Dear all,

After careful consideration and bearing in mind the sanitary protocols of the Hellenic National Public Health Organization, we have decided to host a hybrid conference this year so as to ensure everyone's health and well-being!

The Secretariat, the members of the Student Officers' Team, some members of the Press Team and the Organizing Team can attend the conference in-person, while all delegates and ICJ officers should participate online. In the Opening and Closing Ceremony invited guests may attend the conference in-person as well. Further information about the COVID-19 measures can be found under the COVID-19 section.

We will try our best to ensure that all participants will still have a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Kind regards, 

The 4th DSTMUN Organizing Team

Welcome

Dear MUN Directors, Advisors, Delegates,

 

It is with great pleasure that we hereby invite you to the fourth DSTMUN conference (Deutsche Schule Thessaloniki Model United Nations Conference) taking place from Friday 12th November to Sunday 14th November 2021.

 

A three-day-long simulation of the proceedings of the United Nations, DSTMUN is designed for junior high school and high school students (grades 8 to 12) and provides them with the opportunity to improve their English-speaking as well as debating skills when discussing global issues in an international environment. Delegates will not only profit from the conference’s official language being English (employed for preparing resolutions, lobbying and debating as well as for socializing with delegates from other countries), but they will also come into contact with the world of diplomacy as they do research on their country’s positions, prepare declarations and resolutions, and learn to negotiate and cooperate according to UN regulations, all the while developing their skills of critical analysis, public speaking and compromising.

 

Being a conference made by students for students, DSTMUN proves that youth is indeed capable of achieving important tasks, which is exactly what delegates will be called upon to do during the three days of our conference.

 

The conference will consist of four General Assembly Committees (Disarmament and International Security Committee; Economic and Financial Committee; Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Committee; Special Political and Decolonization Committee) as well as five specialized committees (Security Council, Council of the European Union, Special Conference on the Preservation of Cultural Heritage and Art, Arctic Council as a Crisis Committee, International Court of Justice). Depending on the committee they take part in, delegates will do research on their topic, draft resolutions and policy statements on various issues and learn to follow the rules and formal ways set by the United Nations.

 

This year’s conference topic being “Preservation of Cultural Heritage during COVID-19”, we look forward to inspired debates aiming to determine solutions on a global scale at this time of challenge for us all. “The global nature of the COVID-19 crisis is a call for the international community to reinvest in international cooperation and intergovernmental dialogue” said Audrey Azoulay, Director-General of UNESCO in April 2020. The pandemic has made the necessity for global solutions and individual contributions to mankind’s problems abundantly clear. In this regard, your pursuit of individual development at this MUN conference will not only serve you well yourself, but will ultimately contribute to human development worldwide.

You can register through our website, where you can also find all information about the deadlines and the fees (https://www.dstmun.com/). Since the conference is going to be online for all delegates, we have changed our fees to 5€, part of which will be given away to a philanthropic organisation. 

Please feel free to contact our team for any further information at dstmodelun@gmail.com.

 

We very much hope to welcome you at our conference in November! 

 

Best wishes,
