What is GIMUN?
Welcome to UNO – You know?!, GIMUN’s blog
The Geneva International Model United Nations (GIMUN) is a Geneva based Non Governmental Organization in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations. Run entirely by students, its aim is to promote the ideals and principles of the United Nations by giving students a chance to participate in educative events.
GIMUN is intended to serve as a permanent platform on which young people could discuss international affairs, the role of the United Nations and its values. An annual conference, debates, study trips and the creation of a MUN society which meets weekly are some of GIMUN’s main projects. UNO-You know?! also started as an online journal integrated in GIMUN’s website.
Since 2012 when it first appeared, UNO-You know?! has seen some changes. Today the blog has a separate website. Half of the editorial staff and the contributors are international students based outside Switzerland, although we still keep a strong presence in Geneva. More information about the team is available under “Our Team” tab.
If you would like to keep track of the blog’s publications, sign up to receive notifications for new posts. Finally, if you would like to become a contributor to UNO-You know?!, let us know by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We wish you pleasant reading!
