Written by. Yoo jin Lim

On April 13th, 2019, Seoul Scholars International held its first annual Model United Nations (MUN) conference, SSI MUN: The Visus.

SSLAS MUN is a student-organized and student-led MUN conference hosted by Seoul Scholars International. This event gave an opportunity to students ranging from elementary to university students from 10 schools in Seoul, Incheon, Daejeon, Gimhae, and North Jeolla Province to share their awareness of global issues and learn from the diverse perspectives of countries. In this event, students were able to roleplay delegates of multiple countries and of UN committees.
On the day of the conference, a total of 33 people showed up with smiles on their faces. Participants took part in either one of the two committees: DISEC (Disarmament and International Security Committee) and UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization).
Delegates in DISEC dealt with the measures of administering nuclear dismantlement and advocating nuclear nonproliferation in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Likewise, UNESCO debated under the theme of preserving cultural heritage in areas of conflict.
From this experience, students were able to learn the true value of MUN. “I felt like I’m really the delegate and responsible for the country I am assigned to”, said Harry Park, a chair and swing delegate in this event.
The SSI MUN conference turned out to be a success for delegates, chairs and members of the secretariat. “It was my utmost honor to serve everyone as the Secretary General of the first annual MUN conference held at SSI.
I am proud that delegates, chairs, and staffs immersed into their roles throughout the 10 hours within each of their committee chamber,” stated Heejin Kang, the Secretary General.
