Global Model United Nations 2010

Kuala Lumpur: Yesterday, after the Indian Embassy, I went to the Putra World Trade Centre to attend the day long 2nd Global Model United Nations Conference 2010 (GMUN 2010) (pictures).
GMUN is an academic simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate participants about civics, current events, effective communications, globalisation and multilateral diplomacy. This year’s theme is `Towards an Alliance of Civilization: Bridging Cultures to Achieve Peace and Development’.
Students from all over the world attended this Conference. These students were selected through a stringent selection process by their respective countries. They were lucky to get a chance to be at the Conference as the Under Secretary General Kiyo Ata Saka said in his speech. The Secretary General further said that these students would be the future MPs, diplomats, UN officials and world leaders.
I met many UN officials and my colleagues from WFUNA. In the evening, I attended the dinner reception hosted by the Ministry of Youth & Sports Department of Malaysia.
After dinner there was a cultural function in which there were performers from many countries. The cultural department of Malaysia presented Chinese, Thai and Tibetan cultural shows and also the
Peacock Dance of India.
As evening gave way to the night the youths gathered out there started to mingle and were soon singing and dancing with the performers.
It was a melting pot with students from so many different countries and varied cultures, who met each other for the first time, singing and dancing in unison to some of the familiar songs sung by famous singers. No doubt music connects people like no other medium.
