Message from the Secretary General

Dear delegates, faculty advisors, parents, and future diplomats,

It is my honor to invite you to the 15th anniversary of Sri Lanka Model United Nations (SLMUN), taking place on the 17th and 18th of September 2022.

I am beyond excited to see all of you engage in heated debate as you discover solutions to both global and local issues. I am thankful and honored to work alongside my wonderful, committed and hard-working Secretariat as we bring you a version of MUN you have never seen before!

This year we have introduced a Youth Assembly which we hope to continue for years to come. In addition, IPC have been given a much needed increase in ability by allowing you to not just to interview delegates but also ask points of information!

Lastly, this year SLMUN is open for universities! (For selected committees only). We heard the community wanting to have universities in MUN and we agree. As a LLB graduate from the University of London I am pleased to invite or welcome back all university students into the world of SLMUN.

The theme for our crystal anniversary is “The Fearless Generation”

The youth have been fearless in their attempts to right the wrongs of their predecessors, both locally and internationally. It is fitting that we call you fearless as you engage in fierce debate to further your foreign policy and fight to win gold at SLMUN.

I am thankful to my Executive Committee members for their hard work and commitment towards this year’s conference. It is their efforts which will result in the accumulation of 1000 delegates from around the island.

MUN will teach you many things such as impromptu skills, researching techniques but above all I hope it will leave you with bonds, friendships and memories to transcend time.

We are ecstatic to see all of you on the 17th and 18th of September. We hope to see many of you at our workshops coming to a province near you !

Secretary General
