Conference Invitation

Dear Delegates and Faculty Advisors,
On behalf of the entire organizing committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the third session of
The Shishukunj Model United Nations to be held in The Shishukunj International School, Indore from
Thursday, July 20 to Saturday, July 22, 2017.
The Shishukunj International School is one of the most reputed co-educational schools in Indore. It is not
just another school; it is a school with a difference. The difference is in its vision and action. At
Shishukunj, learning takes place in a holistic, nurturing, and secured environment. From a modest
beginning with a handful of students in 2005 and a lot of faith in the mission ‘Let Every Bud Bloom’, we
have progressed slowly but surely, to a school which now has over hundred committed faculty advisors
and more than 2000 students.
Shishukunj Model United Nations is yet another initiative by the school which builds on the legacy of the
school’s mission statement. At Shishukunj, we believe a Model UN conference provides an unparalleled
experience where students are engulfed in an environment that is intellectually invigorating and
enthralling. Three years have passed since the Shishukunj International School launched itself into the
domain of Model United Nations, and it has never looked back. With a strong and ardent desire to make
this world a better place to live, we have grown steadily into a national conference that fosters debate
and cooperation amongst its delegates from across the country.
This year, based on the theme, ‘Reinventing and Revitalizing the Force of Humanity’, the Shishukunj
Model UN strives to embody the ideal that sensitizing young minds to global issues and worldly
considerations is the need of the hour. The twenty seventeen conference will bring together close to 500
delegates in 10 distinct committees that will cover a wide array of geographical areas and time periods.
Under the banner of this conference, we bring to you two General Assembly committees, two Economic
and Social Council bodies, two Regional bodies and four Specialized Agencies including Press Corps.
The topics we will discuss are pertinent issues in today's world. With a commitment to the experience of
our participants in mind, we are confident that every delegate will be able to find a Shishukunj MUN
committee worth participating.
We hope that Shishukunj MUN will be an opportunity for you to gain insight into the art of diplomacy,
understand the value of collaboration and compromise, and build skills in public speaking, research, and
debate. Whether you are an MUN veteran or have no prior experience in Model UN, we sincerely hope
that you will consider joining us for The Shishukunj Model United Nations 2017. Please do not hesitate to
reach out to us with any questions or concerns. We look forward to welcoming you in July!
The Secretariat
Shishukunj Model United Nations 2017
