Dear MUN Directors, Advisors and Delegates,
We are very pleased to invite you to the 3rd annual session of the American College of Greece Model United Nations (ACGMUN) Conference, hosted by Pierce-ACG from Friday, April 5th through Sunday, April 7th, 2019. We are excited and pleased to announce this year’s theme:
Technology and the Internet are an integral part of our daily lives and provide many positive uses from improved health care and medicine to easily available communication for all. Unfortunately, issues of privacy have become a major concern, whether through data mining and selling data for profit, the prominent role social media now plays in democratic elections, and the growth of crypto-currency and concerns over who controls its value, to name but a few.
ACGMUN is a three day conference conducted in English and open to secondary school students (ages 14-18).Our conference serves as a simulation of the United Nations and provides students the chance to stand for issues that matter in our volatile and troubling world today.Through participation in the conference, delegates increase their knowledge of diplomacy, develop their skills of critical analysis, practice public speaking and negotiation, and develop friendships beyond their community. The conference will have four General Assembly Committees (Disarmament and International Security, Social and Humanitarian, Special Political and Decolonization, and Legal), and six Specialized Committees, including the Security Council, ECOSOC, the World Health Organization, the Environmental Commission, the International Court of Justice and one to be announced.
Please note these important deadlines:
- Secretariat Applications: Friday, October 26, 2018
- Student Officer Applications: Friday, November 9, 2018
- School Registration (Form I): Friday, January 18, 2019
- ICJ Applications for advocates and judges: Friday, December 14, 2018
We look forward to hosting you at our conference and we assure you that ACGMUN 2019 will provide three days of challenging and fruitful debate within an enriching Model United Nations experience for all students involved. We are especially pleased that our conference is held in Athens, Greece not only a lively modern city but also a city well attuned to its ancient past as the birthplace of democracy.
On behalf of Pierce-ACG we send our wishes for a great summer and we look forward to seeing you at our conference.
