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
The current moment of transition exists on the frontier between the old and the new, between tradition and innovation, and between the past and the future. The present global situation is a direct result of centuries of unresolved tensions, conflicts, and unprecedented change and upheaval. Nations are struggling to escape the shackles of the past and to recover and rebuild as together, we prepare ourselves to face what will surely be even greater challenges ahead. Before we look ahead to addressing this unknown future, we must first look back into the past and attempt to learn what we can from our mistakes. Although we cannot change the past, it is imperative that we learn from it as we plot the course ahead. Only in this way, can the past begin to serve as the inspiration for creative solutions rather than a spectre that continues to haunt us. Therefore, we, the Secretariat of BEIMUN XXX, strongly believe in a future that is informed but in no way restrained by the past.
