WorldMUN was founded in 1991 by several Harvard students who were looking to create a different Model United Nations experience.  It was only natural that the conference’s first session would be in Miedzyzdroje, Poland, a city that had just had its borders opened with the fall of the Iron Curtain.  There were about 300 delegates in 18 committees at the 1992 conference.  WorldMUN grew for several years, and, in 1997, the conference partnered with its first host team, the Budapest University of Economic Sciences.  With the introduction of the host team, the conference began to develop its social activities to expand the conference experience beyond committee: Global Village, with delegates bringing food, drink, songs and traditions from their homelands, and Cabaret, a global talent show, began to bookend the conference as much as Opening and Closing Ceremonies did.

From the conference’s 10th year on, it began to venture beyond the traditional cities of Europe into Asia Minor, South America, North Africa and the Middle East, East Asia and even North America. As the conference moves into its 22nd year, it has grown to represent the most diverse university conference in the world.  WorldMUN was founded in a spirit of idealism and today’s conference represents that philosophy in a way that promises a unique experience to its more than 2,200 delegates from over 65 countries.
