"Speak Up, Stand Up - Be the Change"

HamMUN (Hamburg Model United Nations) has set standards for Model UN Conferences worldwide during the past years. Hamburg Model United Nations is a Model UN Conference in the wonderful city of Hamburg that lasts four days. During the conference several UN Committees and regional bodies are simulated. In addition, we have created a thrilling cross-cabinet Crisis Simulation and a historical crisis for the MUN-Veterans among you that will challenge every single delegate. Since 1998, students from in- and outside Germany travelled to Hamburg to participate in a Model UN Conference. In the course of the past 18 years, the HamMUN became the biggest conference of its kind in Germany, attracting MUN veterans, experts and newbies alike.
