LETTER FROM THE SECRETARY-GENERAL
To the Members of the WorldMUN Community,
On behalf of the organizing committee, it is my great pleasure to announce that the twenty-eighth session of Harvard World Model United Nations will be held in Madrid, Spain, from the 18th to the 22nd of March 2019.
It is here in Madrid that history can be found in every corner of the city—ranging from ruins of an Ancient Egyptian temple to modern business towers—painting a story that is as vast as it is unique.
It is here in Madrid that one can witness the intersection of a blooming economy and cultural proliferation: a testament of the multiple influences that have shaped this unique city from its founding to the present.
And it is here that you will find a city and a country that is eager to welcome 2000 delegates from over 100 countries to engage in debate and to forge the strong relationships that make WorldMUN so special.
As an emblematic city with European values at present yet deeply rooted in Muslim origin, Madrid does not only represent the values of diversity, internationalism, and multiculturalism that WorldMUN emphasizes—it promises to provide the resources, venues, and experiences that will take this year’s conference to new heights.
Delegates will get the chance to simulate the work of diplomats in committees that span a variety of topics, time periods, and geographical regions; they will get to experience the vibrant nightlife that Madrid is famous for at social events hosted at multiple high-profile sites; and they will get to experience an internationally-renowned city that WorldMUN has never been to before.
I could not be more excited for the year ahead and look forward to seeing you in Madrid in 2019!
