Message From the Secretariat

Welcome to the Tenth Annual Edition of Shanghai American School Pudong Model United Nations! SHASMUN X will be held online in January 2023. Our theme this year is The Sound Barrier.


The first SHASMUN was held in 2012 with the theme of Introducing Happiness, with over 160 delegates from schools in Shanghai attending. SHASMUN II - The Sun, The Moon, and the Truth - welcomed schools from Hong Kong and Taipei. SHASMUN III - Talkin' 'Bout My Generation - saw participation from schools ranging from Beijing to India, and introduced the ECOSOC committee. SHASMUN IV - The Ethics of Progress - introduced the General Assembly 3 Committee, and welcomed over 300 delegates. SHASMUN V - Won't Get Fooled Again and SHASMUN VI - The Slanted Mirror - introduced the Security Council 2. SHASMUN VII - Hear the Echo Chamber - added the Historical Security Council. SHASMUN VIII - The Complacency Crisis – foresaw debate in a veto-less Security Council 2. Due to COVID-19, SHASMUN IX - The Butterfly Effect- decided to go ‘-ito’, catering to SAS delegates in an in-house conference, and introduced the dual delegation Security Council.


We are excited to unveil SHASMUN X as the most engaging SHASMUN yet! With all that is transpiring in the world at this present moment, the SHASMUN X Secretariat re-affirms its commitment to hosting and delivering a conference that you have all come to expect of us.
