Dear delegates, distinguished Chairs,
It is my immense honor to have the opportunity to invite you to attend Rotaract Global Model United Nations in Nepal. The 11th Edition of Rotaract Global Model United Nations will be taking place in one of the most beautiful regions in the world, in Pokhara, Nepal, from 21 – 24 of August 2019.
RGMUN gives young professionals, students and youth the opportunity to be heard – to share their ideas with other like minded individuals striving for a better world and at the same time, the opportunity to share the outcomes of the conclusions of the conference with the decision makers.
It is my firm belief that Model U.N. broadens our horizons and gives us an incredible opportunity to understand other cultures. To make the world more secure and truly achieve peace and dignity for humankind as a whole, can only be achieved if we learn how to understand each other. I am looking forward to meeting you in Nepal this August and wish you will join us in our efforts in creating a better world.
Rotaract Global Model United Nations
