Delegates, Sponsors, Observers, ladies and gentlemen

It is with great pleasure that I announce and welcome every single one of you to SAMUN XI. Since the very first installment of SAMUN, we have seen improvements, changes and reforms, but the core and soul of the event still holds true to this very day, eleven conferences after. That is to hold true to what the United Nations was created for in the first place, maintaining international peace and security. For that same reason we value and treasure diplomacy, and provide the space that is SAMUN XI for delegates to show their problem solving skills, creativity and ideas for changes that they want to see in the world. In this eleventh version of our model, we would like to look back at the essence of the past installments, and understand what made every single one special.

Even though this is a recreation of the United Nations, the problematics we’ll be tackling are affecting us as an international community. This merits discussions and solutions, and we know that every single one of our delegates has the capabilities to address properly, with diplomacy and peace in mind.

I sincerely hope that your time at SAMUN XI is memorable and inspiring, an event that you’ll never forget!

Best Regards,
Ernesto Serna
Sub Secretary-General
