Vancouver's Newest Model UN Conference
Hailey May is a policy-changer and good governance advocate with experience working in partnership with UN institutions and youth led organizations. Hailey has advocated for stronger governance at many levels: from the international scale at the UNSG Climate Action Summit in New York and UNFCCC COP25 in Madrid, to the provincial scale through her work with the B.C. Green Caucus and the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia. As the former Managing Director of Youth4Nature and a 2020 Top 25 under 25 Environmentalist in Canada, she works to create sound environmental policy in Canada and across the globe. She knows that a brighter future for everyone requires systems change, and she is dedicated to making it happen in the environmental policy world.
Hailey wishes all OakridgeMUN delegates a productive, meaningful and fruitful two days of environmentally-sound debate and discussion!
Dear Prospective Delegates, Sponsor Teachers, and Parents,
My name is William Wang and on behalf of the Secretariat and Board of Directors, it is my pleasure to serve as your Secretary-General and I am honoured to invite you to the third iteration of Oakridge Model United Nations. Due to the previously-imposed COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to host this year’s iteration of OakridgeMUN in-person and instead will be held virtually this november. Despite these restrictions, the Secretariat will work just as hard to ensure a memorable experience for all delegates, and we hope to make it easily accessible to everyone!
Since the beginning of OakridgeMUN, a rising bi-annual Vancouver-based conference, the Secretariat and Staff have worked tirelessly to incorporate our three key values: Sustainability, Youth Empowerment, and Global Awareness. Our world has been drifting away from these key pillars, and it is our goal to create a safe environment where youths may educate themselves and learn through MUN about these pressing issues facing us today. We have strived consistently to provide a professional Model United Nations experience, believing that MUN is the perfect platform to voice one’s thoughts and beliefs, challenging our previously-held worldviews through the utmost quality of debate.
OakridgeMUN also hopes to facilitate an atmosphere of committee sessions that are available to all, and therefore will be hosting this conference free of charge, with only a $10 deposit as to nurture the environment we hope to create. Our Staff and Secretariat have worked tirelessly for the past few months to make this conference run, with multiple hours put into the decisions over topics, backgrounders, and all to ensure the best possible experience for our delegates. I could not have asked for a better Secretariat and Staff team, and I would like to extend my personal gratitude to all.
It is my sincere hope and promise to present a new and exciting experience, one to remember for all my delegates, Staff, and Secretariat members at OakridgeMUN III. If you at any point have any questions or concerns regarding the conference, please feel free to reach out and I look forward to meeting all of you in November of 2021!
