It is our greatest pleasure to invite you to the 15th annual session of Model United Nations, Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (MUNESCO), hosted by Bilkent Laboratory and International School in Ankara, Turkey. This year MUNESCO will take place from March 15th to March 18th, 2019.

Model United Nations conferences are student-led events that aim to simulate the United Nations by debating and finding solutions to current global issues whilst adhering to strict parliamentary procedure. MUNESCO is an affiliate of The Hague International Model United Nations Program and is a conference that is modeled on the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). As the mission of the THIMUN Foundation states, MUNESCO wishes to give its participants “a deep insight into the world’s problems, to make them aware of the causes of conflict between nations and to lead them to a better understanding of interests and motivation of others.”

This year’s theme “Bridging A World Growing Apart” focuses on uniting the nations and societies which is pertinent in today’s developing world as, in many ways, we are drifting further apart.  

As part of the organizing team of MUNESCO 2019, we are working diligently and passionately to put together a 4-day symposium for you, a place where we hope to see you make new connections,  broaden your ideas, debate on resolutions, and create unforgettable memories. We would be honored if you would join us throughout this incredible journey.

The participants of MUNESCO should be high school students.  Participants can participate as delegates, student officers, press members, historical committee members or International Court of Justice members. Please keep in mind that the applications for student officers, press members, historical committee members and International Court of Justice members should be filled individually.

If you are interested in attending, our registration is open in our website: We would be honored to see you participate in our conference. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Most Sincerely,
