It is a matter of immense delight for me to welcome you all to the inaugural edition of Punjab Public School Model United Nations (PPSMUN).
Model United Nations, popularly known as MUN, is a simulation of the UN where the participating students assume the roles of ambassadors from different countries and debate on current affairs which directly impact the member states. At the PPSMUN, the delegates will represent their chosen countries and will simulate discussions on their specified agendas. They will get to know and understand the real global issues that the world faces today. Such a learning environment will pave the way for the participants familiarising themselves with global concerns and the working of the United Nations. All the delegates will attempt to resolve the regional as well as international issues in a powerfully engaging fashion with discussions, deliberations and negotiations.
With the theme of the conference “Ameliorating the world for posterity” focusing on the exigency to save the world, the time has come for all of us to realise that we need to save the slumping world order from terminating resources, from heinous and inhumane acts against our fellow human beings and to save the planet for the coming generations. This conference aims to resolve gargantuan and intolerable problems which require a diplomatic response as soon as possible. Time is short and we all need to work together to solve these issues. This conference will be a congregating place for global ideas of peace, security and prosperity.
We hope that the PPSMUN will serve as a convention for all participating delegates where they would perceive their talents that would further contribute towards their professional growth. As the leaders and diplomats of tomorrow unite at this conference, they would hone their skills as far as effective leadership, teamwork, debating, and negotiations are concerned.
I am confident this conference will provide a practical learning environment, the benefits of which will be significant in the journey of the participating students who aspire to become leaders of tomorrow to impact the society creditably.
I encourage all delegates to participate increasingly in the discussions in their respective committees. We aim to leave behind an everlasting legacy.
Looking forward to meet you guys!
