Jakarta, June 28th 2014 – Jakarta Model United Nations (JakartaMUN) 2014 wrapped up and left deep memories in the heart of every participant and also the organizing committees. After the opening with Mr. Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, Executive Task of Governor of DKI Jakarta in the first day, the second day of JakartaMUN 2014 which held on June 24th 2014 hit the first session of Model United Nations series. The event was started with the Conference Zero as the place for the first-timer participants who have not experienced MUN to learn deeply about the art of diplomacy and negotiation in ModelUN. The topics chosen for Conference Zero were very diverse and popular, such as the topic of superhero and movie, so that the participants were easy to understand on how MUN works.
After the Conference Zero, the Conference series began. There were 6 councils in JakartaMUN 2014, they were The World Health Organization (WHO) which discussed about HIV/AIDS, Malaria and other disease; United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) which talked about eradicating literacy; United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) which discussed about child mortality; United Nations Women (UN-Women) which talked about rape; United Nations World Food Program (UN-WFP) which talked about extreme poverty and world hunger; and the last was United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD) which talked about the green economy.
Following the one day full with debate and diplomacy, all participants were entertained with one of JakartaMUN 2014 social event, which was Gala Dinner. In Gala Dinner, all participants had a special dinner in a round table together with the Directors and Assistant Directors of each council in order to get to know each other better. Gala Dinner was held in Museum Nasional Indonesia. All participants were also entertained by Band and solo performance.
