Most Esteemed Guests, Distinguished Advisors and Honorable Participants,
It is my utmost pleasure and honor to welcome you to the third annual session of Oguzkaan Schools Junior Model United Nations Conference which will be taking place in Oguzkaan School from February 16th to 17th, 2019. Just like the previous one, our conference will host young delegates and provide them with the chance and experience to debate and lobby as well as develop their public speaking skills and give them self confidence. This year, we hope that all the participants will have their experiences fulfilled.
It is a great responsibility to be a part of this world, which is home to wonderful opportunities as well as alarming issues. At a time when border, social, and international conflicts are becoming increasingly frequent, preserving and improving connections have become a priority. No conflict can be regarded as domestic, since globalization has grown to such an extent that we are affected deeply by every incident regardless of its origins. Under these circumstances,‘Taking Responsibility’ is an important matter in understanding, evaluating and solving these problems. As the secretariat of OSJMUN 2019 we chose “Taking Responsibility” as the theme of this year’s conference in order to highlight its importance.
We are honored to present our General Assembly Committees which are; Disarmament Committee, Human Rights Committee, Political Committee, Environment Committee. In addition to our GA Committees, we offer our delegates the experience of attending the Special Committee. In all our committees, you will be facing different agenda items such as ‘Women’s Right and Gender Inequality’ in Human Rights Committee, ‘Public Health Issues and Overpopulation’ in Environment Committee, ‘Threats to International Peace and Security Caused by Cyber Warfare’ in Disarmament Committee, ‘Syrian Civil War’ in Political Committee.
Lastly, we trust our delegates and we believe you will learn a lot about the world, its problems and find efficient solutions. Oguzkaan Schools Junior Model United Nations is a conference that provides more than knowledge and skills development; it is an opportunity to create vivid memories and enjoy entertaining moments. Our staff of over 50 have been working tirelessly through September 2018 to ensure that your experience as a delegate at Oguzkaan Schools JMUN 2019 is incredible, both substantively and socially, and we truly hope that you will join us for a fantastic MUN experience.
