It gives me great pleasure to welcome all of you to the 10th Annual Junior Model United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization conference held at Bilkent Laboratory and International School in Ankara. The event will be between Friday February 21st to Sunday February 23rd, 2020.
JMUNESCO is a first-timer friendly conference that provides an environment in which middle and high school students are given a platform to discuss and debate issues that vex our world today and to come up with sustainable solutions. All students taking part in the conference evolve into more productive members of society and are becoming more solution oriented and innovative through the experiences that they acquire in the duration of these highly eye-opening three days. Our main goal is to help students become much more mindful of different conflicts around the world, heighten their abilities to mediate when in the midst of a disagreement, and master the art of negotiation and compromise.
This years theme, “Today for Tomorrow”, emphasizes the significance of taking action. In a world in which a single school strike can lead to a hundred others, a speech can broaden the horizons of thousands, and a teenager can influence millions, it is important to realize the impact of our actions and decisions on the future. We, as the presidents, diplomats, teachers, doctors and engineers of tomorrow, know the significance of our actions on the creation of the infrastructure of the future.
We are working hard to provide all participants with a momentous experience that will stay with them for many years to come. On the behalf of the Organizing Team, I welcome you to the 10th annual session of JMUNESCO.
Director General of JMUNESCO’20
