Welcome to MUN BILBAO 2020!

Welcome to the official website for Model United Nations Bilbao, organised by the Educational Group COAS, AYALDE and MUNABE

Fellow delegates, honorable Chairs and advisors,

It is a pleasure to welcome you once again to our annual conference, which will take place in our school, Colegio Ayalde, between 28th and 31th of January 2021.

The Secretariat team is looking forward to leading a conference where delegates will find fruitful solutions to the most alarming problems facing our society today. Delegates will have to do their utmost to make the world in which we live a better place.

We are particularly pleased to focus on the Sustainable Development Goals as we are a MUN Impact Partner Club and also a MUN Impact Conference. Also, we offer delegates the opportunity to sit on an Model Arctic Council, one of only three such high school simulations in the world. In addition, for MUN Bilbao 2021 we have implemented an International Court of Justice (ICJ) and a Youth Committee for students aged 13-14 attending their first conference.

Once again, we are delighted to organize MUN Bilbao and to help improve our world, because the Earth is a good place and we have to fight for it!

Registration is open from the end of May 2020.  We hope you enjoy the conference!

Maria Fernández

Maria Fernández

Secretary General
Hello everyone! I am María Fernández and it is such an honour to be the Secretary General of MUN Bilbao 2021! I started doing MUN two years ago and I immediately loved this amazing programme. In 2019, I attended for the first time MUN Bilbao as a delegate in the Special Conference on SDGs and in 2020, I attended MUN Bilbao as a Chair of the same Committee. Taking part in this Committee made me realise my engagement towards the SDGs, so I decided to join our MUN Impact Club, where I discovered my passion. Recently, I have been appointed Co-Deputy Secretary General of Europe and we are already kicking it off! Admittedly, before getting involved in this project I barely knew about the problems that bothered our world and about how young people, like us, could contribute to solving them. However, I am know eager to tackle these issues, in order to make the world a better place. I am sure this conference will address many of these problems and we will take a step forward towards them. So let’s do this together! I am very looking forward to meeting you all and having a great time with fruitful debates and amazing resolutions!!
