The team of Poznan Model United Nations 2017 (POZiMUN) would like to kindly welcome you to the fourth edition of this marvellous event. This year, we are offering you four days of debates and negotiations which bring students from all around the world together. The conference will take place in Poznan, Poland from the 4th till the 7th of May, 2017.

  1. POZiMUN, as a model UN conference, is a simulation of different committees of the United Nations Organization.

SECTION A – COMMITTEES

  1. The topic of this year’s conference is “A World in Turmoil: Challenges for the Achievement of Sustainable Development”.

    2. Historical UN Security Council,

  1. The registration of delegates opens on the 2nd of February, 2017 and closes on the 20th of April.

  2. You can apply as a member of a delegation of five or more people (“Delegation 5+”) or a delegation of ten or more people (“Delegation 10+”). Applying as a delegation is profitable for you since the conference fee is lowered. (see Table 1, section C)

Please note that if you choose conference fees without accommodation, you will have to arrange for accommodation yourself.
