Dear Prospective Delegates, Sponsors Teachers, and Parents,
My name is Emily Chen, and it is my distinct pleasure to serve as your Secretary-General of Oakridge Model United Nations II. On behalf of the Staff and the Secretariat team, it is my honour to welcome you to the second iteration of OakridgeMUN, to be held from March 13th to 14th, 2021. Due to the restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to hold our conference virtually; we hope despite the current situation, we can make our conference accessible to everyone!
OakridgeMUN II, as a rising bi-annual Vancouver based conference, includes three key values: Sustainability, Youth Empowerment and Global Awareness. Model United Nations provides a great environment where youths can learn about prevalent social and global issues and challenges our views through structured debate with logic and reasoning; Since this is such a valuable experience for myself and the rest of my team, we hope to share this experience with as many people as possible! This is why OakridgeMUN II will be a free conference, we will only be charging a deposit of $10 to ensure everyone is able to come to our conference!
Our Staff and Secretariat Team has worked tirelessly for the past months to make this conference happen, many hours have gone into this website, our committee topics and backgrounders, all to ensure the best possible experience for our delegates. I could not have asked for a better team to work with for this conference and I hope all of our delegates can feel the effort that our team has put in.
I promise to do my absolute best to present a memorable and exciting experience for all my delegates, Staff and Secretariat members at OakridgeMUN II. My email is always open for any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out at any point. I look forward to meeting all of you in March 2021!
