Dear Delegates, 

 

It is with great pleasure and honor that I invite you to the Clermont-Ferrand Model United Nations international conference (ClerMUN) organized by The Ensemble Scolaire International Massillon and the Ecole Bilingue Internationale. It will be held from November 8-10th 2021. 

Last spring, our very first edition face-to-face took place despite unforeseen difficulties due to the pandemic of Covid-19. Today, I am proud to announce that our second conference is becoming international with English, French and bilingual committees !

 

For this edition, we have chosen the theme of "Mobilities" because its issues cover all areas, be they economical, industrial, environmental, social, urban or health. When mobilities promote sustainable development, they contribute to human progress and therefore to build our future such as the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The SDGs are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere. For example, in the 1960s, our societies introduced the model of individual cars. Henceforth, environmental issues question this model and sustainable mobility seems to be a solution. What used to be progress must be rethought to adapt to the current situation.

 

In order to address the different areas of this theme, ClerMUN has 5 committees including  the Security Council and the Human Rights Council, as well as the World Health Organization, the UN Refugees Agency and the Conference on Trade and Development.

By taking part in our MUN, you will have the opportunity to develop your critical skills, your eloquence, your ability to work in a team, and also the pleasure of sharing unforgettable memories and developing new friendships. I hope that our conference will motivate you to become an actor of your future.

In addition to the ceremonies and debating times, touristic activities will lead to discovering new landscapes. To know more, I invite you to browse our website and also our social networks which you will find at the bottom of the page.

 

Finally, I will quote Kofi Annan, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and the seventh Secretary-General of the United Nations :

 

“The only route that offers any hope of a better future for all humanity is that of cooperation and partnership”

Committing to ClerMUN contributes to this "hope for a better future" by defending human values ​​and taking on the challenges of today and tomorrow. The United Nations works to build a better future for all and relies on us to be agents of change. So, join the ClerMUN 2021 experience without further delay!

 

On behalf of the entire ClerMUN team, I sincerely hope to meet you in Clermont-Ferrand in the autumn !

 

Best regards, 

 

Clara Duchez

Secretary-General
