History

Learn all about us from the very beginning until now.

  • 2012

    Humble beginnings.

    After having participated in several international MUN-experiences, Bart Sips, felt the need and decided to introduce the concept in Antwerp, which was thus far the only large student town that did not yet have a MUN. He accomplished his project with the help of student organisations EKA and CDS Antwerpen.

  • 2013

    A direct hit.

    With the help of the University of Antwerp, the Province of Antwerp and the Ministery of Foreign Affairs, the first edition was a fact. About 50 people joined the two days long simulation and word quickly spread about this new initiative.

  • 2013-2014

    The association.

    After the succesful first edition of Antwerp MUN, the value of the MUN was irreplaceable. Under the initiative of our former president and co-founder, Sina Asghari, along with by Toby Joshua Fischler and Thalia Wyns, the AntwerpMUN association was created and turned into a professional non-profit organisation (vzw). The organisation got new partners, most notably Antwerp Management School, and the amount of participants rose. A real success considering the strong competition with the World MUN that year.

  • 2014-2015

    The start of the mini-MUN.

    In addition to the main MUN-event, AntwerpMUN introduced a new initiative for high school students: the High School (or mini) MUN. During this smaller simulation, high school students' interest is roused in debate and negotiating and at the same time they get to know life at university.

  • 2015-2016

    Internationalisation and continued development.

    The organization had a strong and positive evolution. These evolutions consisted of more visibility, range wide pre-events, efficient communication. These improvements resulted in the largest edition of the MUN yet. AntwerpMUN became more acknowledged and became the biggest MUN in Belgium. It became an international player, with many participants from around the globe.

  • 2016-2017

    Lustrum year.

    Our edition of 2016-2017 was a special one. We organized our fifth edition! We made sure to celebrate in style with a classy galaball for all our delegates and their friends. The AntwerpMUN Team is ready for the upcoming five years until the next lustrum year.

  • 2017-2018

    Exploring and maintaining student-like relations.

    The organisation joins the assembly with student-like organisations, in order to create awareness of our movement among students, as well as developping a prosperous understanding with them. This year's MUN and its corresponding relaxing activities were embedded in a cozy and jovial atmosphere.

  • 2018-2019

    Succesfully broading horizons.

    The organisation is seeking more alliances with other organisations in order to provide a large spectrum of different events and build on new sustainable partnerships. It tries to attract the attention of students from more and other studies as well. The MUN will also consist of new committees and corresponding topics, accurately adapted to the interests of our new target groups.
