Blagoevgrad International Model United Nations (BLIMUN) is a college-level simulation organized by the Model United Nations Club at the American University in Bulgaria. The Model UN Club was established by a group of highly motivated and socially responsible young people who wished to give the chance to future leaders from more than 40 different countries to raise their voice in a more formal political environment. Now, seven years later, the AUBG Model UN is an entirely student-run club, whose mission is to advance the understanding of both the United Nations as an organization and contemporary international issues through collaboration and cooperative conflict resolution. The underpinning objective of its work is to promote the values of the United Nations by inspiring students to be responsive to the needs of societies worldwide.
The AUBG MUN Club organizes workshops, invites guest lecturers at the American University in Bulgaria, and prepares other events alike, thus allowing members and participants to meet and develop an appreciation of contemporary problems affecting the lives of today’s global society. The club also seeks national and international recognition from other, venerable, Model UN organizations. In structural terms, the AUBG Model United Nations Club is organized around an Executive Committee, with the work divided amongst Supporting Bureaus. The main objective of the club is to organize successfully the annual BLIMUN conference. This year, we are celebrating our seventh year of hosting the Model United Nations conference at the premises of the American University in Bulgaria.
