MUNUC China Online Conference 2021

Invitation from the Organizing Committee

Dear delegates,

I’m Jake Fiedler, Secretary-General of the Model United Nations of the University of Chicago (MUNUC), and I am honored to welcome you to MUNUC China Online 2021. MUNUC annually hosts a four-day Model UN conferencein downtown Chicago, each year drawing more than three thousand dedicated delegates, advisors, and staff to a weekend of rigorous discussion and debate. MUNUC prioritizes pedagogical aspects of the MUN experience. More than engaging in competition, MUNUC encourages delegates to ask for feedback and improve their essential public speaking, negotiation, and debate skills. MUNUC makes every effort to create an environment where delegates are not just comfortable, but excited to have nuanced conversations which challenge their abilities and ideas, all in the context of forging solutions to pressing and intractable global problems.

This is our second annual MUNUC China Online conference. After taking the initiative to host the first online conference in May 2020, MUNUC has gathered numerous experiences on how to improve delegates’ experiences at virtual conferences. Our chairs and staffs adapted quickly to the new formatting, redesigning background guides, revamping conference flows, and making every effort to engage every delegate during the committee sessions. Learning from our past experiences, we are ready to replicate as much as the authentic Chicago conference experience to you. You will be discussing one of the most exciting and pressuring global challenges, and we are eager to hear what you think and see the impact you can make. Even if you are new to Model UN or unfamiliar with the virtual setting, our staff on every committee are ready and happy to act as guides both before and during conference. For experienced delegates, our dais members will guide you to dive deeper into the topics and challenge to achieve your best.

The past year has been challenging for all of us. It is definitely not a format that we all prefer, but choosing the virtual format reflects our commitment and your determination to make a difference. It is vital of you, the generation of solvers, to tackle these global problems and work in an integrated way to heal the world. We hope this event will encourage you to take the first step to solve the challenges in our global communities and take initiatives to turn your blueprint to reality.

If you want to contact MUNUC about the topics or content of any of the committees, or with other general questions, please feel free to email Jianyang Cheng, MUNUC’s Chief Strategy Officer at cso@munuc.org. Lastly, I would like to thank Weland for serving as our virtual host again this year, and we are all excited to meet with and work with you in May.

Best regards,

Jacob B. Fiedler
Secretary-General and Chief Executive Officer
Model United Nations of the University of Chicago
