The mission of the THIMUN Foundation is to promote and foster collaborative solution-oriented discussion to important global issues by instilling a life-long passion in youth to take an engaging role in the future and become more responsible global citizens.
Attendants of THIMUN conferences aim to seek, through discussion, negotiation and debate, solutions to the various problems of the world: e.g., questions of human rights, protection of the environment, economic development, disarmament, the problems of youth and of refugees, critical issues of war and peace, as well as including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s). The young delegates, in seeking solutions to these problems, can learn to break away from narrow, national self-interest and develop true international cooperation.
The research and preparation require the adoption of views and attitudes other than their own. The involvement and interaction with so many other young people from around the world, all combine to give them a deep insight into the world’s problems and to make them aware of the causes of conflict between nations and leading them to a better understanding of interests and motivation of others.
Thus, the THIMUN Foundation, through its conferences and educational programs, attempts to fulfil the aims and goals set by the founders of the United Nations in the Preamble to the Charter of the United Nations:
…to practice tolerance and live together in peace with one another as good neighbours.
