WELCOME TO THE 17TH EDITION OF NTUMUN!
Letter from the Secretary-General, NTUMUN 2023
Dear Delegates, Chairpersons, Faculty Advisors, and Distinguished Guests
On behalf of the Secretariat and the Organizing Committee, it is my distinct pleasure and honour to invite you to the 17th annual Nanyang Technological University Model United Nations Conference. This year, we are more than excited to present to you our first ever hybrid conference held from 17th to 19th March 2023.
Since our inception in 2006, NTUMUN has grown to be the largest and most prestigious model united nations conference in Singapore and across Southeast Asia. Two years ago, NTUMUN hosted its first virtual conference with the theme, “Normalis Novum” (The New Normal). Since then, our virtual conference has grown tremendously, hosting over 300 participants from over 30 different nationalities, giving youths from all over the world accessibility to a premier Model United Nations conference. With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted, we are thrilled to return to our flagship physical conference, albeit in a “new normal” way.
In line with this, NTUMUN 2023 introduces 8 physical councils and 5 virtual councils, inclusive of the International Press Corps. Through our General Assemblies, Economic and Social Councils and Regional Bodies, and Specialized Agencies, delegates will have access to a broad range of committee forms and topics.
In addition to our flagship conference, the NTUMUN secretariat is proud to launch Global Connect, a hybrid fireside chat series lined up to engage the youth in international discourse. At Global Connect, we host renowned Guest-of-Honours such as Foreign Service Officials, Diplomats, Professors, Ministers, Members of Parliament and other industrial experts to engage in dialogue on issues ranging from sustainability, mental health to regional security.
For any general queries, our team will be very happy to assist you at firstname.lastname@example.org. For sponsorships and business-related queries, feel free to reach out to our Business Development team at email@example.com. You can even email me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be delighted to provide further assistance!
Once again on behalf of the Secretariat and the Organizing Committee, thank you very much for your interest in NTUMUN 2023 and I look forward to welcoming you on 17th March 2023.
