A Future Informed but not Restrained by the Past
February 23 - 26, 2023
Welcome to BEIMUN
We’re delighted to announce that both the 30th annual Beijing Model United Nations conference and BEIMUN Beijing are now in preparation. BEIMUN-BJ will be hosted in-person from October 28th to 30th, 2022, and BEIMUN XXX will be hosted online from February 23th to 26th, 2023.
The BEIMUN Secretariat will be hard at work preparing for the upcoming conferences. All the information including committees, topics, chair applications, and more have been released.
BEIMUN has a proud history of serving as a platform for global-minded debate and discussion amongst the leaders of tomorrow. We hope to see you join us in this engaging experience this October or next February.

Secretariat of the 30th Annual Session of BEIMUN
"The Model United Nations program in Beijing is an extension of The Hague International Model United Nations (THIMUN). As an affiliate, BEIMUN seeks to reflect the ideas and principles of a peaceful post-Cold War world. The Coordinators of the program believe that this world order more accurately reflects the original motives of the authors of the 1945 San Francisco Charter than events following the Potsdam Conference of the same year. It is our hope that BEIMUN will continue to act as another regional center of THIMUN conference affiliates helping to revitalize the original ideals of the United Nations."
– Irwin Stein, Founder of BEIMUN, January 1993.
Power of Possibility: Capitalizing on the Potential of our Youth
Wars, climate change, humanitarian crises: we live in an age where negative news is ubiquitous. Regardless of who is to blame, the responsibility of solving these problems falls upon our generation. It may be easy to despair in the face of uncertainty, but at this decisive turning point in our history, we must not underestimate the power of our youth as agents of change. Ahead of us lies the possibility to rectify the mistakes of the past and redefine the direction moving forward. We must act upon these issues with the utmost urgency and unity, arming ourselves with knowledge, compassion, and hope so that we may together capitalize on the potential of our youth to realize a vision for a peaceful and prosperous future ahead.
