To whom it may concern,

We hope this letter finds you well.

NISMUNC, with an impressive 11-year history, has firmly established itself as one of Malaysia's leading Model United Nations conferences. We aim to provide a platform for delegates across a range of expertise, from beginner delegates to experienced delegates, to develop their understanding of international affairs, diplomacy and leadership skills through active debates. 

As advocates for global citizenship and diplomacy education, we are committed to providing an enriching and educational experience for our delegates. This year’s chosen theme, '#cha11engedby_,' reflects the core spirit of NISMUNC. The agendas presented have been curated with care by our Secretariat Team to address the most relevant and pressing issues we face in this modern day. The skills attained, refined and developed through NISMUNC 2024 will undoubtedly become valuable assets as you navigate the challenges of the future. The following topics were chosen to inspire active and heated debates, encouraging you to delve into the complexities of global affairs.
