Resourcefulness and creativity, two qualities that are often found stored without inhibition in the mind of the younger, are the bases of this year´s ACMUN goals. By providing academically and ethically rich environments, we hope to cultivate in the mind of the delegates, presidents and other participants of this year´s event, a sense of global responsibility and an effort to thrive for citizenship at an international level.
Sometimes, when faced with adversity, we tend to look for the simplest and easiest answer, the quicker fix and the short-term resolution. However, it is that mentality that caused the snowballing of incidents that, in turn, gave birth to the world problems of modern era. Unethical, discriminative concepts, apathy towards others and selfishness have long produced most, if not all of the issues faced by this year´s international community. That is precisely why this upcoming 17-20th of April, our team will do at its best to help bring up distinct solutions, innovative ideas, environment friendly plans and all inclusive, non-discriminatory policies.
It has been said multiple times that we live in an era of greed and misfortune, injustice and hate. However, it is our belief that to foster the love for others and the thirst for justice and acceptance is the first step to every long term and withstanding solution.
Hereby, it is my greatest pleasure to welcome you to ACMUN X.

The present day issues and controversies are more than palpable, we become familiar with them as we grow. Since the early stages of our lives, we’ve heard and been taught about international matters, which grow a feeling of wanting to change something, to act upon this. Nevertheless, being young fills us with impotence, as we realize our impact can’t be large enough.
The model of the United Nations, gives us that power: the power to be heard, to present viable solutions to the subjects we’ve always wanted to solve, of understanding and defending different points of view, and, over all, preparing ourselves for a future life of service and leadership. This is the ideal space to grow intellectually and acquire the abilities that one day will help us make our impact remarkable.
This is the time for you to give the best of yourself, for you to analyze, to learn, and to find common grounds. Think differently in order to break the current schemes, but think wisely enough to gain the committee with your arguments.Take this opportunity to stand out among all and learn in the process. We hope you find this experience valuable and advantageous, and that, thereafter, you will thrive for a peaceful tomorrow.
With no further ado, I welcome you to ACMUN X.

Director General ACMUN X
