Athens, October 6, 2017
Dear MUN Directors, Advisors and Delegates,
As we begin the 2017-2018 school year we, the Pierce-ACG MUN team, send our best wishes to you for a safe and successful school year. It is our greatest privilege to welcome you to the 2nd annual session of the American College of Greece Model United Nations (ACGMUN) Conference, hosted by Pierce-ACG from March 16th to the 18th, 2018.
We are excited and pleased to announce our theme for this year’s conference:
Globalism. Stability. Equality.
In this time of international turbulence, we would like our delegates to focus on these vital UN goals of equality and stability in our global community. The issues on our Agenda reflect this emphasis, from human rights issues such as the right to sexual determination and protection from sexual assault, to improving living conditions of minority groups, to threats of war, including the unstable situation with ethnic and religious cleansing in Myanmar.
We are very excited to draw your attention to our new committee, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the issues of eliminating violence and crime in the Northern Triangle of Central America, prison reform and alternatives to imprisonment, and responding to the rise of new psychoactive substances.
We are especially pleased that our conference is to be held in Athens, not only a lively modern city but also a city well attuned to its ancient past as the birthplace of democracy.
Please note the deadlines: Secretariat Applications – Wednesday, November 1, 2017, Student Officer Applications: Wednesday, November 8, 2017, School Registration (Form I) and ICJ Applications for advocates and judges remain the same –Friday, December 15, 2017. You will find the Agenda, forms, and fees on our conference website: www.acgmun.gr. For more information, contact us at [email protected]
We look forward to hosting you at our conference and we assure you that ACGMUN 2018 will provide three days of challenging and fruitful debate within an enriching Model United Nations experience for all students involved
