Of course! LisboMUN’s goal is to promote and establish a MUN culture in Portugal. If you do not know how to do MUN, come by our events, and we will teach you, and give you a space to practice among with other MUNers.
- By talking directly with us at one of our events (or if you find us around in your uni!);
- Through this form.
Please note that in order for you to be a member, there is a 3€ fee (per semester).
Yes, indeed! LisboMUN being an association, if you are a member of LisboMUN that just means you are an associate and can enjoy the perks of being a member. If you are part of the LisboMUN team, that means you have a position in the association and help us achieve our mission and organize our events.
Everyone that is part of the LisboMUN team is also a member of the association, but not all members have to be part of the LisboMUN team.
Both allow you to be involved with LisboMUN, but in different ways. Click here for more information on becoming a member and click here for joining the LisboMUN Team.
Being a non-profit association for young people, you do not need to be a student in order to be part of the LisboMUN team. Legally, we have to have 75% of the team under 30 years old.
However, the majority of the team is made of, and the applications come from, students and our activities and mission is to promote MUN in Portugal among mainly students.

The mission and aim of LisboMUN is to promote MUN in Portugal, not only is Lisbon.
However, being a recently established association, at the moment most of the positions require you to live/study in Lisbon during the academic year. We are working towards an Outreach Program which will allow us to connect and work with others in all of Portugal.
You are encouraged to check out the requirements of the positions here. If you have any question, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I want to be a part of the LisboMUN Team. Can I apply to more than one position?
Yes, you can! If you do, please clearly state your preference in the body of the e-mail, since you can only have one position in the Team, unless in very special circumstances. For more information, please click here.
What it is like to be in the LisboMUN Team? Does it require a lot of availability?
It depends on the position. For example, the availability and commitment required of the Secretary-General of the MUN Conferences is higher than an associate which will be in the Department of Communications. However, it is expected from all associates inthe LisboMUN Team to have weekly meetings, depending on the position you are applying to and if they are necessary considering the time of the year (indeed, we take into account the students’ exams seasons). Usually, Directors and members of the Board will have to have a higher availability and commitment to work for LisboMUN, but we can assure you, being a student-run association, the workload would never hinder your studies.
One of LisboMUN’s goals is to organise an international MUN Conference, in Lisbon. Because we are a new association we will not organise an international MUN this year, but we are planning on holding its first edition in 2018. Want to know when the registrations will be open?
