The Scenario is complete;
The preparations have been made;
The venerable University Hall awaits;
All that is left is for You to apply to UMUN 2016!
On the 21st of January, the UMUN 2016 simulation will be opening with a thoroughly prepared introduction to the topics and the Rules of Procedures (ROPs), which are specially crafted to suit each individual Committee.
The Scenario, Stepping Forward – Reaching Sustainability Through Partnership, revolves around the implementation of the decisions reached in the Addid Ababa Action Agenda, the ”Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” UN agenda, and the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21), all extremely important political happenings which took place in 2015.
Taking on the role of a delegate, you’ll be attending one of three Committees: The Commission on the Status of Women, The United Nations’ Environment Assembly, or The Council of the European Union. Each Committee will be thoroughly discussing three topics each, outlined on the UMUN 2106 website, at Committees.
As UMUN aims to establish itself as one of the most coveted and
academically authentic recurring simulations, and as such extensive research
has been carried out to ensure that the topics are thoroughly fleshed out and
that the formalia of the simulation is an accurate representation of the
multilateral institutions being simulated.
To this end, the Chairs’ team was recruited as part of the Project Group, and have been hard at work with the Scenario for months, with parts of the team recently having traveled to Paris to attend the COP21 negotiations. Furthermore, changes have been made to the structure of the simulation, based on advice from the United Nations’ Department of Public Information and its’ UN4MUN workshop.
In this last stretch of time leading up to the commement of UMUN 2016, close attention will be paid to all efforts to implement the agreed upon goals, such that the ROPs will be as accurately reflecting the reality of the world as possible.
All that remains is Your application – so what are you waiting for? Join us at the end of January for one of the most authentic MUNs you’ll ever experience, with unforgettable social events in a city brimming with energy and history, and explore all the nooks and crannies of implementation negotiation!
