About WebMUn 2017
WebMUN 2017 will be the fourth edition of Webster University's MUN Conference. Located in Vienna's historic 2nd district, this conference will sure be a great experience and learning opportunity for all delegates.
Last year's conference consisted of 8 interconnected committees:
United Nations Security Council
Diplomatic Corps (non-assigned diplomats)
THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS: 17 GOALS TO TRANSFORM OUR WORLD
“Governments, businesses and civil society together with the United Nations have started to mobilize efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Agenda by 2030. Universal, inclusive and indivisible, the Agenda calls for action by all countries to improve the lives of people everywhere.”
The Sustainable Development Goals are not only for the planet, but also for people. Therefore, WebMUN would like to create more awareness about the goals.
The main theme of the agenda are people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnership. Delegates will be faced with the task of battling current social and economic issues, environmental issues, energy, and tackling security issues, such as terrorism and nuclear weapons and other peace threating problems.
Students are to research extensively prior to the conference, so that once they have arrived in Vienna, they can go about resolving the topic at hand.
The set-up of the committees has been designed so that the most important stakeholders, both importers and exporters, are represented.
In 2014, WebMUN invented the interconnectivity system, and we will make it even better this year. The composition of countries in the committees is similar, thus a country is represented in several committees. The delegates representing these countries will then meet to discuss and co-ordinate their efforts and policies.
At WebMUN 2017 we are happy to once again have the Diplomatic Corps committee, aimed at making the interconnectivity aspect of the conference even more efficient and exciting. The diplomatic corps committee will consist of non-assigned diplomats for the most important countries.They will not be assigned to one of the other committees, but rather coordinate their country's efforts in all the various committees.
For example, the U.S. diplomat will be responsible for coordinating the action between the the French Ambassador in the Security Council, the French Delegate in the European Council and the French Representative in NATO.
