Sunday – 30 April 2017
The morning started with a training by Mr Erik Leiden, in which he gave us an introduction to the UN and its procedures. He discussed the skills and the knowledge we needed to make the most of the committee sessions.
Soon after, in the Opening Plenary, we were briefed about what we would be doing in the MUN. We then dispersed to our respective committees (General Assemblies and Security Councils) for the delegates' opening speeches.
The topic, that all the committees were working on this year, was the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. There are 17 SDGs -- ICT, Youth Development, Gender Equality among others.
What we liked best was Mr Erik’s outstanding presentation. It was filled with activities and taught us all we needed to participate in our very first MUN.
