Letter from the Secretary General

Dear participants,

It is my absolute honour to invite you all to the 12th annual Oasis International School Model United Nations Conference (OISMUN) in November, at the Oasis International School campus in Cairo, Egypt. Not only is OISMUN the first bilingual conference in Egypt with both French and English committees, but our MUN is also affiliated to The Hague International Model United Nations (THIMUN), a global leader in the MUN community. On that note, it is our priority to ensure that the conference is organized to the highest standards in order to pursue our goals. Nelson Mandela once said: “We can change the world and make it a better place. It is in your hands to make a difference”. As a young generation, today we have the chance to change the world, change it into a fair, lively, and graceful world bringing prosperity and security to each individual. Everyday we get a chance to do something different: to change the world! This is why we should start now and prepare ourselves by seizing each opportunity that will allow us to do so. That is precisely the reason why our conference’s goal is to encourage the youth to take part in different debates in order to address the worldwide challenges present today while learning to share their ideas and their standpoints working jointly with diligence. Therefore, and in order to give our delegates the change to explore and debate on a variety of topics, this year’s conference will consist of six English committees: The Security Council, The International Court of Justice, The General Assembly of the United Nations, The Human Rights Council, and The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crimes. I shall also give consideration to the three French committees that the delegates have the opportunity to join: The Security Council (Le Conseil de Sécurité), The Human Rights Council (Le Conseil des Droits de l’Homme) and The Disarmament Committee (Le comité de Désarmement). The conference will continue to put forward its thrilling crisis simulations which allow delegates to react and take actions with regard to real-life crises in the UN. OISMUN is not only a conference that will benefit you on an academic level (considering your opportunity to expand your knowledge and utilize it in engaging debates) but it is also your chance to meet new people and create unforgettable memories. Do not miss out on such an experience! Prepare and embolden yourself to engage in world-changing debates as you seize this amazing opportunity to participate in one of the top MUN conferences in Egypt!

In case of any inquiries, do not hesitate to contact me at secretary-general@oismun.net.
On behalf of the entire OISMUN team, I look forward to welcoming you in November in Cairo!

Best Regards,
Hanna H. Abdelakher
Secretary General
