Entrepreneurship and innovations are overruling the
world right now. However, having a good idea doesn’t necessarily mean that it
will be turned into reality. Nikola Tesla had sketches and plans for
constructing electric vehicles, but we see Enol Musk’s company investing in
this idea now. Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos are competing in business that is
yet to be built around travelling to space. All these ideas are on their path
of implementation, but when it comes to dreamers in world affairs and politics,
we are lacking big ideas.
Comparison between of the idea behind the concept of ‘a dreamer’ is slightly different in sciences than in humanities. Upon some major discover, scientist’s idea is being implemented if the plan is interesting and potentially profitable. On the other side, if you believe that you are smart and have some social innovations, you may struggle a bit more before you are able to accomplish what you planned. Politics are about discussion, and it’s not important whether or not you have an opinion, but whether or not you can fight for it. This holds true for Model of the United Nations as well. MUNs are considered a special type of educational tool that is supposed to develop people’s speaking skills, as well as tackle ignorance. The second one is even more important because of the conflicts related to ethnocentricity, term that describes a concept in which one nation considers that its culture, traditions and lifestyles are more important than others. Future MUN conferences will start dealing with issues of society that are connected to racism, sexism and other issues present in our society.
Future MUN delegates will have responsibility of educators as well. While at the conferences, the participants will be exposed to the concepts created by new innovative people at the conferences. Through this, MUN becomes an important educational factor on a smaller scale, reaching broader group of people.
Finally, as the world is fighting against inequality in every single aspect of our life, MUN will need to adapt. This means that MUN will require a better organized financial support team which will make the conferences more accessible to people of all socio-economics backgrounds. This way, MUNers will have a better image or the real world, which will minimize possible false assumptions about the society.
MUNs transform as the world changes, as a consequence of this conferences are becoming more and more concerned about the topics that are discussed, trying to answer contemporary dilemmas and challenges, as well as work as an educator and the voice of every person. In order to achieve these goals, MUNers….what to say… keep dreaming.
