Prospective Future Participants of CALMUN 2017,



With the warmest sincerity, it is my honor and greatest pleasure to welcome you all to the second annual session of CALMUN on behalf of the whole team. After our admired first session in 2016, it has become our intention and main goal to make this success a tradition.


As the CALMUN Family continues to grow and gain experience, we are once again inviting you to our conference, themed as “The Evolution of Human Society: Adapting to the 21st Century”. Future, is not fate. It is the reflection of humanity’s deeds of today. This is the reason, why we, as the youth, have to decide upon our own fate. There is no one that can understand our needs, wants and complains better than us. It won’t be asked us, what kind of future we want. We need to think, create ideas, debate, make a decision and fight for what we have decided. The reason behind our choice of that theme is to help you to begin fulfilling those stages. Your ideas will shape the future you will live in.


With my full confidence in my team, I’m looking forward to seeing you at Cağaloğlu Anadolu Lisesi Model United Nations Conference 2017 on 14-15-17-18 April 2017.


Sincerely,

Ahmet Burak Erdoğan

Secretary-General of CALMUN 2017




Dear Prospective Participants and distinguished advisors,


As the head of the academic team, I would like to welcome all of you to our second session of Cagaloglu High School Model United Nations. I am immensely proud to be a part of a highly respected Secretariat and I hope all of our participants have a wonderful time engaging in conversation, pushing their creativity to its limit and hopefully, learning more about the world we live in.


As Carl Sagan has said: “Our passion for learning ... is our tool for survival.” Inspired by the words and legacy of this exceptional scientist and science communicator, we as the Academic Team, have chosen “The Evolution of Human Society: Adapting to the 21stCentury” as the theme for our second session of Cagaloglu High School Model United Nations. Looking at the world, it is clear that countries who've made better use of science and technology are in better shape than ones with a different desideratum. While one part of the world is almost always on the brink of discovering something amazing, countries on the other part of the world are struggling to even adapt to the 21st century. Although it is truly incredible that the world is globalized to the point where even culture is interchangeable, we must also recognize the importance of cultural diversity and the role it plays in ensuring sustainable development. While UNESCO tackles these issues, our General Assembly will try to resolve problems that have emerged as a result of rapid scientific and technological development. Sailors on a becalmed sea, we sense the stirring of a breeze, but are we ready for the storm? That is up to you, honorable delegate.


This year, the General Assembly committees will be guided by THIMUN Rules of Procedure and the delegations will be represented by their ambassadors during the General Assembly Plenary Sessions which will be held on the first and last day of the conference. The Special Committees will be guided by Harvard Rules of Procedure.


I'm looking forward to seeing you all at CALMUN 2017!


Yours sincerely,

Pelin POYRAZ

Head of Academy
