WorldMUN Taipei 2010

Representing the Kingdom of Denmark, ETH MUN participated in WorldMUN with a delegation of 12 students. 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. More than 2,000 students from over 70 countries participated, speeches were held by the president of the Republic of China, the mayor of Taipei and other politicians. After intense preparation, our team was able to stand out both in and besides debate: In cooperation with ETH’s International Institutional Organization (IIA), we distributed information about studying at ETH during the global village; furthermore, 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 Georg Polzer and Eric Schaanning.
Participation of the conference was supported by ETH MUN with 500 CHF per delegate. That amount represents about 25% of the fixed costs for the conference. After the huge success in Taipei, the preparation for a participation in WorldMUN 2011 – taking place in Singapore – has started already.
