Babcock International Model United Nations (BIMUN) is a national initiative of young leaders to engage and energize young supporters around the work of the United Nations. It is the first Model United Nations in Nigeria organized by a private university and it is an internationally diverse Model United Nations Conference.
BIMUN empowers a new generation of young Africans to be leaders in helping the United Nations build a better world for all. Through an international network with over 54 African Countries, BIMUN facilitates youth engagement, advocacy efforts, education programs, and public events for African youths. It is hosted by Babcock University and as a University she is not insulated from the happenings of the time, the university has chosen to be part of the solution. In this ever globalizing age, she is clear about where she is headed and the role she has to play, the building blocks of globalization remain the nation-state and the university functions within this scope.
Babcock University has grown a great deal since her inception in 1999 and anyone who comes in contact with Babcock moves ahead to embrace the world, perform upon its stage and make the necessary impact for a better world.
Since 1946, the United Nations has been dedicated to building understanding of and support for the ideals and work of the UN globally. It is only with the continued commitment of passionate delegates that we can continue to educate, inspire and mobilize youths globally to support the vital work of the United Nations!
BIMUN features 6 simulated committees from the United Nations. The conference blends together intensive committee sessions with exciting interactive sessions and social events to provide an unparalleled experience. BIMUN offer students an opportunity to lead and advocate in their communities.
We invite anyone willing to create a better tomorrow for everyone though diplomacy and anyone who believes our voice can shape our future and make a difference to apply and take part at the BIMUN Conference. We hope to inspire everyone to speak up and effect change in the world tomorrow through rigorous discourse and debate today to enable us all build a more peaceful, and prosperous tomorrow for ourselves and generations to come. All participants would take part in various committees as delegates over the course of three days within which they would intensively debate and discuss the pressing issues faced by our world today.
At BIMUN, you will be provided with an economic, political, socio-cultural and strategic view of the world just as though you were in the United Nations Conference. It will be a platform for you to have an insight as to diplomacy, international relations and the United Nations. Through committee sessions, interactive sessions and extra-curricular activities, we will present you with an unforgettable experience that will stimulate you to think critically about world issues and find innovative solutions to them. We are committed to ensuring that our participants have the most meaningful and enriching experience possible.
At the end of it all, we desire delegates to understand that no matter where they are from, issues which affect places far away from home can affect them equally, and that it is only through international cooperation and negotiation we can find avenues to solve these issues.
