We Dare you to voice out your opinion when the majority remains voiceless. We Dare you to exploit your brilliant minds in the art of conflict resolution.

Sri Lanka Model United Nations (SLMUN) is the national MUN conference and Asia's largest student run conference. The Inaugural SLMUN held at the BMICH, in 2008, involving over 1000 students from around Sri Lanka and abroad, put MUN in a new paradigm in Sri Lanka. SLMUN is currently in preparation for its 8th session following the glamorous path of seven consecutive success stories. Our aim is to take MUN to all corners of Sri Lanka with nothing standing in the way of each and every school student getting the opportunity to experience the uniqueness of it, while making Sri Lanka an international centre for MUNers. Hundreds of students have already been put into the fold of diplomacy and negotiations, allowing them to become true leaders, through SLMUN.
At the 8th Session we want to revolutionize the thought process and attitudes of students to distance themselves from the conventional Asian risk averse behavior and take real action towards making real change in the future world that will belong to them, while internalizing international issues that no longer isolate anyone. We intend on directing the risk taking actions of change towards creating the policies of the future – policies that they as the future global citizens would enshrine within the public policy domain. It is not mere reform that SLMUN 2015 wants to advocate but complete paradigm shifts in public policy with particular attention on education and nothing is more revolutionary than the education system envisioned by the very victims of the woes of the existing one. Education is the primary answer to all the world's problems from extremist terrorism to overpopulation.
