Dear Delegates, Honorable Advisors and Distinguished Guests,
My name is Rüzgar AKGÜL, I am the Secretary-General of this conference, and on behalf of the Secretariat, it is my utmost honour to welcome you to the 2nd installation of TEDESMUN Model United Nations Conference which will be held throughout 12-15th of February 2020 at TED Eskişehir College Private Anatolian High School.
We at TEDESMUN 2020, are hopeful to treat you with irreplicable experience throughout our conference and make sure all of you honorable visitors have a wonderful conference throughout.
I would like to really start my letter by further elaborating on our theme for this year. which is called “Pangea Ultima” and explain its meanings for us at TEDESMUN, both literally and metaphorically.
“Pangea Ultima” in a physical sense is a theory that implies the world is going to crumble in itself and all that of the continents are going to be merging with each other in about 250 million years time.
But metaphorically for us, “Pangea Ultima” means unification, glocalization, problem solving, ending the years old separation, segregation and discrimination, knowing no boundaries, and most importantly, BEING UNITED AS ONE.
In our concept of “Pangea Ultima”;a problem that occurs in some parts of the world does not mean that the residents of those respective parts of the world are abandoned while dealing with these issues. Instead, at TEDESMUN 2020, we strongly urge this unification process and we believe the ideology of “Your issue is our,the entire world’s issue; not just yours” and we urge you fellow participants to respond and resolve these problems accordingly.
This year, we will be meeting you in 9 different committees which are DISEC, SPECPOL, UNODC, Health and Environment committee, OHCHR, ICJ, ECOSOC, Historical Committee and Futuristic Committee.
I would like to thank all participants for their efforts to make the world a better place.
Secretary General of TEDESMUN 2020
