About SLMUN

Sri Lanka Model United Nations, abbreviated as SLMUN, is a simulation of a United Nations conference, created to foster diplomacy, critical thinking and debate skills within the youth. Each participant is formally known as a delegate and represents a certain country within a certain mock UN committee for the duration of the conference. The first MUN was held in 1949 in the United States of America, but over the decades it has evolved and spread to the east as well. In 2008, the Sri Lanka Model United Nations was born, and in 2018 it stands as the largest student run Model United Nations in the entirety of Asia. With over a 100 school, 1000 delegates and 10 committees, SLMUN aims to take MUN to all corners of Sri Lanka. At SLMUN, the core objective is to foster a sense of diplomacy and negotiating skills within the youth to create true and fair leaders. SLMUN encourages young voices to rise up make a difference irrelevant of background and age. It also acts as a platform of learning, fostering relations and improving public speaking. Last year we celebrated our 10 th session, a decade of excellence. Our theme for this year is ‘Redefining Global Diplomacy’. Through connecting the youth today, Sri Lanka Model United Nations hopes to create a better tomorrow. Hundreds of students have already been put into the fold of diplomacy and negotiations, allowing them to become true leaders, through SLMUN.
