FinMUN is an organization for students and young people interested in international relations. We bring together people to organize and participate in Model United Nations (MUN) seminars, debate issues on the UN and global agenda, and develop their understanding of global politics. All interested are welcome, new ideas mean new resolutions!
The Society was founded in 2004 and has so far focused on establishing a solid basis for Model United Nations (MUN) activities in Finland through building relationships with public and private sector contacts, namely the various UN representations and affiliates in Finland. Cooperation with other MUN societies is also a central feature of our work. FinMUN belongs to the United Nations Youth and Students’ Association of Finland and to the UN Association of Finland. FinMUN is a member organization of the Student Union of the University of Helsinki. Although our headquarters is in Helsinki, active members come from all over Finland and the world.
Our activities include most importantly MUN trainings and simulations, seminars, and participation in foreign MUNs. The first international MUN was held in February 2006, with 45 participants from all over the world. You can read more about our MUNs from the Past Conferences -page. Since 2021 we have also organized digital MUNs and digital mini-MUNs, where you can practice your skills, familiarize yourself with the concept of MUN and prepare for the bigger events.
In addition to MUN related activities, we also organize different kinds of events, such as social gatherings, trainings, career related events and for example Diplomatic Breakfast -events, where participants have a chance to talk with professional diplomats and ask questions.

Your location doesn’t matter, as our aim is to further cooperation and communication both nationally and internationally.
