Welcome to ESMUN 2020,
Esteemed Prospective Participants,
On behalf of ESMUN Family, it is my pleasure and privilege to welcome you all to the second edition of Eskişehir Model United Nations Conference, ESMUN. My name is Zeynep Öykü Kalkan and it is my honor to serve you as the Secretary-General of ESMUN which is to be held in one of the most vigorous, culturally and historically rich, lively cities of Turkey.
In its second year, ESMUN will host wide range of committees for both junior and senior participants and focus on a variety of topics. While our junior delegates will discuss disease control and prevention in humanitarian emergencies in WHO, protecting ecosystems and biodiversity in UNEP, threats of social media usage on protecting the rights of children in UNHRC and increasing youth leadership and participation in UNDP; senior participants will focus on cybercrime and terrorism in UNODC, right to privacy and regulating surveillance technology in OHCHR, empowering youth and women as agents of peacekeeping and peacebuilding in SPECPOL. We also host a special committee on Vietnamese War!
GO Academy Society have been working diligently to ensure that ESMUN will be an enriching and rewarding MUN experience. A group of experienced MUN delegates as well as successful and exemplary individuals well versed in the topics at hand will chair and monitor our committees. I have full faith in each and every one of our Under-Secretary-Generals, Academic Assistants and Committee Board Members to improve your academic skills and guide you towards fruitful debates. My lovely and beautiful friend İlkay Dindar will be in the position of Director General and under her leadership, our amazing Organization Team will present you the best environment to ensure a spirit of diplomacy. We hope that you will leave ESMUN with not only enhanced debating, public speaking, analyzing, academic writing and diplomacy skills, but also with unforgettable memories, and lots of new friends.
In case of any questions, do not hesitate to contact us. We would be glad to help with you. On behalf of the ESMUN Family and GO-Academy Society, thank you for your time and consideration.
We look forward to seeing you!
Zeynep Öykü Kalkan
