Representing the Republic of India, ETH MUN participated in WorldMUN with a delegation of 18 students (= biggest ETH MUN delegation ever). This conference, organized by Harvard University in cooperation with a host team, takes places at a different venue every year and is the biggest, most prestigious of all conferences. After intense preparation, our team was able to stand out both in and besides debate: In cooperation with SwissNex, we had the excellent opportunity of a guided tour by Singaporean students (together with EPFL MUN); furthermore our booth at Global Village was supported by SwissNex (decoration) and Ricola. As the years before we performed at the Cabaret Night, a social event with over 2,000 spectators, and – last but not least – the team won four awards. Special thanks go to the Head Delegates Vince Moens and Marc Sinner.
The conference was partially sponsored by Contact Singapore, an alliance of the Ministry of Manpower and the Singapore Development Board. Through this cooperation the 18 students had the chance to attend an information meeting about living and working opportunities in Singapore.
After the huge success in Singapore, the preparation for a participation in WorldMUN 2012 – taking place in Vancouver – has started already.
