Message from Director General

Dear Delegates,

I am Tehseen Contractor; the Director General of the Cathedral International Model United Nations 2017 and it gives me immense pleasure and pride to welcome you all to be a part of the upcoming three days of passionate debate, engaging agendas and relaxed evenings away from the bustle of the city.

I have seen CIMUN growing over four years and as much as I have contributed in shaping and developing it, it has shaped me and helped me grow as a global citizen. Playing the role of diplomats and engaging in debates of powerful quality has left such wonderful memories for our institution that this year we have decided to take CIMUN to much greater heights.

Bo Bennett has rightly said, “Without initiative, leaders are simply workers in leadership positions” and here at CIMUN we push everyone to be a leader. This year’s theme, ‘take the initiative, make the difference’ is a perfect reflection of what we strive to incorporate not only in our daily lives at CVSL but also in every debate that will be held at CIMUN. Every delegate will have a chance to lead and inspire others delegates. Delegates, this is your opportunity to take the initiative!

This year we have a total of six committees headed by experienced MUN enthusiasts.

  • The United Nations Security Council (UNSC)
  • The United Nations Disarmament Commission (UNDC)
  • The Social Cultural and Humanitarian Committee (SOCHUM)
  • The United Nations Development Program (UNDP)
  • INTERPOL
  • The United nations Committee on Peaceful Uses of outer space (COPUOS)

So, if you appreciate the power of intense debates, the intricacy of writing fruitful resolutions, the rush of being showered with the latest crises and long for peaceful and energising evenings after a long day of hard work, Cathedral Vidya School, amidst nature, is the perfect place for you to be this September.

Eagerly looking forward to see you all here.

Sincerely,

Tehseen Contractor

(Director General, CIMUN 2017)
