MESSAGE FROM SECRETARY-GENERAL, GIMUN 2018
Distinguished Advisors and Delegates,
It’s my utmost pleasure and honor to invite you to the Ninth Session of the Ghana International Model United Nations (GIMUN), Africa’s leading MUN. Next year’s conference would take place from the 3rd- 6th January, 2018 in Ghana’s premier University, University of Ghana, Legon.
The Ghana International Model United Nations is dedicated to raising a generation of future, world problem solvers, politicians, diplomats, and people of reputable standing in society and the world as a whole. Here at GIMUN, we have not only built a long standing reputation of excellence, but also shown a high level of commitment to continually raise the standard of MUN by the introduction of innovations that provide a new experience and adventure to all our prospective participants as we develop and unearth their potentials, careers and competence. This year, we have introduced the GIMUN Education Exchange Program (GEEP). After eight successful sessions, we are poised to deliver in the Ninth Session a much more thrilling and engaging experience for all participants.
The theme for next year “Transformation through Empowerment” for three days with aspiring diplomats across the continent and beyond, would see us engaged in dynamic, inclusive and well – informed debate directed at shaping our world to enhance quality and decent livelihood. The Secretariat together with our experienced Bureau of Committees and distinguished guests from the United Nations and foreign embassies would afford our delegates the opportunity to enjoy the intricacies of diplomacy. Regardless of your MUN experience, we have a unique approach to stimulate greater involvement and debate tailored to bring all delegates to an even field.
The previous conference saw many delegates in high school and tertiary institutions across Africa converging to make the world a better place and once again we are offering an opportunity for the youth of today to not only better their public speaking skills, their research skills, their ability to lobby and be diplomatic but also to take a step forward in creating resolutions to address the pertinent issues of this world. Enough human resources and logistics are being put in place to ensure that your stay throughout the duration of the conference is comfortable and conducive for debate, dialogue, negotiations and invigorating discussions
There would never be a dull moment at the Ninth Session of GIMUN as we have tabled an experience filled with a rich blend of learning, fun and socio-cultural events.
We will be happy to have you as part of this enterprise. I, together with all members of the Secretariat are excited to engage you in January 2018 as we strengthen and engage in discourse that transforms our world.
