Dear delegates!

It’s my honor to welcome you to the Moscow State University Model United Nations 2021.

It is known that the United Nations was formed because leaders across the world knew that they could only deliver security and peace for their citizens at home if they could cooperate as a community of nations. Providing security and stability worldwide is what we, as a community, are supposed to do together.

At the MSUMUN I have the honor to be a Vice-President of UNEP, which deals with the sustainable development of Arctic.

We have a lot work to be done and I hope together the member-states will work out the Resolution and will do it in framework of our Charter, being fully committed to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

On behalf of the UNEP Presidium I encourage you to take the chance of becoming a part of this huge international modelists family, become a diplomat for at least five days and face one of the most important questions nowadays.

You never learn something until you try, so don’t be afraid and just enjoy your opportunity!

Look forward to seeing you in Moscow!

UNEP Vice-President,
Ani Markosyan

Honorable delegates!

I am glad to welcome you to the MSUMUN 2021 on behalf of an Expert of our committee!

Our joint work will concern the issues of a unique region that affects the whole planet. The sustainable development of the Arctic languishes to be considered by you. This is a quite complex agenda that requires the knowledge of the nature of several natural processes, awareness of a number of UN resolutions and a lot more. At this point I would like to cheer you up! There is no need to doubt in your abilities. A little bit of guts and effort and the Expert’s report, of course, will help you solve anything.

Our model will provide you a great opportunity to try a role of a real diplomat. Your aim is to represent a chosen country regardless of your own opinion. But your hard work will be accompanied by wonderful people: your colleagues, Honourable presidium, MSUMUN journalists and others!

All in all, this is a fantastic chance to practise English, oratory, overcome the fear of performing, gain valuable experience and, finally, have an amazing time! I am looking forward to working with you.

Expert of the UNEP,
Vitaly Malov
