Register as a Chairperson for Sarajevo Model UN '18
Letter from the Secretary-General
Dear future Sarajevo Model UN participants,
it is my great pleasure to welcome you all on behalf of Sarajevo Model United Nation’s Secretariat.
This conference will take place from September 20-23 at Hotel Hills in Sarajevo and will bring you the opportunity of experiencing diplomacy and international affairs at first hand, playing the role of a United Nations Member State representative in any of our four committees (UNSC, UNHRC, UN WOMEN, GAC). Sarajevo Model UN offers an international atmosphere that gathers very different individuals to share their passion for international affairs and their aim of being the change that our future world needs.
In an incredibly complex and volatile world where globalism confronts nationalism, where peace is threatened by numerous political conflicts and values seem to disappear, the role of the youth is more important than ever: today’s students will be tomorrow’s leaders.
This Model UN will bring you the opportunity of learning interpersonal skills such as lobbying and negotiation, expressing and defending your ideas in a diplomatic manners and, the most important, the empathy you need to put yourself in others’ shoes. Hence, I do believe that our participation in Model United Nations contributes to make us different, to open our minds and it will help us to modify the history our generation.
A new generation is a change needed in the fragile world’s contemporary order and for this reason, we have decided to hold this year’s session under a common theme: the importance of youth and the promotion of their leadership through international conferences.
Therefore, if you are a curious, open-minded individual, eager to learn, to interchange ideas and, moreover, you aspire to be the change the international community needs, rather than a mere observer, Sarajevo Model UN is your place to be.
The path is taken, the decision of which side to take is yours.
Beatriz Ruiz de Cortázar Senra
