Message from Secretary General
Greetings to our advisors, delegates and members of the International Press,
Welcome to the 7 th Edition of Zenith Model United Nations, the annual conference of Miranda House. I am immensely grateful and delighted to serve you as the Secretary General for this year. The first edition of Zenith was organized in 2012, as a part of the annual festival of the Department of Economics. Over the next six editions, the conference has grown to witness more challenging deliberations where students engage in lively discourse as world leaders.
It is a trying time for the youth as we attempt to bring about change which is always a difficult task. It requires time, patience and a fiery passion to be heard. However, in the wonderfully apt words of Margaret Mead, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has". And therein is the importance of an event like this. MUNs have become an interactive space for voicing of opinions, for discussion and debate, for agreements and disagreements. The brightest of minds come together to explore solutions to the critical issues in the hopes that the now hypothetical solution will in future, have the power to bring about good.
At Zenith MUN 2018, we wish to encourage greater understanding of the political, social and economic currents that have shaped the world in the past and present. Keeping this in mind, we bring to you five committees- the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, United Nations Economic and Social Council, European Union, Joint Crisis Committee and Parliamentary Standing Committee on External Affairs.
The Secretariat extends a warm invitation to one and all and we hope to host you on 17 th and 18 th March, 2018. We wish that delegates would be well researched with the agenda and procedures so as to enrich committee proceedings and one's individual experience at Zenith. We eagerly look forward to your participation to make our event a great success; to ignite sparks of great change.
Regards,
Vidisha Ghosh
Secretary General.
