KULMUN2023:  Diplomacy Redefined - Navigating through a Sea of Global Challenges

March 7 - March 11

The KULMUN conference of 2023 is all about coming up with new solutions to face globally threatening, constantly recurring problems. Think about issues such as climate change, political instability, economic crises... While we hope to near the end of a world-wide pandemic, we ought to look for new opportunities to rebuild and improve our societies. It is up to the diplomats and politicians of tomorrow to cooperate and tackle these global challenges.

In March 2023 we will organize our second hybrid conference. Just like last year, most of our committees will be held in real life during our physical conference in Leuven. However, the ongoing pandemic taught us that online platforms offer great opportunities to overcome time and space. That is why we have again decided to organize one of our committees (UN Women) on an online platform. Unlike the in-person conference, this committee will last from March 9 to March 11. Because of this online option, you no longer have to miss out on our conference due to time or travel constraints. Find out more about our digital UN Women committee on the 'Topics and Committees'-webpage.

What is KULMUN?

The KULMUN conference is Belgium's premium MUN conference, a reputation fostered through 10 years of experience. Our conference aims to simulate the diplomatic work of the United Nations by debating a range of international issues using the same procedures as the real UN. Each year we have delivered an incredible conference and this year is set to be even better. 

Open to anyone

You may attend no matter what country you study in or what your study is.  Our main concern is not your level of experience in MUN and international politics, but your interest and motivation in participating.

Connected to Belgium's oldest and most prestigious university

KU Leuven has maintained its place as one of the world's highest-ranking universities and is also one of the oldest. This certainly elevates our conference thanks to the universities support and endorsement.
