The MIT Model United Nations Conference (MITMUNC) is very proud to announce the first branch of our conference outside of the United States, MITMUNC China!

The second edition of MITMUNC China was held in Shanghai from Friday, August 24th through Sunday, August 26th, 2018 and consisted of six unique committees, each directed by MIT undergraduate students. All committee directors had previously chaired for our homegrown MITMUNC conference, held annually at MIT in the early spring, for one or more conferences, and had a great experience with this unique cross-cultural opportunity.

MITMUNC China is closely co-organized with ASDAN China. ASDAN is an educational non-profit based in the United Kingdom and offers international educational programs in China, Europe, North America. MITMUNC China will be a three-day conference and follow a similar schedule to our homegrown conference, but will follow the same rules and procedures.

Above all, MITMUNC China offers around 300 Chinese high school students across the Asian nation the opportunity to debate upon important international issues posing veritable challenges to the world today, such as the reality of climate change, cybersecurity, and refugee assistance in conflict zones.

MITMUNC China challenges its delegates to cooperate and perform their very best to develop feasible solutions to these diverse problems. MITMUNC China’s mission resonates very closely with the M.I.T. Campaign for a Better World, pursuing education, research, and innovation with a passion for serious impact.

We are thrilled on the renewal of this as an annual venture and all look forward to meeting the third group of MITMUNC China delegates come next August!
