What is TIMUN?
The International Model United Nations (TIMUN) is a three day simulation on international relations through discussions of the global status quo, which closely parallels the United Nations and its proceedings. The conference held annually in Colombo, Sri Lanka, empowers young minds to develop vital skills in research, writing, speaking, negotiation and conflict resolution, as they step into the role of delegates for the countries they represent. At TIMUN, delegates gain in-depth insights into the workings of the United Nations and the dynamics of international relations by assuming the roles of world leaders and international decision makers. TIMUN provides that ideal platform for young leaders to debate the most pressing issues of the day and to draft innovative and creative solutions.
True to the spirit of the United Nations, TIMUN endeavors to foster a constructive forum for open dialogue on a range of complex issues, including international peace, security, and economic and social progress. We believe this experience will challenge delegates to think critically about policies and to drive change within their communities. Since its inception, TIMUN has strived to create a community of ambitious and talented delegates from all corners of Sri Lanka and the world, who feel passionately about the future of the Earth and recognize their power to mold it for the better.
