Our Programs


Sarajevo Model UN Conference

This conference is a place of vertical exchange of knowledge and ideas between experienced members of the academia acting on the world stage, decision-makers and perspective youth interested in gaining further insight in the sphere of international diplomacy.

Western Balkans Youth Cooperation Platform

The main aim of the platform is to offer organisations - youth organizations, CSO-s, informal movements, groups, or young individuals - targeting youngsters from the Western Balkans, a resource center where to find partners for joint activities, exchange initiatives, youth projects, discuss cooperation ideas, build up joint activities, get advice, and implement those projects together. 


Youth Delegate

Initiative and advocacy to establish UN Youth Delegate Program of Bosnia and Herzegovina. This program will be coordinated with relevant national authorities and include selecting, training, preparing and accrediting Youth Delegate(s) to represent the youth of Bosnia and Herzegovina at the United Nations General Assembly and the CSosD.



“Excellent is a word that best describes the Sarajevo Model UN. This MUN was by far the best MUN I ever participated in. It was rich in diversity, it had very respectful, social and fun people, and the sessions were informative, practical, organized, and very engaging. I took part in the UN Women committee as a delegate representing Zambia and I must say the myriad of topics deliberated during the sessions were of relevance to both the male and female gender in the current sophisticated world, and to my PhD research where I focus on the relevance of entrepreneurship education in addressing the unemployment problem among youth and women. I encourage other young people to partake in the future Sarajevo MUN's as this is a platform for them to not only have an experience of the UN practices but to also network, make new friends and realize their hidden potential."


Mathias Wafula, Kenya

“Sarajevo Model UN was a conference organized to a tee. Not only it took place at a beautiful venue, but organizers also provided it with the highest quality by inviting notable guest speakers. The event met all my expectations, which were somewhat high, as it was not my first time in the city of Sarajevo. The Organizers formed a team of hospitable, devoted and helpful individuals. Food was obviously incredible, and social events made it a flawless mash-up."


Anna Bratek, Poland
