BaLMUN would like to announce the 10th Banja Luka International MUN conference to be held in Banja Luka from 21st to 23rd April of 2023
We are overjoyed and thrilled to write to you regarding the 10 th Banja Luka International MUN conference, which will take place in Banja Luka from 21 st to 23 rd of April.
Albert Einstein once said: “We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them”. Since the first part of Einstein’s claim – the existence of a problem, is already fulfilled in the world we live in, we are offered a chance to have the second part of it fulfilled, which is to gain a higher level of thinking in order to create the solution. Namely, BaLMUN conference is a perfect opportunity for anyone willing to do so.
Firstly, since we are, as any other generation before us, living in the time that is faced with great problems, every time is a perfect time to discuss important questions, and Banja Luka just might be the perfect place to do so. All of that makes BaLMUN an immaculate opportunity to try modestly to be great citizens of and to the world. Therefore, this event will fulfill its role if it learns us to think courageously enough like no one is listening, speak boldly enough like everyone is, and most importantly, listen carefully enough even when no one else does.
Secondly, our hope is that anyone who comes under the sky of Banja Luka will be left feeling over the moon. As hosts, we will make sure you feel like home, since that is what our town truly offers to anyone who visits it. We can also promise, we will send you back home with great stories of our history resting in your thoughts, precious talks with the local people playing in your heart and amazing dishes of ours forever staying in the memory of yours!
We are sending you the kindest regards and lots of love, and we are looking forward to seeing you in April! And do not ever forget that, every time and every place is a perfect one for the beginning and the creation of peace, righteousness and fruitful debate. Let’s make the peace-loving voice louder than any destruction-causing ignorance. Let’s bring the future home!

Uni BaLMUN Welcome letter
Esteemed chairs and colleagues,
Dear guests and friends,
It is with great honor and pleasure that we welcome you to the 10th iteration of BaLMUN as this year's Secretary and Under Secretary Generals of the first University level BaLMUN Conference. Let’s celebrate this amazing jubilee together! Organized with deep love and passion, over the past ten years Banja Luka Model United Nations has become one of the largest MUN conferences in the Balkans and the pride of our city and our country. This year, in honor of our 10 year anniversary we decided to expand our conference to the university level and organize it with our fellow BaLMUN alumni who are currently obtaining bachelor and master studies. University BaLMUN has prepared two committees for all the university students from our country and abroad — Security Council and Economics and Finance Committee.
BaLMUN is something we take enormous pride in, and with the vision to expand that feeling we are now inviting all the university level students to join us on our journey. Living in the world that is dedicated to trying to solve the most uncertain circumstances so far, where every, even the smallest decision of any competent body, even a seemingly insignificant individual, forever changes thousands, if not millions of human lives, inspires us to keep being persistent. Above the everyday problems we all face in this earthly life, today we witness many world problems that reach beyond anything we could have imagined. BaLMUN is here to help us come up with effective solutions to combat a number of these issues, but also to build you into leaders, creators of the future, into strong people with developed critical thinking. We are glad we can gather in Banja Luka once again, this time as university students and in a completely different phase of our lives to relive the memories we made throughout our high school years and show that we are more motivated than ever with an indestructible will to change our world for the better! We promise you friendships, support and new knowledge that will aid you on your path towards becoming better citizens of the world. We believe in critical thinking, quality debate and discussion, as well as in the power that lurks in each young woman and man. With desire, strength and effort, we indeed can influence the world, propose ideas and be incorporated in the problem solving process. Therefore, I encourage you to stay persistent and conquer whatever is thrown before you!

Maja Macura, Under Secretary General
