Dear Future Delegates,
The global order is constantly changing and shifting as power moves from one actor to another. We see it every day when we read the news and hear about growing global issues affecting people’s day to day life. I always think of myself to be lucky that I am able to live in an area of that world that is not directly impacted by the conflicts caused by wars, climate change, etc. But that does not change the fact that we are living in a world where global issues are increasing in their demand for attention. We are young with a lot of potential awaiting us, but that does not mean that we are powerless.
MUN simulations might seem like they do not impact the world in anyway, but I truly believe that it is the step towards a future where some of us will be making such decisions that we see in the news. Decisions that will impact the rest of the world in profound ways. As a delegate, you will be simulating that and learning how these decisions can be challenging and sometimes frustrating to reach any sort of consensus that will make any difference. But I truly believe that it is in these skills learned from MUN that we can begin to understand why compromise, cooperation and empathy is needed more now than ever.
This is why I am so grateful to be the Secretary General of BISMUN2019. It is a conference that holds a special place in my heart; I am excited to be able to build on last year’s edition and make it, if I daresay, even better. We have only started the preparations, but I am dedicated to working hard to make sure that the conference is one that each and every one of you enjoy and remember. For me, the most important aspect is that you, as delegates, have a positive experience that you learned from. For you to be able to debate and to learn from the experience while enjoying yourselves to the fullest. And anyone who knows me, knows that my motto in life is to work hard and to party hard.
So I am truly dedicated to making sure that the academics are at a very high level because it is, in my opinion, a crucial aspect of the conference. As well as ultimately ensure that you have the best experience at BISMUN2019. I truly hope to see you at the conference from March 27th 2019 to April 1st 2019 and look forward to meeting each and every one of you!
