Honourable prospective Directors, Delegates and Guests,
For the tenth time the Model United Nations Initiative Karlsruhe (MUNIKa) is inviting students from across the globe to what has become the largest MUN conference in south-west Germany: KaMUN – The Black Forest Summit 2019.
Model United Nations is an incredible way to unite internationally minded, young individuals with the broadest range of backgrounds in terms of their studies, the place they call home, visions and cultures. The fruits of bringing these future leaders together are more than just the sum of their individual strengths. You will represent one country in one of our four United Nations committees to work out based on consensus or majority vote.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Executive Committee (UNHCR) for example will work towards solutions for Refugees in Distress Rescue at Sea. A topic, which would have needed a resolution before Alan Kurdi and many more had to swap their hopes for their lives.
The Economic and Social Council will take on the Sustainable Development Goals with SDG 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy) and SDG 13 (Climate Action) in particular. It will be of no avail to consider only two SDGs as all 17 are closely linked and interconnected. Despite the challenges and different levels of development of nations the solutions must be multilateral and now.
The United Nations General Assembly First Committee is often referred to as Disarmament and International Security Committee or DISEC. In times where even developing countries entertain space programs while at the same time the failing INF treaty serves as witness for failure in disarmament talks, a discussion on Arming or preventing the very same of outer space offers room for progress.
The highest body in the United Nations framework is the Security Council. At KaMUN – The Black Forest Summit 2019 we will have two delegates represent one country together, so called double delegate. As the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland will have the presidency in the Security Council in November, it will be done accordingly at this conference. The topic ahead aims at improving the situation in Yemen, a conflict often overlooked in world politics.
Now it is up to you to register. For all inquiries we are very much looking forward to assisting you.
Where will you be on November 15th to 17th?
With kindest regards,
Secretary-General KaMUN – The Black Forest Summit 2019
