Welcome to ConnectMUN
Dear prospective sponsor teachers, delegates and parents,
I would like to welcome you to the 6th annual Connect Model United Nations. We are quite excited for this year’s conference and hope you are too. Having been involved with ConnectMUN for 6 years as a delegate, staff, and a secretariat member I am confident that this conference will be an experience you will recall fondly and eagerly anticipate every year.
This year we are excited to bring many great initiatives such as the International Press Corps (IPC), Home Government Communiqués and Workshops that will enhance the delegate experience. The IPC will simulate the effects of popular opinion in government policy while Home Government Communiqués help delegates with difficult positions or with questions on their own policy. Our Workshop project seeks to help delegates outside committee sessions with basic skills like opening speaking lists and writing proper resolutions. With these initiatives and our commitment to smaller committee rooms, delegate development and debate skill we hope you are as excited as we are for our conference.
Our initiatives for this year work to develop our theme: the changing face of international relations. With the rapid developments of science and technology over the previous decades that is set to continue for the foreseeable future, the world’s future leaders will need to understand the possibilities and implications of the these technologies. Ethical dilemmas that were once only intellectual repartees will soon be issues urgently requiring discussion by those with an understanding of both politics and the ethics of science. The line between scientific research and policy is breaking down and we hope to prepare our delegates for this future. Further, social media has also changed the game by allowing near instantaneous communication of massive amounts of information. Delegates will need to be able to shift through information to determine pertinent and accurate information while managing their public relations.
With this said, the secretariat and I ask for your attendance to ConnectMUN VI for a weekend of diplomacy, development and fun! If you have any further inquires please browse our website or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
