RIIMUN has been India’s premier International Model UN for a number of years now.
The conference was first held in 1999 and holds the distinction of being India’s first college level MUN conference.
The conference is being hosted by the Rotary Club of Pune North East.
The conference attracts some of the best young debating talents, who don the role of United Nations delegates and discuss global issues of great relevance.
The aim is to create international awareness among the youth and expose them to the procedures and working of the United Nations to resolve pertinent global issues.
We also aim to educate participants about civics, effective communication, globalization and multilateral diplomacy in a bid to create world leaders.
