TIS Hosts First TIANMUN Conference

November, 2013

The first TIANMUN (Tianjin Model United Nations) Conference was held at Tianjin International School (TIS) on 25-26 October. TIANMUN welcomed more than 100 delegates from five of Tianjin’s international schools, including Tianjin International School (TIS), Wellington College International Tianjin, TEDA International School, Tianjin Homeschool Group and Tianjin REGO International School.

The idea of TIANMUN started when Mr Kimmel, TIS MUN Director, and a homeschool parent discussed starting a small conference for homeschool students, so they could prepare for real conferences. After a few talks, Mr. Kimmel and the parent decided to open this “small conference” to other Tianjin schools. And that is when TIANMUN was created!

The first TIANMUN wasn’t as intense as other bigger conferences. However, both the student officers and the directors believe that the experience will help these young delegates understand what MUN conferences are like before they debate with other experienced delegates at larger conferences. TIANMUN offered new delegates an opportunity to learn MUN conference protocol, lobby to write better resolutions and to grow in confidence by taking up the role of main submitter for various topics.  Not only that, this conference helped participants learn to debate more effectively by making more striking POIs - Points of Information.
