Providing support to the humanitarian crises of today, while engaging students in world politics to prevent the humanitarian crises of the future.
What is Hinsdale MUN (H-MUN)?
- A charitable Model United Nations conference that is based in the Hinsdale area
- The topic brings awareness to a crisis in the world and ALL net proceeds are donated to a relevant UN Agency
- H-MUN is the best way for prospective MUN members to prepare for tryouts as well as a way for skilled delegates to gain more experience over the summer
Our goal and vision
Delegates can prep and prep for their first Model United Nations conference, but nothing will prepare you for the actual experience. Both Ammar and Zamaan's first Model UN conference found them both extremely excited and motivated, but they were initially very confused about how MUN works. It is almost impossible to have a full understanding of MUN without the experience of a conference. Both definitely agree that nothing prepares delegates as well as the actual experience. Ammar and Zamaan have designed a conference that will teach new delegates the skills they need if they want to join their school's Model UN club, attend a conference of their own, or decide if they are interested in MUN. However, this model also allows experienced delegates to attend as well and showcase their skills as well, with specific committees driven towards each experience level.
Who founded H-MUN?
Ammar Hussain and Zamaan Qureshi are seniors at Hinsdale Central High School. As part of the HCHS MUN team, in addition to attending conferences as individuals, both have won various prestigious awards. Ammar and Zamaan have attended a combined 20+ conferences. Ammar and Zamaan are highly experienced delegates who are eager to pass on their skills.
H-MUN is an all-around educational experience, not solely in the Model UN field. H-MUN, through the topic, allows delegates to educate themselves on a very relevant and important issue facing the world today; for H-MUN II the chosen topic is the Yemen Crisis. At H-MUN, ALL net proceeds go to a relevant UN Agency. This year that will be OCHA (UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian affairs). By raising awareness for and providing funds for a major crisis, H-MUN can play its part in giving back.
