Best Delegate is live from Beijing, China where we are covering the WEMUN Expo!
WEMUN is actually an exposition of nine of the most prestigious conferences in the world all in one conference: Berkeley BMUN, Boston University BeanMUN, EuroMUN, Harvard HMUN, U. Penn ILMUNC, U. Chicago MUNUC, Georgetown NAIMUN, WEMUNC, and Yale YMUN. Each conference provides directors to run their conference’s set of committees and are assisted by local students to staff the dais.
WEMUN is attended by 2,000 students; roughly 1,500 are Chinese students interested in studying overseas and about 500 are from around other parts of the world. They’ve all converged into the Grand Epoch Hotel — the resort complex is designed to be a one-sixth replica of the Forbidden City — to debate about global issues, learn about other cultures, and have fun.
We’ll provide full coverage including a highlight on guest speaker Gillian Sorensen from the United Nations Foundation, committees in action, the Global Village, and more!
Editor’s note: Unfortunately, all the photos that Best Delegate’s Kevin Felix Chan took during WEMUN were stored on his laptop’s hard drive and that hard drive managed to die on him while he was in Asia. We’ll hope those photos can be recovered so that they can be used for more WEMUN articles.
