Dear delegates and Faculty advisors,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Marianopolis Model United Nations Conference 2019. Over the past few months, my incredible team of Secretariat and staff members have been working diligently to create the perfect delegate experience for the upcoming conference in February.

For our politically inclined delegates, consider our beginner General Assembly: the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), our United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) or perhaps our beginner Crisis, UNSC: South China Sea. Whichever you pick, delegates can be assured they will be discussing especially relevant topics for today’s world.

For our history buffs, the Meiji Era Specialized Agency takes you back to Imperial Japan under the rule of Emperor Meiji, while our Deceased Leaders Crisis will force you to use your imagination and to create a world in which Cleopatra and Winston Churchill discuss political matters. Interestingly, our Literary Committee, based on the novel and tv show “The Man in the High Castle”, transports you to a horrifying parallel universe in which the Nazis win the Second World War, while our Assembly of Space Giants makes you look into the future of space.

A new addition to MariMUN’s committee list this year is the International Press Forum, in which delegates will be able to get up from their seats and channel their inner journalist by reporting on the goings on of other committees. Finally, for our more advanced delegates, why not add edge and mystery into your life with our Ad Hoc? The only clue: “I’ll be back”…

Whether you’re the next world leader, looking for a way to challenge yourself or you just want to have a great time, MariMUN’s got something for you! Happy reading and I look forward to seeing you this February 9th and 10th!

All the best,

Amalia Mastroberardino

Secretary-General, MariMUN ’19
