Dear MUN Directors,
We cordially invite you to apply to this year’s Berlin Model United Nations Conference held from November 20th to November 23rd at the John F. Kennedy School Berlin. The topic for the 2013 conference will be Education: The Key to Advancement, Equality, and a Secure Future.
Political thinkers, world leaders, and local politicians repeatedly emphasize the importance of education. Eleanor Roosevelt labeled it “the cornerstone of liberty,” Horace Mann “the great equalizer of the conditions of men, the balance-wheel of the social machinery.” Education and free discussion serve as the antidotes of bigotry, ignorance, and morbid minds. Nelson Mandela enthusiastically proclaimed education to be “the most powerful weapon” to change the world. Unfortunately for many peoples in our global village, universal popular education remains a lofty dream, thus excluding them from the promised opportunities and blessings. We are convinced that this is true for all regions of the world.
If your school is interested in participating, please register by completing Form I on our website. Please note that our school facilities do not allow us to accept more than 650 participants, therefore, by submitting this Form I, your participation at this conference is not automatically guaranteed.
At the same time, we would invite you and your students to share your perspective on the education in your city by making a 5-7 minute video to be shown at the opening ceremony. If you are interested in submitting a video, please mention this in your application on Form I.
You will be notified via email by May 31st whether your school has been accepted to participate in the 2013 BERMUN Conference.
The application forms for student officers are available through the BERMUN Secretariat. If you would like to recommend a student for such a position, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for submitting Form I and Student Officer Applications is set for May 17th.
Interested students can apply for the Youth Assembly, International Court of Justice and Press on our website beginning on June 3rd.
