BUHMUN conference theme
Continuing our ongoing quest to elevate awareness of the United Nations SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), the theme for BUHMUN VII will be centred around Sustainable Development Goal 2: To end hunger, achieve food security, improve nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture.
The theme was chosen, in part, as 2023 is the International Year of Millets. According to the UN, millets have served as a traditional food staple for hundreds of millions of people in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia for 7,000 years; however, their cultivation is declining in many countries, and their potential to address climate change and food security is not being realised in full.
The BUHMUN committee system is designed to accommodate both individual delegates and team delegations. A team delegation will represent the same country over all five committees. Each delegate is expected to submit a position paper addressing the committee topic to be eligible for a BUHMUN award.
