Welcome to the inaugural edition of the Youth Online Universal Model United Nations (YOUMUN), a conference created to inspire you to follow your dreams, which shall take place virtually from the 10th to the 12th of September 2021. YOUMUN was founded to encourage you to believe in yourself, despite all hardships you may encounter when striving to keep hold of your progress in achieving your aspirations. At the heart of our aims is the endeavor to convince you that the greatest abyss between where you stand and where you wish to be is the story you tell yourself of why you cannot achieve them. As a need-blind event, the conference seeks to provide a more egalitarian educational experience for high school students from all the six inhabited continents in the world. YOUMUN will entertain a total of 8 committees, these being: the Human Rights Council, the Political Committee, the Security Council, the Historical Security Council, the UN Committee on Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, the Social Media Summit, the Trial of Charles Manson and the Historical Decolonization Committee. By featuring a weekend of prolific and reasoned debate, lectures by specialists, workshops and much more, YOUMUN fosters youth protagonism, contributing to pupils' positive character development and giving rise to more empathetic and discerning leaders of tomorrow. Delegate registration is now open! For more information on how to register, please visit our official website or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In all, we hope you can make the most from this experience, by exploring the world of diplomacy, meeting people from diverse backgrounds, and creating cherished memories. See you all in August!
