Welcome Letter From Secretary General
Dear Distinguished Delegates, Academic Team, Observers and Guests,
I am honored to present to you the fifth annual session of 60th Year Anatolian High School Model United Nations conference.
Time flies fast and the speed of our world is changing by accelerating. Consider the world that existed only when we went back forty years. The Cold War was going on, the nuclear apocalypse was at our doorstep, the history of humanity, which had not yet been in Göbeklitepe, had not been rewritten. Humanity has changed a lot in the past forty years. Our cultures, our lives have become unpredictably different. The pace of the progress of our technology has been increased.
Our country has also changed and changed in the last forty years. There are big differences even between us and people that was born ten years before us. We are the first children of the new, digital world. We were born with the internet, and now we are growing up with different technologies. We can access millions of pages of data in seconds. Globalization has engulfed the entire planet. The era of closure and singularity is over. This is the age when humanity will build its collective future, because now the age of loneliness is over and humanity has set out to advance to the final stage. There will certainly be great obstacles in front of us on this path, but as members of a very large human family, we will overcome these obstacles with our collective struggle, I am sure of that.
Now we are holding this conference over and over again. I am in the rightful pride and joy of organizing this conference for the fifth time. We have seen many difficulties, we have suffered. It has not been easy to come to these days, but now we are here, we are all together.
The world is embarking on a final fight. Our world is once again fighting for survival. This war, I hope, will end in favor of humanity. As I said before, we are members of a very large human family, we see the sun that will rise at the end of this dark road. When the time comes, humanity will win.
My words get too long sometimes, but it's hard to finish. We are the world's last hope.
This conference exists to train future leaders. Each delegate of this conference is a future diplomat, minister and parliamentarian.
At this conference, we will talk about the economic freedom of women in UNWOMEN, making education accessible in developing countries in ECOSOC, the rising debt crisis in the world at the IMF, and the 2nd Libyan Civil War in SPECPOL. We will solve the problems of the World Cup in FIFA, and we will witness the discussions of the world's great powers in the G20. At NATO, we will discuss the rising tension in Asia-Pacific, shape the future of the Arctic at UNSC, and discuss transparency of states' armament at DISEC. And now, as we approach the end, we will determine the new destiny of Germany in our JCC committee, we will share Africa in our Special GA committee, and finally we will witness the establishment of Turkey and the revolutions in our TBMM committee.
I look forward to see you at our conference on January 23-24-25-26. As the last representative of this tradition that has been going on for years, there is an indescribable happiness inside me.
As the 60MUN family and community, we will be honored to see you among us in this unique experience.
Concluding my words, I warmly greet each of you and I am honored to present 60MUN for the fifth time.
