Welcome to the sixteenth annual Lebanese Model United Nations (LEBMUN), hosted by the American Community School Beirut! On behalf of the Secretariat of LEBMUN ’19, we would like to welcome you all to our conference occurring from February 22nd to February 24th.
As our MUN conference celebrates over a decade and a half of excellence in Lebanon and the surrounding international community, we hope that this year’s conference provides the best experience possible to all attendees, and that everyone leaves with a renewed hope in a brighter future.
In order to achieve the purpose of promoting and facilitating the growth of the world’s emerging leaders, we hope that this website provides all delegates, respected advisors, and guests with all the details regarding our conference. All the needed information regarding preparation, logistics, debate, and much more can be found on this website.
For the sixteenth year in a row, the longest out of any MUN program in the country, LEBMUN continues to transform a school activity to something much more. MUN has transcended all boundaries and involved into a truly outstanding experience, one that we sincerely hope you participate in.
In this year’s conference, delegates from all over the world will get the chance to meet, discuss, debate, compromise, and resolve the world’s most pressing issues elevating the intensity of debate and serving as the embodiment of cooperation and conflict resolution. In addition, LEBMUN ’19 continues to innovate as it introduces this year’s six forums: The General Assembly (GA), The Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), The Human Rights Council (HRC), The Ad Hoc GA Committee on Middle Eastern Security (MEC), The Security Council (SC), and The International Criminal Court (ICC). In addition to being able to participate in one of the aforementioned councils, delegates will have the chance to listen in on two keynote speeches delivered by experts in their respective fields, before a Q&A session in which they can benefit from first-hand interaction with the keynote speakers.
As per annual tradition, this year’s conference will be focused around a theme. After thorough deliberation, the theme for LEBMUN ’19 is " Achieving The UN Sustainable Development Goals ".
As members of LEBMUN ’19, it is our collective duty to approach these issues with an open mind, to always consider opposing viewpoints and to move forward together, putting the grievances of the past behind. Out of the chaos and destruction we have all come to know around us, there burns the embers of change and hope, of security and stability, and of unity and cooperation. When we work towards the common dream of a better future for the forthcoming generation, the embers light a spark. When we take direct, positive action, and this spark erupts into a raging fire. Remain optimistic and driven that this fire will shine the way forward as we all emerge from years of conflict, embracing each other, walking hand in-hand towards a brighter future.
On behalf of the entire LEBMUN ’19 Secretariat Team, we thank you for your interest in our conference. We hope to see all of your eager and excited faces this coming February as we all participate in the experience that is LEBMUN ‘19.
Deputy Secretary General
