Greetings from the Secretary General
Esteemed delegates, invitees, staff, and students,
I am ecstatic to welcome you to the fourth iteration of the Vanier Model United Nations conference. On April 23rd and 24th, 2022, a myriad of committees will be presented to entice the geopolitically-oriented mind to think, act and execute ideas, plans and solutions on issues past and present.
Another issue which we all remain in the fight against at present is the novel coronavirus – which has, for the second year in a row, prompted VMUN to hold our conference virtually. We are set on ensuring that the experience will remain no less personal than if it were in person; the delegate experience is without a doubt the most important item on our agenda.
A set of four different committees will be offered this year at VMUN. From the historical negotiation of the Good Friday Agreement to end sectarian violence in Northern Ireland, to the irredentist activities of China within its own maritime boundaries, to finding solutions to global air pollution, as well as an esoteric ad hoc not for the faint of heart, it is without a doubt that at least one of these committees will be appealing to everyone who wishes to partake in our conference.
On behalf of the entire executive team, we will be honoured to meet everyone – albeit from a distance.
All the best,
