The International Model United Nations Conference (TIMUN) will be held for the fifth consecutive year from the 16th to the 20th September 2020 with the aim of empowering the youth through discussions of the global status quo, in a simulation which
closely parallels the United Nations and its proceedings. Here young minds learn vital skills in research, writing, speaking, negotiation and conflict resolution, as they step into the role of delegates for the countries they represent. It
is with great pleasure that we extend a warm invitation to your respected school/university to attend the fifth annual conference of TIMUN.
Over the past four years, TIMUN witnessed the collective participation of over 500 students representing some of the distinguished schools and universities in Sri Lanka. Following the success of the last few years, we at TIMUN have taken up the challenge of reforming the MUN arena of Sri Lanka. TIMUN is all about redefinition. Hence the conference is colored by an enriching agenda composed of a memorable committee experience, an exceptional array of keynote speeches, an engaging crisis simulation and other vibrant events which unite to form an unparalleled Model UN conference.
This year is one of growth for TIMUN. Not only will the Conference be held for five days to allow for a wholesome experience, it will also be a truly global MUN platform as we are striving for a participation of 500 international delegates from all parts of the world for the conference. Through this, we hope to globalize the Sri Lankan brand in the international MUN arena.
A simple idea with a vision to provide a platform for collaboration amongst students to work towards forming resolutions to address current world issues.The central objectives of TIMUN are to revolutionize the MUN experience into an international level conference and to provide students of the region and the world an in-depth knowledge on global problems and an understanding of the causes of international conflict to allow students to form diplomacy and global prospective.

The ones who believe in change and runs the extra mile
“ Conference was a word that's come to mean so much that it's also a word that has come to mean MUN. We aren’t focusing on just running a conference but rather developing ideas and helping students learn something new. We lead it in a way for students to encounter not just quality debating but many more skills sets in the process. Our goal is in providing a diplomatic platform for debating and experiencing a revolutionary MUN Conference that boasts simplified sustainable solutions to what are incredibly complex problems. And I personally love witnessing how the skills learnt at TIMUN will mold global citizens.
“ We at TIMUN take pride in inculcating a true Model UN experience, one that ensures true diplomatic and leadership skills are embedded at a very young age. We teach MUN, treating it not just as a debating arena but rather a platform for students to rediscover themselves and help them prep for a challenging future ahead. MUN Changed the course of my life and I enjoy teaching, the knowledge and skills it imparted on me to my fellow students and see them take flight.
“ Timun is not just a conference but rather a platform to sharpen and mold each and every students diplomacy and leadership skills. We expect our delegates to step out by learn something new. TIMUN opens a whole new experience to the ambassadors and delegates by not just debating on real world situations but also on fictional crisis by bringing the whole house onto their feet. We hope TIMUN provides our delegates with more than what's expected.
