Welcome from our Atlanta 2017 Secretary-General:

J.B. Desselle - Secretary-General - SRMUN Atlanta 2017

Dear Esteemed Delegates, Faculty Advisors, and Friends of SRMUN,

On behalf of the entire SRMUN Atlanta staff, I would like to send a warm welcome to all as we are excited to bring together the 28th edition of our SRMUN Fall conference. Starting in 1990, SRMUN has continued to provide college and university students the premier Model United Nations conference for delegates across the country. SRMUN creates an environment that presents unique and demanding challenges that requires delegates to work together to create solutions facing many pressing international issues. We are excited that delegates will be engaging in critical discussion on issues such as human rights of migrant and refugees, cyber-security, urban population growth, increasing accessibility to sustainable trade and development, and much more.

Registration for SRMUN Atlanta 2017 is now open and can be found by clicking here. Please contact me should you have any questions and I invite you to take a moment and explore our website as it contains information regarding registration, this year’s Member State matrix, our downtown Atlanta home, fees, and delegate preparation materials.

At this time, I am proud to announce the theme for SRMUN Atlanta 2017:

“Development through Dialogue: Using Global Cooperation to Build Lasting Change”.

Former Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon said “Building sustainable cities - and a sustainable future - will need open dialogue among all branches of national, regional and local government. And it will need the engagement of all stakeholders - including the private sector and civil society, and especially the poor and marginalized.” Being able to have conversation with our fellow man allows for understanding between parties. Only then, the foundation for tangible change will occur. This theme is meant to challenge delegates to use diplomacy and work together to find common ground and produce resolutions with solutions that can impact our world. It is my hope that together we can challenge the delegates to think of diverse and encompassing resolutions to the topics proposed using all aspects of the theme.This year’s committees will be:

General Assembly Plenary (GA Plen)
International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)
United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD)
United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP)
Commission on the Status of Women (CSW)
United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC)
Group of 77 (G-77)
Group of 20 (G-20)
North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)
Security Council (SC)
