DEPARTMENTS

The departments of GIMUN are small groups of around 5 to 10 students that are interested in one or multiple aspects of the association. The working groups give the participants the possibility to acquire professional skills in various domains.

Currently, GIMUN has three departments, one for Public Relations, under the Public Relations director of GIMUN, one for Finances, led by the Finance Director of GIMUN, as well as a department for Events, which organises under the watch of the Vice-Presidency.

The departments are open to students from all academic backgrounds and previous experience is not required.

Tasks

The GIMUN delegation is an opportunity to grow as an individual and as a debater. Every week, participants meet to develop public speaking skills, discuss international current affairs, and to gain mastery of the codes of the traditional MUN debate. This holistic approach creates the ideal environment for everyone to become an excellent delegate.

 

In concrete terms, our weekly meetings centre around different activities, all of which aim to train future delegates. Each meeting is divided into two parts.

​To sum up, the GIMUN delegation represents both an extension and a practical application of your academic studies. It also constitutes an amazing social circle of passionate students. Joining the delegation means joining the worldwide MUN community as well as the local GIMUN community, which are both full of driven and smart students willing to make a difference in the world.
