Dear visitor and esteemed delegates,

It is a delight to announce and extend an invitation to the 16th annual session of Oldenburg Model United Nations, OLMUN 2016. More than 700 school delegates from Germany, Poland, USA, Turkey and other countries come to Oldenburg each summer to address and discuss global issues on eight selected committees of the United Nations in the context of worldwide challenges.

The conference is scheduled to take place from June 14-17, 2016 and promises to be an amazing week full of captivating debates, fruitful resolutions and plenty of fun.

For more than a decade OLMUN has offered the opportunity to the world‘s students to benefit from an experience of unique education in politics, elocution and comprehension of foreign affairs. During the OLMUN‘s week the delegates of the various committees face global challenges. By representing their assigned nation and its position the students bring international problems to life and possess the chance to resolve these concerned issues with their own resolutions.

OLMUN has distinguished itself as the largest MUN in Germany and therefore arouses considerable public interest every year which proves its cross-cultural competence, innovation and overall quality.

The Security Council at OLMUN in particular forces the delegates to improvise and cogitate on their feet since it features an integrated crisis simulation. This consequently makes the delegates work as one team due to the simulated urgent need to solve the demanding and international problem.

The OLMUN philosophy therefore strongly focuses on current affairs and realism so that the conference itself presents an accurate reflection of the global situation which underlines the utmost urgency of resourceful solutions.

As every year we will have a new committee at the OLMUN conference. This year the new committee will be the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).  The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations is a specialized agency that is engaged in the fight against hunger an elimination of food insecurity and malnutrition. Furthermore, it supports techniques and systems to make agriculture, fisheries and forestry more efficient and sustainable.

A highlight of this year’s conference will be an additional committee adding to the eight councils we entertain every year. This will be the historical security council. "Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it". It is with this quote from George Santayana that we begin to explain the importance of an organ like the Historical Security Council of the United Nations. A hindsight to the past, this committee gives delegates the opportunity to bring back what has already occurred through the history and roots of the United Nations, remembering the events that marked human existence for eternity.

So if you are interested in the concept of a Model UN Conference and how we give the participating students a one of a kind life experience in diplomatic proceedings and an insight view into the UN, feel free to review this website, and contact us for further information.

We appreciate your time and attention and are looking forward to seeing you in June!
