Welcome to BIGMUN 2023!
February 22rd - 26th
*Subject to change
It is with a heavy heart that we announce this, but we are sorry to announce that BIGMUN 2022 will be cancelled.
Our organizing team has worked as hard as possible to make BIGMUN 2022 as good an experience as possible over the past year. But due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis that has plagued everyone over the past years, unfortunately, it will no longer be possible for us to host BIGMUN 2022 at the level we would like.
This decision was extremely difficult to make, but in light of the current developments with the COVID-19 situation in Denmark, it was the only responsible one. BIGMUN is a forum for young people to come together to think innovatively about the future of our world. But most importantly, it is a place where we value the safety and wellbeing of all our participants above all else. Regrettably, circumstances made it impossible to uphold these standards this year.
It is a shame that we cannot be together in February at Birkerød Gymnasium, however, the 11th anniversary of BIGMUN will still be celebrated.
The BIGMUN organising team will be putting on a smaller BIGMUN, nicknamed smallMUN, which will be only for students from our own school. While it is not the usual BIGMUN, we wished to keep the BIGMUN spirit alive. You can follow us on our social media, to experience the content which we will create in the coming month.
Or find us on Instagram at @bigmun.2022
Naturally, if there are any questions, concerns or comments, please reach out to us, we will gladly help to the best of our ability in order to correct any final misunderstandings in regards to this announcement.
We sincerely thank everybody who hoped to be and has been a part of BIGMUN 2022, and we look forward to coming together next year for BIGMUN 2023!
The 2022 BIGMUN Organising Team
BIGMUN is an international conference hosted annually by Birkerød Gymnasium and has remained one of the largest and most prestigious in all of Scandinavia. Situated in the beautiful Danish countryside just 25 minutes from the centre of Copenhagen, our school is delighted to welcome a diverse community of delegates and teachers from all over the world to our conference each year.
In 2020, we opened our doors to over 450 participants, where the conference became a meeting point for reflective and engaged individuals. In 2021 BIGMUN was sadly cancelled. However, we are more than proud to announce that BIGMUN will finally return in 2023.
The theme of BIGMUN 2023 is "Learners of Today, Leaders of Tomorrow" focusing on the aptitude of youth in taking on challenges and creating solutions comparable to those passed by actual world leaders. Having observed the genuine commitment and intellect of our participants, we are confident in stating that this generation is the future of global politics. After all, the framework for a brighter future always begins in the classroom, and along with the burning desire to learn, comes the remarkable passion for helping others. In keeping with this theme, this year's chosen charity is "GAME", an NGO founded in Copenhagen with a mission of creating lasting social change through youth-led street sports and culture, which proceeds from our magazine BIGMONITOR will be donated to.
BIGMUN does not believe in notions of winning and losing, being the best competitor, or passing the most amendments. Alternatively, we are keen on building an environment that encourages joint efforts in pursuit of solutions to global issues, and strive to mould our participants into open-minded, collaborative and resolute world citizens.
Birkerød Gymnasium's MUN society is looking forward to once again host an event that fosters lasting friendships, international awareness, and most importantly, the chance to tackle some of the largest problems faced by our generation.
Ultimately, we hereby welcome you to the 11th annual session of BIGMUN 2023!
