PANAMUN is the oldest and largest student-led Model United Nations conference in Central America. This THIMUN-affiliated conference is a product of committed global youth wishing to engage in civil society and a timeless cradle for the nurturing of global democracy.
PANAMUN happens in late October in commemoration of the United Nations Day celebrated on October 24. During the three days of the conference, students from all over the world come together at the International School of Panama and take the roles of countries represented in the United Nations to debate current world issues.
