ABOUT

THE SMUN VISION

In its most clinical sense, the goal of Model UN is to provide an accurate simulation of the real United Nations. It is this task of realistically simulating the workings of an organization composed of almost every sovereign nation in the world that forces delegates to learn the intricacies of state policies and principles, teaches them to unite in the face of chaos and deal with the problems the leaders of our world have been unable to by using instruments of dialogue and cooperation. The goal of Model UN is not to dominate; it is to lead. To combine different ideas, backgrounds, and approaches; to reason, collaborate, negotiate and draw on personal experience to create something that matters. To find real solutions to real problems. The goal of Model UN is to face conflict through collaboration, not confrontation.

From its modest beginnings in 1998, Sanskriti has grown to become one of the most reputed institutions in the country owing to its investment in fostering social consciousness and compassion. Model United Nations at Sanskriti began almost 9 years ago as a student initiative to develop commanding leaders; since our inaugural conference in 2012, Sanskriti Model United Nations has grown to become a close knit, passionate community involved in Model UN conferences across Asia. For 8 years Sanskriti has hosted almost 500 delegates from across the country in its annual conference; SMUN is also proud to host a diverse group of delegates from our international partners in Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Australia.

For these 10 years, SMUN has tried to promote the idea of Model UN with which we began this tradition. One that is linked to the Sanskriti philosophy itself- that critical thinking and negotiation creates powerful leaders. We remain committed to our conference philosophy- that Model UN is more than just argumentation and analysis, rather it is an exercise ultimately rooted in leadership and collaboration. We train our students in the skills of research, diplomacy, debate, and negotiation, and encourage them to take initiatives and responsibilities, thus empowering them with the ability to host, time and again, one successful conference after another.

SMUN is unique in that our secretariat invests deeply in creating committees that try to inspire a genuine understanding of global politics and international relations.

 

This year, as every year, we hope to leave you with not only a heightened awareness of our incredibly troubled world but an understanding of the diversity of opinion and perspective that form the foundation of the United Nations itself.

A LETTER FROM THE SECRETARY GENERAL

“Our Lives Begin To End The Day We Stop Speaking About Things That Matter”

 

Dear Delegates and Faculty Advisors,

 

It is with great pride and pleasure that I welcome you to the ninth edition of Sanskriti Model United Nations which is going to be held from April 22nd to April 24th,2020. 

 

Sanskriti School’s vision statement is to create happy, thinking and feeling individuals who will be future changemakers. Over the last 10 years, Sanskriti Model United Nations has been a platform that has enabled high school students to learn about pressing conflicts in the world ranging from social, economic, cultural and political issues and deliberate to find creative, innovative and sustainable solutions to the problems our troubled world has faced and continuously faces. 

 

Model United Nations over the last 4-5 years has proved to be an invaluable learning experience for me. Model-UN has played a significant role in shaping my personality and developing my skills to the level at which they are today. I take great pride in acknowledging the fact that SMUN has had a huge role to play in who am i today, a self-confident leader who wishes to create a positive impact on the lives of the people.   

 

Over the years, we at SMUN have strived to create and provide a setting for passionate youth leaders to learn about pressing global issues, understand different points of view and compromise and collaborate for the greater good. We have always put collaboration over competition and will continue to do so for the years to come. 

 

This year at SMUN, we provide you with a diverse range of 10 committees and agendas to choose from. We seek to enhance your delegate experience with the simulation of conventional and unconventional committees like the Security Council and the National Convention being directed by our extremely passionate and dedicated Secretariat members.  

 

As we approach the completion of the first decade of SMUN, we do hope and believe that with the continuous and enthusiastic participation of students and schools from across India and Asia, SMUN will continually grow to become bigger and better, year after year. It is with this hope that I invite you to be a part of this edition of SMUN and become an integral part of making SMUN 2020 a true success.

 

Looking Forward To See You In April 

 

Yours Sincerely, 

Aarrnesh Kapoor

It is my great honour and privilege to welcome you to the ninth edition of Sanskriti Model United Nations (SMUN) being held in the year 2020. 

SMUN was established to take education beyond our classrooms and textbooks; to create leaders of tomorrow. An ever-changing world with new challenges and the re-emergence of historical fault-lines needs leaders capable of thinking for the global community as a whole. 

The contemporary liberal world order is being stretched to its limits due to the rise of right-wing populism and parochial world views adopted by many leaders across the world. Countries that were the anchors for upholding this very world order are becoming narrow in their outlooks. At this critical juncture, we need leaders committed to equality, justice, and freedom with a vision to think beyond the prism of narrow nationalism and to work for humanity as a whole.


Sanskriti MUN provides an excellent platform for students from across India and abroad to develop and equip themselves for such a future where each individual works not just for his or her own community but for the global community as one.


Sanskriti MUN has always aimed to imbibe principles of diplomacy, cooperation, collaboration, and negotiation - all skills that will surely be of paramount importance in a world of multiple ideas. 

I encourage all participants in SMUN 2020 to use this conference as a forum to expand their horizons, understand the different points of view, and, most importantly, become more accepting and receptive to differences around the world.  

I look forward to welcoming you to Sanskriti Model United Nations, 2020, with the aspiration that all of you will make a difference one day, and be the change you want to see in the world. 

 

Yours sincerely, 

 

Aadyot Prakash
