LETTER FROM THE SECRETARIAT
“There is nothing we can say to the world’s children that can convince them the world needs to be the way it is. That means we must do everything we can to close the gap between the world as it is, and the world as it should be.” - Ban Ki-moon, 8th Secretary General of the United Nations
The United Nations is determined to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights- in the dignity and worth of the human person and to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom.
To meet these ends, partnership must continue to be at the heart of our strategy. We should have the humility to acknowledge the essential role of tolerance, harmony and strength, while maintaining full awareness of our unique convening power.
As the generation at the forefront of global change, it is our responsibility to identify world problems and build effective mechanisms for their solution and prevention, in turn fostering a better tomorrow. Thus, the key to global betterment lies in the hands of the youth of today.
It is an honour to present to you the 11th edition of the Annual World Summit, a long awaited two-day conference which will be returning in person after a two-year online experience. Specially articulated for the needs of all delegates, each committee has been designed for future diplomats like you to stimulate intelligent and constructive debate. The committees are United Nations Security Council (UNSC), Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC), United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Indian Parliament (IP), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and The International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL). These committees are modelled along the lines of the UNA - USA Rules of Procedure and will be chaired by the competent students of Jamnabai Narsee School, who will facilitate thought-provoking discussions.
Furthermore, we are thrilled to announce that the Annual World Summit will be opening its doors to the students of Grade 9 and 10 for the first time ever. We bring our juniors the same committees, agendas, experienced Executive Board and the very same spirit of competition and vigour associated with our prestigious conference. We look forward to providing young minds with opportunities that pave the way for a bright and egalitarian future.
We also take immense pride in our special crisis committee called the Council of the Elite, which will be conducted by the Secretariat. The deliberations for the same solely depend upon one’s performance on the first day of the conference, after which the best delegates from each committee will be selected to propound their views on specially chosen issues.
Delegates you have been called upon to be the change that you wish to see in the world. We invite you to deliberate, debate, research, synergize, collaborate, strategize and most importantly, evolve into leaders capable of solving the numerous crises that plague our global community. Above all, this conference will allow you to channelize your inner diplomat. We hope you enjoy this experience of a lifetime.
We invite you to:
Secretary General : Piushi Ajwani
Deputy Secretary General : Krish Rao
Under Secretary General : Sia Bhimani
