Dear delegates, press members, honorable advisors and valuable board members;

    My name is Cevdet Özen, and it is my honor –as the Secretary General- to declare that the second annual session of Sanko School Model United Nations Conference will be held between 19th and 21st April, 2019 in Private Sanko Schools, Gaziantep, Turkey.

    Last year, we had the privilege of organizing the first Model UN conference in our city. With the help of you, esteemed participants, and our valuable academic and organization teams, we succeeded in the best way. This year, with our Director General İbrahim Bartık and our new academic and organization teams, we are ready for a new journey: SANMUN ’19.

    Recently, the world has been unstable and unpredictable with wars and conflicts rising in various countries. In the second edition of SANMUN, we are going to be focusing on maintaining peace and development for a longer term than our predecessors did. We are not only going to solve the current problems, but also preventing possible problems of our near future. Doing so, in this conference, we are looking forward to predicting the unpredictable, showing the world what they would not expect, unveiling the future.

    This year, our conference will consist of six different committees: three UN councils and three special committees. While Security Council solves some of the most crucial issue concerning the world, ECOSOC and HRC will be debating how to make our planet a better place to live in. The Future Technology Summit will have its second session and create new long-term projects. The International Olympic Committee will be busy with finding ways to broaden the experience of the biggest sports event in the world. Our sixth and last committee will be the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization, developing recognition for the minorities and discriminated people groups.

    Last of all, I invite you all to the results of the hard work of our valuable team in the metropolis of Gaziantep: SANMUN ’19.


    Cevdet Özen

    Secretary General of
