Belgium's best Model United Nations conference
KULMUN 2024: 90 Seconds to Midnight – Tackling Existential Risks in an Age of Emerging Global Threats
March 5 - March 9
In the current day and age, humanity finds itself amidst a number of existential risks, with the clock ticking relentlessly towards midnight. Potentially catastrophic threats such as climate change, the development of new disruptive technologies, escalating tensions leading to international security concerns, global health crises, and rising inequalities are increasing in frequency and already dominating international politics. While these emerging global threats have the potential to reshape our world order, the biggest existential risk they pose is that on communities and individuals who are already struggling to cope with problems such as food and water insecurity, the degradation of their lands and growing social upheaval. Therefore, the KULMUN 2024 conference is aiming to tackle such issues in a wide range of carefully hand-picked committees, suited to all levels of MUN expertise.
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
Whether you are a seasoned MUNer or if you have never attended an MUN conference, we welcome everyone to attend. We offer committees for every skill level. 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.
Kick start your career
With KULMUN's reputable name and its attachment to KU Leuven, Belgium's highest-ranked university, your participation in this conference will show employers both your willingness and ability to expand your skill set in negotiation, mediation, communication, leadership, adaptability and so much more. The skills honed at the KULMUN conference are essential for any career path and so our conference can greatly bolster your resume.
Engage in a variety of interesting and relevant international issues
KULMUN2024 gives its participants the opportunity to learn and engage in active debate on the world's most pressing issues. Last year, for example, we featured six committees that discussed a wide range of fascinating topics including asylum-related concerns of refugees, the rising challenges facing NATO and so much more.
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.
