SAIMUN 2018 – Unite to Progress

05 April 2018

‘Unite to Progress’– this year’s theme at SAIMUN – has provoked insightful debate surrounding issues that may inhibit global development. Considering the nature of our world’s rapid growth, change and conflict, cooperation amongst nations is essential to ensuring a future where we resolve our issues and all infringements upon human rights cease to exist.

The theme, in its true essence, was embodied throughout the conference: after three days of lobbying and passionate debate, it can be said that all delegates have been able to effectively converse, collaborate and contribute as though they are indeed the worlds future diplomats.

Over the weekend at Sheraton, a gathering of 42 BIS HCMC delegates with ranging experiences, passionately pushed for their respective countries’ interests and those of the wider world on a range of topics from the issue of cyber warfare, to the legality of Bitcoin, and from the situation in Venezuela to issues of corruption and cheating in professional sports. For some delegates, SAIMUN marked the end of their journey as part of the BIS delegation, whilst for others SAIMUN was just the very first tentative step on their MUN journey – just the debut of a new MUN generation, a preface to the future.

Within committee sessions, the melding of delegates’ personalities and the conflicts between states’ national interests acted as the kindling for heated discussion. The BIS delegation had success in managing to submit main resolutions in every single committee and, eventually, both resolutions debated during plenary were submitted by students from our school: Eunice Choi and Aarush Yendamuri, our youngest delegate. Most notably, one of our delegates, Victoria Fethke, triumphantly and rather spectacularly passed her resolution in General Assembly II with 35 votes for, 0 votes against and 0 abstentions – a spectacular success which is almost unheard of in the competitive committees of MUN.

Prior to the conference, our delegates prepared vigilantly, collaborating with our chairs and taking some hard hitting motivational advice from our esteemed Director, Mr Gamwell. Most importantly in our preparations we all made sure that our research was in depth, our speeches and resolutions were effective and we knew the issues. All of it was essential to our successes, and the numerous accolades won by our delegates is a testament to their public speaking skills, hard work, dedication and understanding of the issues being debated.
