- WORDS OF WELCOME -
Distinguished delegates, honourable chairs, fellow staff members,
I am proudly inviting you to the 19th iteration of Hamburg Model United Nations, happening from 30th November to 3rd December 2017 in the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg.
With HamMUN 2017 we would like to provide you with an excellent Model UN experience. We are offering a high academic standard, a broad variety of committees, beautiful venues and exciting social events at the world famous Reeperbahn. With HamMUN we want to equip our participants with the necessary skills to become actively involved in reforming and rethinking the United Nations as well as their domestic democratic systems. The skills learned in Model UN debates include critical thinking, tough negotiations, public speaking and accepting another one’s point of view.
We want to encourage you to use those skills to speak up and to stand up for the values of the United Nations and to become an active member of your global society. This is why we are hosting this year’s HamMUN under the motto “Speak Up, Stand Up – Be the Change”. With your help, we hope to make HamMUN 2017 a wonderful international experience and once again the largest university-level Model UN conference in Germany.
I am looking forward to warmly welcome you in Hamburg this November!
Erik Buhmann, Secretary-General of HamMUN 2017
