Dear Delegates and Faculty Advisors,
The first session of New York University Shanghai Model United Nations Conference (NYUSHMUNC) will be held from Friday, March 17, to Sunday, March 19, 2017 at the NYU Shanghai campus on Century Avenue in the heart of Pudong, Shanghai’s financial hub. As a recently established NYU campus in Shanghai, we are aiming to not only make this conference a platform to discuss pressing global issues, but also a platform for solutions via diplomacy.
We strive to make this conference a stage for global connectivity and awareness of issues that affect our world. To achieve our goal, we will be hosting hundreds of delegates from different universities throughout China and the globe to provide them with true challenges of international diplomacy. By doing so, the delegates, along with our staff, will tackle numerous global issues through debate and diplomacy.
The theme for this year’s conference is China’s Global Emergence. We feel that this theme aligns perfectly with NYU Shanghai, as we are a rather new institution emerging onto the global stage. The theme entails everything from finance, to technology, to environmental protection, and more. China, with the largest growing economy in the world and its presence as a diplomatic superpower, is most definitely a nation with much to discuss.
Registration for NYUSHMUNC ‘17 will begin on December 9, 2016! Be sure to check our website for updates.
We hope to make this conference a memorable experience for delegates while in Shanghai. With delegates coming from all over the globe, we can ensure NYUSHMUNC will be a truly unique and global experience.
Lastly, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with concerns. The entire NYUSHMUNC team and myself will be helping with any questions and will definitely make this conference a truly dynamic experience. With that being said, I look forward to seeing all the delegates in March!
