SAIMUN is an attempt to create awareness among young minds on the various pressing issues that affect mankind, resources, as well as our planet. It provides a stimulating environment to find probable solutions to many daunting real-world challenges. The eConference, also addressed as eSAIMUN 2021, had ten committees each for Classes IX-X and XI-XII, with interesting and stimulating agendas on global policies.
The Guest of Honour at the inaugural session was Dame Barbara Woodward, DCMG, OBE, United Kingdom’s permanent representative to the UN. In her address, she said, “If the United Nations is going to make a real difference in the real world, the UN needs to be a place where everyone can come together to find solutions to the planet’s twenty-first century challenges: that means governments, businesses, community organisations, academia, and – most importantly of all – young people like yourselves.”
This year, the committees included United Nations General Assembly - Disarmament & International Security (UNGA-DISEC), United Nations Security Council (UNSC), World Health Organisation (WHO), United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Special Political and Decolonization Committee (SPECPOL), International Labour Organization (ILO), Social Humanitarian and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM), United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW) and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
SAI Model United Nations (SAIMUN) Conference is considered as one of India’s largest MUN. SAIMUN is a duly accredited registered event of United Nations Information Centre for India and Bhutan (UNIC), under the aegis of the United Nations (UN) and follows the UN4MUN procedures.
Odisha Governor Ganeshi Lal, who was the chief guest for eSAIMUN 2021, said, “It is wonderful to see the involvement of students to connect to the world as a family. Divine light is bestowed upon all of us; let the SAIoneers spread the light of wisdom as future leaders. Children, you exist to be the super souls, that the divinity has brought you into existence to spread that light in our Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, one world one family,” said Lal.
