Welcome Letter from the Secretary General
Dear Delegates and Faculty Advisors,
The first session of New York University Shanghai Model United Nations Conference (NYUSHMUNC) will be held from Saturday, November 4, to Sunday, November 5, 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 not only to make this conference a platform to discuss pressing global issues, but also a lesson in forging solutions through diplomacy.
We strive to make this conference a catalyst for global connectivity and awareness of the 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 academic 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 is closed! Be sure to check our website for updates.
We hope to make this conference a memorable experience for delegates while in Shanghai by hosting events and activities designed to engage and introduce students to the city they are in. With participants coming from all over the globe, we know that NYUSHMUNC will be a truly unique and global experience for all involved.
Lastly, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with concerns. The entire NYUSHMUNC team is eager to help answer any of your questions. With that being said, I look forward to seeing all the delegates in November!
