For its 2nd Annual Conference, AIMUN is partnering with the African Union to mark the African Youth Day with a Model African Union Conference. The conference will be held between November 1st – 4th at the African Union Headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
The 2011 conference will simulate the African Union Structure as well as its rules and procedures closely. The conference will be the first continental level Model African Union.

It will also enable students the opportunity to interact and network with students from different cultures and backgrounds as well as further Article 26 (l) of the African Youth Charter, to “Promote patriotism towards and unity and cohesi.
