A new year is here and I am honestly looking forward to welcoming all of you to the Prague Model United Nations 2012 in about two weeks. As tradition, this years PRAMUN Conference will be hosted by Gymnazium Jana Nerudy.
The organizing team has spent months of preparations and is now ready to do as much as it can to make the fourth conference as successful as the previous ones. But your role is just as important! The participants are those who create the common atmosphere, who keep the conference going and enrich it with their ideas. Whether you are a returning delegate, or this year is going to be your first time participating in a Model United Nations, you all have the same opportunities to enjoy it.
We are expecting delegations from many countries, which gives you all chances to meet interesting people who are curious about today´s world and want to share their opinions on current issues. Seeking solutions to seemingly insurmountable problems is a good training not only for a profession of a politician, but also for life. The time to test your debating skills while using your knowledge of current events has come.
I wish you all many fresh ideas, lively debates inspiring others, great number of resolutions that one should be proud of, and a lot of fun during your five days spent in Prague. The beginning of January is the time when people are making resolutions; United Nations is an organization that uses resolutions as document including the results of their negotiations. Let´s add one New Year´s resolution to ourselves: “I will try to make PRAMUN 2012 as enjoyable as possible for myself and for everyone else.”
THE YOUTH FORUM, A PRAMUN TRADITION
Having fun looking at ideas from different perspectives!... Having the courage to stand up for ideas which you can support with specific examples based on life experience and observations!
The purpose of the Youth Forum is to understand how other people think. Our THINKING GAME begins with a quote from famous thinkers, writers, scientists, musicians, artists or political leaders. The two quotes to be discussed at PRAMUN 2012 are listed below.
At first we will say YES to the quote, expressing support for the idea by citing detailed examples. Then we will say NO to the quote, rejecting the idea with well-detailed examples. After hearing the stimulatingly brilliant thoughts on both sides of the issue from the delegates, a vote will be taken:1 AGREE
At the beginning of the discussions it is not so important that you express your personal feelings on the quote right away. The critical thing is that your ideas inspire others to think. The Youth Forum is a process and by the end--after having heard ideas from your fellow delegates—you may even change your mind and your vote on the quote.YOUTH FORUM TOPICS 2012
A. “All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love.”
SUPPORT: Leave out romantic love for the moment. Give examples of how the love for something brings about understanding. Support Tolstoy’s idea that we don’t make enough progress on the human front because we don’t love.
REJECTION: Describe in detail other ideas/factors besides love that promote understanding.
B. “L’homme est ne’ libre, et partout il est dans les fers.”
“Man was born free, and everywhere he is in chains.”
SUPPORT: For 200 years Rousseau’s slogan has inspired people to rise up against their oppressors, to bring about change by means of revolution. Give examples of how this is relevant today.
REJECTION: Challenge the premise that man is born free. Is he? Give examples of other means besides revolution to rise up and bring about change. Formulate a better slogan that inspires people to act in the struggles they are facing today.
