On behalf of the Environmental Commission executive team, we look forward to welcoming you to the first annual American School of Dubai Model United Nations Conference. We have hopes for a stimulating conference and fruitful debate in which we will tackle various issues identified by our forum.
The Environmental Commission is one of the six major organs that form the United Nations. We will not only be debating some of the world’s most relevant environmental concerns, but we will also be finding direct and viable solutions to the problems they pose. In this forum, we will be discussing three major issues that are currently concerning our environment: finding sustainable solutions to environment-related living concerns in industrial megalopolis areas worldwide, tackling the creation of environmentally-conscious and long-term solutions in order to support refugees in the Middle Eastern North African region, and strengthening efforts pertaining to the preservation of natural ecosystems in the Arctic in opposition to recent corporate activity in the region and rising temperatures. Our goal is that you all leave this conference with a sense of achievement as a result of thoughtful and creative solutions to some of the most important issues our world is currently facing.
In preparation for ASDMUN, we encourage all delegates to research the topics provided thoroughly and prepare formal and well thought out resolutions. As these topics are both complex and pressing in nature, it is important that everyone arrives well prepared in order to encourage effective and purposeful debate. With your full involvement, we hope to formulate viable solutions to our issues in an effort to better our future.
We would like to wish all of you the best of luck in this year’s conference as we are sure it will provide you with unforgettable experiences and international friends to last you a lifetime. We are greatly looking forward to meeting you all this March!
