↑ Return to UNISAMUN 2013

Welcome Letter by the Secretary General

Honourable Future Delegates,
Esteemed Colleagues,
Dear Friends,

as this year’s Secretary General, it is my honour and pleasure to welcome you to the Second Edition of UNISAMUN, the Model United Nations hosted by the University of Salerno and organised by the UNISAMUN Society. I will have the privilege to be your humble host next October 7th to 11th, 2013 in the wonderful city of Salerno, a city located in one of the most beautiful and breathtaking coasts of the entire world. However, it is now for its incredible landscapes nor for its history that I kindly invite you to attend our conference.

This year’s Conference is full of surprises and its contents will allow you, as a representative of a foreign Government, to explore new themes and issues, face new challenges and meet new, different people from many nationalities. Last year’s edition hosted participants from twenty different countries and we aim to improve that figure, thanks to our new partnerships and networks with other MUNs as well as other associations, so that you may experience a lively multicultural environment at work to address worldwide issues.

This year, one of our strengths is certainly the Secretariat: the chairpersons you will meet are amongst the most talented and resourceful people I have ever met. Not only they are passionate and eager to help you live an amazing week but also they are young students and professionals just like you who will be able to broad and go deeper into your understanding of the international community. Many of them live or have lived abroad, have worked in international organisations and possess an excellent knowledge of both the topics you are going to discuss and the international bodies you are going to simulate.

In conclusion, we are waiting for you, young leaders of the future, to come and find new, intriguing, innovative and creative solutions to old problems. This year’s Conference Concept is the Lack of Leadership in Contemporary World: I believe UNISAMUN 2013 can be an excellent opportunity to test your skills as possible future leader for your community, your country and, why not, internationally. However, I hope UNISAMUN 2013 can be an occasion to reflect over the role of leadership and how this can influence a community. If you think you can shed some light on the issue and you feel ready to debate intensively for five days.

There is nothing left for me to say but come: you shall not regret it!
