Dear prospective C’MUN participants,
It is my great honor and pleasure to welcome you on behalf of the Catalonia Model United Nation’s Secretariat.
Spain’s first Model United Nations will celebrate its 15th edition from April 23rd to April 26th in the wonderful city of Barcelona. Moreover, the upcoming edition will coincide with one of the most famous and beautiful festivities in Catalonia: St. Jordi.
This conference is not only known for its excellent academic standards but also for gathering very different individuals who have the opportunity to share their passion for international affairs in an international and multicultural atmosphere. Your participation in C’MUN will bring you the opportunity to practice and strengthen interpersonal skills such as lobbying and negotiation, teamwork, public speaking and most importantly, the empathy needed to argue and understand others’ opinions.
Maintaining the tradition, the venue will be CosmoCaixa, situated in a privileged spot that offers an incredible view of Barcelona’s skyline. Moreover, you will have the chance to interact with your co-delegates and enjoy Barcelona’s vibrant nights because, besides the academic side, a crucial goal of Model United Nations is to foster human relations and building what can end up being life-long friendships.
The Secretariat of C’MUN 2020 has and will put their heart and soul to make C’MUN 15th edition of the most memorable ones upon the date. We have carefully selected challenging committees and topics that will help to bring out the best of yourselves with the help of the best team of Committee Directors, who will guide you during this 4-day adventure.
The C’MUN team is looking forward to seeing you in our 15th edition and we hope that you will leave Barcelona with wonderful memories and eager to come back for the following edition.

C’MUN: THE MODEL UNITED NATIONS OF BARCELONA
C’MUN was funded in May 2006 by ANUE, the United Nations Association of Spain, as the first simulation of the United Nations bodies in Spain, for university students. The immense success, more than 200 participants from 60 universities around the world, the support of the Catalan institutions and, above all, the enthusiasm of the participants, convinced us that the C’MUN was not only a commendable experience, but also something that had become a fundamental activity. The C’MUN attracts both beginners and MUN veterans, giving beginners the opportunity to learn and discover, and to the experienced ones, to improve and share abilities, making debates intense and profitable. And in addition to the amazing response of the participants to the Model -more than 400-, one of the most remarkable aspects and of which we are very proud, is the involvement of the Catalan institutions (Parliament, City Council and Government of Catalonia) with the C’MUN.
