About the Organizing Committee

The “WorldMUN Spirit” of international cooperation, understanding, and friendship is the conference’s guiding principle. As such, each year’s WorldMUN Team – a partnership of Harvard students and Host students - commits to providing the best possible conference and pre-conference service to each of its delegates from around the world; promoting mutual respect and lasting friendships among its own team members; and maximizing the experience and learning for all those staffing and attending the conference. a way that promises a unique experience to its 2,000+ delegates from over 60 countries.

World Model United Nations 2012 Vancouver is a partnership between two undergraduate student-led teams from Harvard University and the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, Canada.  The Harvard Team plans and executes the conference's committee sessions, while the UBC-student based Vancouver Host Committee plans and operates conference events outside of committee sessions and organizes on-ground logistics.

The Vancouver Host Committee for the 21st World Model United Nations Conference was established on May 2, 2011.
