10 Year Anniversary Conference: Dedicated to all of our delegates
It is our distinguished pleasure to invite you to the 10th edition of SiegMUN ! We are delighted to celebrate our 10 year anniversary with alumni delegates from previous years. SiegMUN 2019 will be accompanied by an alumni career panel, during which former delegates, chairs, and secretary generals shall share their professional experience with the delegates of today.
This year’s conference will provide you with the opportunity to participate in our United Nations Press Corps and our four exciting committees which we will be simulating in English: the African Union (AU), the Commission on Population and Development (CPD), United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP), and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
We believe, given the current diplomatic developments on the global stage, that Model United Nations conferences, particularly beginners’ conferences, such as SiegMUN, can teach valuable lessons by allowing us to experience different perspectives and to engage with others across a range of crucial topics which concern us all.
In 2019, we witnessed increased concern about a number of growing issues, such as environmental protection, responsible consumption and production, and the needs of various demographics, especially youth and the elderly, among others, all of which must be addressed as part of our global sustainable future. This year will also be remembered for the growing role of youth activists, such as Greta Thunberg, in raising awareness about the necessity for governments to do more to protect our planet. These important issues all comprise topics which we will discuss during SiegMUN 2019.
We hope that during SiegMUN 2019, we will collectively promote the United Nations’ spirit and values, as they are established in the UN Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Justice, Respect and Dignity for all, Equality, Cooperation, and Solidarity.
Participation in SiegMUN is a great and insightful way to understand the complexity of global problems. We hope that you will all significantly benefit from the skills and experiences gained from Model United Nations, and be able to personally grow by applying the lessons learned towards real world applications.
We are honoured to celebrate this years anniversary side by side with the current delegates and some MUN veterans, our alumni delegates. Moreover our 10th anniversary will be the perfect time to look back and to reflect upon the legacy of previous years. We greatly look forward to hearing from some old friends once again.
Dear Delegates, we encourage you all to take this opportunity to change perspectives, to broaden your horizons, and to foster dialogue. We encourage you to listen to and cooperate with one another.
We invite you all to join us for SiegMUN 2019 from November 13th to 16th!
