“闪亮之梦”全国中学生模拟联合国大会(BDMUNC)自 2010 年创立以来,在“非营利”、“广泛参与度”、“高参会体验度”的三大核心理念的指导下,竭力为国内中学生打造一个低参会门槛、高性价比体验的模拟联合国会议平台。目前已成功举办 6 届寒假会议、2 届北方分会及 4 届暑期会议,为近 5000 名代表带去了的优质的会议体验。“闪亮之梦”致力于搭建风格严谨、氛围自由的模联学术平台,在六年多的发展过程中,涌现出了一批题材新颖独特,学术特色鲜明的优秀模联会场。

爱梦模拟联合国协会(IMUNC)是学生独立运营的、不以营利为目的的社团类模联组织,成立于 2008 年,九年来已相继举办过 9 次全国会议和 15 次地区分会。爱梦拥有其独创的联动体系,一支专业化的法学分支学术团队和以真实世界模拟为原则的创新分支,并坚持“通过高质量的活动来联系、教育和激发最伟大的青年人——每人、每校、每个社区”。九年来,爱梦本着“Better than Best”的理念,以“帮助代表成为更好的自己”为宗旨,为近 5000 名模联爱好者提供了高质量的模联学术活动。

鉴于 BDMUNC 与 IMUNC 在为代表提供最优质的会议体验、为学术团队提供专业学术平台的办会理念上高度契合,鉴于双方在会务和学术上的高度互补,我们在此荣幸地宣布,爱梦模拟联合国协会与“闪亮之梦”模拟联合国教育平台将在下一年度正式开启战略性合作。双方将在涉及学术合作共建的会议中共同发起学术指导及会场设计的招募活动。集合双方多年的学术积累及办会经验,我们相信,合作双方能为学术指导提供更为宽旷的平台来进一步思考如何改进现有的学术体系,并对当前会议设置之外的问题做出探讨。我们认为,每一份学术设计,无论是否能够最终呈现给代表,都不能缺少卓越的思辨与严谨的学术讨论。这不仅是一次对学术能力的考验,更是一次对创新型模拟联合国会议的重新定义;我们希望,能再次走入那些个文思泉涌的夜晚,找到那些创意满满的有志青年,实现那个我们一直坚守着的、学术至上的承诺。

我们相信,我们的会议将尽可能地让更多优秀的代表参与最高水准的学术盛宴,享受低限度干涉的自由会议氛围,于青春之书着墨,留下最有意义的一笔。

如果你不再希望被规则束缚,

如果你依然对模拟联合国活动怀揣理想,

如果你依然对学术研究充满激情与向往,

请与我们一起继续,踏上这条追求极致的道路,在这更宽旷的舞台上用年轻的汗水书写你的理想。

IMUNC has updated the IMUNC 2016 Conference Brochure on April 15. The new version, 8.2.0, includes important changes in academic design and other aspects. All IMUNC 2016 delegates and applicants are encouraged to visit this page to read the changelog and download the latest Conference Brochure.

IMUNC today announces its brand new iSeminar project. As another “i” product that builds the core competitiveness of IMUNC after iCourt, iAchievement, iPlacard and iNformation, iSeminar will be a IMUNC’s latest attempt in online education field. It will integrate current IMUNC non-conference educational resources – Academic Dessert, Academic Salon, and the iXplore program Academic Pioneer to provide the delegates with more systematic and superior online education resources.

IMUNC’s Academic Dessert was created in 2011. Since then, it has attracted thousands of Academic Directors and delegates to participate in it as speakers and audiences. inspiring clashes of idea among the diversity of thoughts and knowledge. On the evenings during our annual conferences, speakers and audiences gather for deep discussion and deliberation on various academic topics. Distinguished from other Model UN events, IMUNC spares the evenings of the annual conferences for Academic Desserts to assist delegates to acquire knowledge beyond their own committees with streamlined courses, and furthermore, to establish an equal and efficient knowledge exchange platform.

On the other hand, since March 2015, Academic Directors from different divisions, different fields and different backgrounds have already brought 50 Academic Salons to participants of Model. Through online communication systems, the speakers have cultivated delegates’ academic spirits through illustration and group discussion on the hot issues in various fields. They have also expanded learning outside the conference rooms and brought about ideas to our delegates on how to put what they have learned in practice. In 2016, IMUNC will launch a customized salon project. It will break physical limitations and connect Academic Directors and delegates. It will also construct a more convenient platform for academic communication for all.

Academic Pioneer is the iXplore program that IMUNC has been researching on and exploring. In a period of 10 weeks, our Academic Directors, with their rich experiences and professional academic backgrounds, will be the lecturers guiding the discussion and providing analyses on specific hotspot issues of world politics, economics, law and philosophy, through online systems. Different from independent Academic Salons and Academic Desserts, a ten-week academic research cycle will enhance delegates’ understanding of professional academic concepts, and apply them in real-life problem solving. Through Academic Pioneer, not only can all participants gain a deeper understanding of cutting-edge academic theories, but they can also enjoy the academic research like undergraduate or even graduate students.

iSeminar represents our first step towards online education. We will keep devoting ourselves to bringing all delegates the best academic knowledge.

Since its inception in June 2015, over one hundred pieces of news and editorials have been published on iNformation, attracting over 10,000 views. The iNformation media website, imunc.info, went online in October 2015, marking its maturation. Now, let us go back to where we started, and think again about our vision for iNformation.

The world is flat today. Every one of us could get the latest information instantly through newspapers, television, and the Internet. However, we have discovered that most Chinese language media focus on the world they have contact with and offer relevant international news that are of concern to their readers. Our delegates only read news that are about events we, or our country, participate in, but forget about information in Africa, the South Pacific, Liechtenstein, and other parts of the world that are essential for world citizens. The topics of these information range from climate, poverty, to war and conflict. To become a qualified participant of Model UN and a citizen with horizon and vision, our delegates must possess these wisdoms.

At IMUNC, we believe that providing our delegates with a steady flow of world news and editorials in Chinese will help us to reach our goal. When our delegates climb through the well of the “known world” and see the big picture, a revitalization of their views of the world will begin to unfold.

Based on this ideal, iNformation in IMUNC 2016 will, in the following weeks, transform itself to a news platform that offers world news and unique opinions in Chinese. We will gradually expand its coverage, edit and publish less-visited issues including the latest dynamics of world politics, economics, foreign affairs, and law, and extend our vision to the forgotten corners of the world. We will also update our media website, imunc.info, and provide a smoother and more relevant reading experience.

In the recently-closed IMUNC 2016 Eastern Regional Conference, we presented 5 Academic Desserts to our delegates of the Regional Conference. More coming soon! In April, we will continue bringing 7 Academic Salons to everyone.

I Model United Nations (IMUNC) has announced today a major update to its Logo.

new-logo

The new Logo introduced significant changes. Among these changes, the switch from six hands to five hands holding together was the most notable one. This shift was made to meet IMUNC’s organizational restructuring as the old six-hand represented the initial six committees during IMUNC’s establishment and the new five-hand the current five divisions of IMUNC – Crisis Division, Innovation Division, Law Division, the Secretariat and IT Department. The six-to-five switch marks the continuous growing up of IMUNC.

This key change, after IMUNC became the biggest independent Model United Nations conference in China, will lead all members of IMUNC to adhere IMUNC’s idea of never perfect and start pushing forward towards the upcoming journey, said the Chairman of the Board of Directors & President of IMUNC.

The new Logo will replace the current one after IMUNC 2016 Eastern Regional Conference.

IMUNC is an independent, student-founded, student-run, not-for-profit Model United Nations conference. Founded in 2008, IMUNC has held nine major national conferences and 15 regional conferences, and has become one of the most recognized MUN conferences in China. It designs premium Model United Nations, Mock Trial, Strategic Simulation and other simulation-based activities.

The online phone interview process of IMUNC 2016 has already begun. Per our tradition, we will hold in-person interview sessions in April. Each of these sessions will include multiple interviewers from the Crisis Division, the Innovation Division, and the Law Division, in order to more comprehensively evaluate the candidate and provide relevant guidance.
