Buenos Aires. Brasilia. Natal. Lima. … Your City!
HNMUN-LA stands apart from other model UN conferences by immersing delegates in the culture and character of the host city. Talented and dedicated host teams have been essential in making past sessions of HNMUN Latin America an incredible experience. We are currently seeking comprehensive, engaging, and feasible proposals for the next Host Team of HNMUN Latin America. If you want to bring the HNMUN-LA spirit to your city, please read through the information below.
Hosting HNMUN-LA is a thrilling opportunity as well as a substantial commitment of time and responsibility. Should a host team be selected, then between March 2015 and January 2016, the host team will collaborate closely with the Harvard team to plan all aspects of the conference. By combining your creativity and local knowledge with Harvard’s sixty years of experience running model UN conferences, we would together create a spectacular and fresh edition of HNMUN-LA for hundreds of delegates from around the world.
Bids for HNMUN-LA 2015 are DUE: 20 March 2015, 11:59 PM EST.
