What can I expect from the conference?

You can find a family within our association and participants. You will be debating at the UN City of Germany, and will meet inspiring people such as our keynote and committee speakers. You will have lots of fun and we will make sure that you have an incredible time at BIMUN/SINUB 2021!

What are the committees at this year's conference?

The press team is called BIMUN Tribune and as a journalist in the press team you will have the possibility to report about the debates in the committees.

If you would like to represent a country and discuss about international politics, you should join one of our four debating committees which are the United Nations Development Programme, the Food and Agriculture Organization, the Council of the European Union and the United Nations Security Council.

Can I be sure that I will be able to represent one of the countries that were listed in my priorities in the application form?

-> We are trying our best to fulfill your wishes and try to give everyone their highest priority. 

I have never participated at a MUN before, can I still participate without problems?

 

-> Yes, you can! We are more than happy to welcome first-time-MUNers at our conference in Bonn. Don't be afraid to apply. Everything will be explained for you in detail and of course you are always allowed to ask questions.

Are there any special committees for beginners?

 

-> No, there aren't. Just choose a committee with topics that you are interested in. Every committee will integrate you into the debates and you will be able to learn a lot about MUNing from more experienced MUNers.

I would like to participate, but I don't know what the fee is for participating as a journalist or delegate?

I am a vegetarian. Will there be a vegetarian food option at all times?

-> Yes! Actually there won't be any meat options at all. We are a Green Conference and therefore it is important to us to just offer healthy and climate-neutral food if possible.

BIMUN/SINUB e.V. will provide you with a letter of invitation to enable an easier application process for the visa, however you are responisble to fill out all the needed documents and inform yourself. We can reccommend to visit the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany.

What will happen if I applied for the conference, and because of Covid-19 regulations, it has to be changed to an online format?

 

-> If we have to come to the decision of changing our conference to an online format, we will first notify you. Then, you can decide if you would like to keep participating or if you want your money back. If you would like to keep participating, we will refund the difference of the prices of the fees (85€).
