Résumé of the Model United Nations of Lubeque (MUNOL) from the 02. June – 07. June 2014

In the worldwide known annual event of Model United Nations 8 delegates have participated in 2014 from the 02. until the 07. June, namely Arens Eleas, Fischer Jeremy, Kapnas Dimitrios, Korn Konrad, Maurer Vincent, Roquette Simon, Wanderwitz Matthias and Wildenhain Konstantin, which found place in Lubeque, Germany.

After having travelled for approximately 8 hours by train, we finally arrived in the train station of Lubeque. Despite of the quite amusing and obviously funny voyage, its length could not be overseen in the droopy eyes of the proud representatives of Cuba, Guatemala and Palestine. In addition our exhausted group had been forgotten by a staff member of the host school “Thomas Mann Gymnasium”, from whom they should have received their bus tickets on time. With a delay of about 45 minutes and big efforts of trying to communicate with the school, the tickets have been delivered successfully. All expectations have been proven wrong regarding the evening, since there has been a party in the famous bar “Baracio” by the river Trave. Unfortunately a curfew by our teacher prevented us from getting to know all 400 students from around the globe in a single night…

The following days, were formed of many and long, however very interesting, of course formal and vivid speeches, a lot of cooperation, teamwork, running exercise, since everything required of approval, so huge distances within the school had to be covered, but under massive time pressure, but also strengthening the social character via making new friends, sharing interests, phone numbers and Facebook profiles and, last but not least, eating Marzipan!! The memorable, colourful, glamorous and rich in music, taste, mood and imagination nightlife should not be forgotten at this point. We’re convinced that the dancefloors had never experienced such bouncing ever before! 

This year’s hot topic was “Internet, Information and Espionage”, although other thematic specters such as, but not only, “The use of armed unmanned aerial vehicles”,” Violations of the human right to water and sanitation of the Palestinian people”, “Stabilizing the situation in the Ukraine” and “Discussing future prospects of the United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara” were meaningfully debated.

Upon the fact the punishments, which only occurred in case of somebody coming too late to the session, were augmenting the atmosphere in a very eloquent and theatrical way, can be unanimously agreed. Hardly anyone wouldn’t have laughed before the sight of people being obliged to “twerk”, sing Bieber’s “Baby”, perform 70 Push-ups, act like giving birth to a baby (although being a male delegate), steal something from another committee and improvise of a MUNOL song with Dubstep influences, publicly!

So here we stand. MUNOL'14, by far one of the most successful Model United Nations conferences ever organized has come to an end. Resolutions have been drafted, solutions have been found and friendships have been sealed.

Thank you to everyone who made this conference what it has been!

A huge must-do to all students above 10th class!
