Bond University High School Model United Nations (BUHMUN) conference

BUHMUN: Inspiring the leaders of tomorrow

The primary objective of the Bond University High School Model United Nations (BUHMUN) is to inspire and shape the future leaders of tomorrow. This two-day conference challenges secondary students to embrace the role of a modern diplomat and represent a country’s position in simulated international debates addressing the world’s most pressing issues. BUHMUN provides an immersive, exciting, and informative experience for high schoolers to learn about international relations. The Faculty of Society & Design at Bond University has been proud to host this event since it was first established in 2017 as Australia’s first university-run MUN for high school students.

BUHMUN 2024 will be taking place on Tuesday 7 and Wednesday 8 May at Bond University’s Gold Coast Campus.

What is a MUN?

A Model United Nations (MUN) is a simulated sitting of the United Nations wherein students adopt the role of a representative for a specific country. Each student represents the interests of their adopted country as the conference deliberates significant global issues. Throughout the MUN, students can expect to provide opening statements, negotiate with their colleagues on potential solutions, and ultimately come to a consensus on a resolution, all while ensuring their country’s voice is heard. 


BUHMUN 2024, will focus on two critical Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): SDG 10 Reduced Inequalities, and SDG 13 – Climate Action. BUHMUN 2024 will challenge delegates to contribute meaningfully to pursuing a more equitable and sustainable future by centring discussions and actions around these global issues. Climate change has far-reaching consequences, impacting population displacement and exacerbating social and economic inequalities. This topic will delve into the intersection between climate change, forced migration, and the unequal distribution of resources and opportunities. Delegates will explore policy measures and collaborative efforts to address these challenges within the framework of SDG13 and SDG10.

BUHMUN 2024 aspires to provide a platform for delegates to engage in thought-provoking discussions, innovative solutions, and impactful actions by tackling these interconnected challenges and nurturing these valuable partnerships.

Hear from our MUNers

  • “BUHMUN was a truly incredible experience. It was amazing being granted access to the world of diplomacy whilst gaining insight into the hard work and dedication that goes into maintaining diplomatic relations across the world. I truly appreciate the opportunity that I was given to represent the nation of Jamaica in complex and thoughtful discussions surrounding some of the world’s most pressing issues - issues which are not just relevant to governments, but to society as a whole."

  • “I was really nervous to attend BUHMUN as I had never participated in any previous MUN conferences. However, the experience was amazing, and I had a great time. I was able to learn so much about the United Nations and how delegates from a range of different countries come together to write resolutions.”
