My dear and most esteemed participants of ZaMUN
The year 2020 is coming and so is the new Žilina Model United Nations 2020. Once again this grand colossus has woken up and our team full of teachers, students, chairs and many more began preparing with immense effort, endeavour and care yet another great experience for you – the participants.
We, the young generation, live in a time of great changes. Old habits of our mankind are not working anymore and the new and innovative ones are still far from us to implement and to get used to. It is the time of the environmental crisis where we decide if we either want clean water and air or our daily comfort rooted in the ideology of consumerism and materialism. It is the time where extremism is on the rise and we have to think again if we are ought to repeat our mistakes or we have learned already. It is the time of chaos and disinformation where truth is so hard to be distinguished from lies and it is the time of the great new and almost unbelievable technologies which bring us to the brink of new industrial revolution which will affect all of us forever.
How the humanity will cope with these difficult and complicated problems is also upon us – the young people. We, the youth, cannot keep our eyes closed, ignoring the world around us, because one day, which is not so far away from now, it will be our business and there would be no one else to resolve the situation for us, therefore we must be interested and we must CARE. By attending events of this type such as MUNs you also show that you care. You show that you want to know about what is happening, you want to talk about the problems and you want to think about their possible solutions. And that is why I am deeply thankful to all of you that are coming to the conference.
But do not worry, not everything on the MUN is just about politics, policies, resolutions and arguments, it is much much more. This week lasting event in our small but beautiful city of Žilina offers you many things. Learn about the culture, get to know the locals and experience our style of life, hang out with other delegates from all around the world from Finland to India, have lots and lots of fun and make new friendships with others attending the conference. You will not be disappointed.
It is a great honour to be a part of this amazing and wonderful project and I assure you that I and our team will do everything possible and impossible for you to have a great and unforgettable experience.
I cannot wait to meet you in April
Filled with drive and adoration
Secretary-General of ZaMUN 2020
