HELIMUN V Annual Session

The Helsinki International Model United Nations V Annual Session, 2005 Conference, focused on human rights. The conference consisted of General Assembly with 5 committees and Security Council, all with current items on their agenda.

Mr Joonas Sarvamaa was appointed the Secretary General.

The story of HELIMUN started in 2001 when a group of Kulosaari Upper Secondary School students participated in the Hague International Model United Nations (THIMUN). Two of these delegates, Ms. Aino Efraimsson and Ms. Milla Paalanen, got the idea of organising a MUN-conference to the 9th grade students at Kulosaari secondary School. The first MUN-conference, MINIMUN, was held in May 2001.

During the following three years the MUN-conference, now known as KUMUN, expanded. Besides Kulosaari Secondary School students also other schools were invited to participate in the conference. Delegates from International School of Helsinki, Espoo International and Riga Hanza School from Latvia were among those participating in KUMUN 2004.

In August 2004 the name of the conference was changed to Helsinki International Model United Nations (HELIMUN) to encourage also foreign schools to participate in the conference.
