Since 1927, Harvard Model United Nations (HMUN), formerly Harvard Model League of Nations, has brought together high school students from across the globe to discuss the most pressing and complex challenges facing our society, and to work together to develop solutions to these issues. In the process, they hone their public speaking, writing, and negotiation skills while gaining exposure to vastly different points of view and forming new friendships with like-minded peers.
In 2010, the first HMUN China was held, becoming the first international conference of its kind.
Harvard Model United Nations China is a four-day international relations simulation for high school students held annually in downtown Beijing. At HMUN China, delegates gain insight into the workings of the United Nations and the dynamics of international relations by assuming the roles of UN representatives and members of other international bodies and national cabinets. HMUN China is an exciting opportunity for students to debate issues that confront world leaders and to draft resolutions in response to these global issues. Participants will develop their abilities to work with others who are equally motivated and passionate about the topics of debate and to respond to global concerns.
