These 10 committees are; the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), the Historical Committee (HC), the Historical Joint Crisis Committee (HJCC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Disarmament Committee (DISEC), the Economic and Financial Committee (ECOFIN), the Social and Humanitarian Committee (SOCHUM), the Special Political and Decolonization Committee (SPECPOL), the Legal Committee and the Economic and Social Committee (ECOSOC). We have chosen unique and diverse agenda items for these committees for your utmost entertainment.
With that being said, I cannot wait to see you all in this year’s online TEDMUN, which will be held from 5th of June to 7th of June in Turkish standard time (GMT+3). I can genuinely say that this TEDMUN will be special for everyone.
Dear Delegates, Esteemed Student Officers, Prestigious Advisors,
It is our utmost pleasure to welcome you all to the seventh annual session of TEDMUN 2021 Online –. This organization has been carefully and meticulously prepared with the effort of dozens of people. Every little detail of this conference has been adjusted and prepared with the utmost caution and precision; in order for the participants to have a wonderful experience in their time here. Just as the United Nations stands for several paramount ideals, such as perseverance, unity, and trust; we see TEDMUN as a way of reflecting them unto our world, a tool to enhance our world views. These key principals course through our world, affecting every little decision we make. Even in this direst of times, we have to be a paragon of these virtues; when in a time of disarray, uncertainty where most disputes end up in a deadlock. We have embraced the change in our times, acting upon the ever-changing world we live in the recent times. Just as Mahatma Gandhi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” We will work to make a difference even in these times of ambiguity, we must grasp the unshakable truth, everlasting rights even when the winds of change soar affecting our judgement. Therefore we, as mankind, must bear the undaunting task of problem solving with adherence more than ever. We must be vigilant to navigate through the winds of change, to turn our world into a better one.
