Model United Nations, also by its abbreviation ‘MUN’, is an exceptional activity in which student participants imitate the real-world UN deliberations. Each delegate is assigned a country within a UN Committee or an international organisation and has to represent it in compliance with its domestic and foreign policy. In the process of debates in the committee, the delegates are to produce a resolution in which a solution to the problems described in the committee’s topic is included. MUN conferences are organised by high schools and colleges all around the world, with the biggest conferences welcoming over 4000 delegates. Participation in such an event involves conducting substantial research on international affairs, polishing one’s public speaking, debating, and writing skills, as well as honing one’s critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities. Thousands of students from different schools visit various countries every year in order to take part in MUN conferences all around the world, being provided with one-of-a-kind and life-changing experiences, and so we encourage you to join them.
Distinguished Delegates and all those wishing to take part in Tricity Model United Nations!
On behalf of the whole Secretariat, it is my greatest pleasure to be able to invite you to the 8th annual session of the Tricity Model United Nations conference. The session will be held on the 21st-23rd of March 2019, in Gdansk, Gdynia and Sopot.
The theme of TriMUN 2019 is “Building a Civil Society Through Education”. In 1999 Kofi Annan, the former Secretary General of the United Nations said ”The United Nations once dealt with governments. By now, we know that peace and prosperity cannot be achieved without partnerships involving governments, international organizations, the business community, and civil society. In today’s world we depend on each other. ” In over half of the United Nations member countries the civic space is either repressed or non-existent. The goal of this year’s Tricity Model United Nations is to educate delegates on the importance of active participation in the civil society of their communities, cities and countries. The Secretariat also aims at rising the awareness of delegates on how we can shape a more robust future of our world. This can only be achieved through the promotion of education, where cooperation, dialogue and responsibility are of outmost importance, which is exactly what we do during Model United Nations Conferences. The issue of an active and knowledgeable civil society is with no doubt something that we, as young Poles, must address.
The Secretariat of TriMUN 2019 is doing their utmost to present the honourable delegates with a memorable, enriching, and educational experience, by organizing a conference of highest quality. With delight, we look forward to welcoming you in beautiful Tricity and ensuring that your decision to participate in Tricity Model United Nations 2019 was a good one.
Hopeful to meet you in March 2019,
