DUE TO THE OUTBREAK OF CODVID-19 THIS CONFERENCE HAS BEEN POSTPONED FOR A YET UNKNOW DATE. MORE INFORMATION: https://lisbomun.pt/official-statements/
The LisboMUN Association is proud to announce the 2nd Edition of the Lisbon International Model United Nations Conference. It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend Lisbon's only International MUN in March 2020!
After a successful first edition we have decided to expand this year's conference to 4-day MUN for University Students, keeping our partnership with Faculdade de Direito da Universidade de Lisboa, where the conference will be held. Delegates will have the chance of debating in committees with a maximum of 40 participants, challenging themselves into the world of international relations and diplomacy. With this conference, you will also be able to discover Lisbon and it's magnificent buildings and history, creating a cultural and night life experience never to be forgotten.
This second edition of LisboMUN will be focused on Goal 10 of the Sustainable Development Goals "Reduce inequality within and among countries". Inequality threatens longterm social and economic development, harms poverty reduction and destroys people’s sense of fulfillment and self-worth, which, in turn, can breed crime, disease and environmental degradation. It is a major issue our world is facing today that requires global solutions that cover the three dimensions of sustainable development – economic, social and environmental. From the promotion of better representation of minorities and equal opportunities for women, to State policies focused on economic and technological growth, the theme "Reduced Inequalities" will allow delegates to explore the most current issues on the international agenda.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us. For more information on the conference be sure to check our website and social media.
We hope to see you in Lisbon in March,
Teresa Bouza Serrano
