If there’s anything to describe which conference is the best in my opinion, it is surely OstseeMUN 2015 which was held on October 5th - 9th 2015 in Flensburg, Germany - Sonderborg, Denmark. Not only it became the first MUN conference for me, but it also has successfully marked my version of what MUN conference should be. I started, surely, the conference with nervousness and every things related to first-time experience.
However, fortunately for me, the universe picked the right start, OstseeMUN 2015. Thus, I can learnt and experienced the best.
There are 4 things that made me picked OstseeMUN 2015 as the best conference. Not in alphabetical order.
1. Free bus transportation during the event
Once I know OstseeMUN 2015 provided free bus
transportation for us delegates, I was totally thankful because this facility
was so helpful. It saved my money and made everything’s easy. It also shows a
great example of how should the cooperation between a youth event and
local government be formed.
2. Lunch + mineral water included
In every occasion, food and water must always be there for us, living things. That’s why included-conference-fee lunch package with coupons and mineral bottled water (don’t forget fresh tap water is almost everywhere in Flensburg!) are vital and helpful, especially after having such tiring debate sessions. Cafe’s location is also near the council room so the access to get food and drink varieties is easy to reach. The cafe also functioned for a short getaway after having such heated dialogues.
3. Dynamic committee
International Olympic Committee, the committee I
took on OstseeMUN 2015, changed every skepticisms I had about MUN. The chairs
and the experienced delegates encouraged the shy delegates (including me) to
talk and the delegates are totally searching for the right solution to the
committee. I had so much fun and lots of useful thing to learn!
4. Cross-border opportunity!
Even in short time, experiencing a conference in two countries (Germany - Denmark), surely broadens our knowledge and experience in a different country! This is truly a great innovation and I'm absolutely thankful to be a part of this opportunity.
Having such great memories and experiences always intrigue me to explore more and more in MUN world. That's why I'm very delighted when I knew I got the opportunity to chair. I want to apply what I have learnt in my previous MUNs and also make an amazing experience!
