A LETTER FROM ORGANIZING COMMITTEE MEMBERS
Dear Esteemed Delegates,
It is our absolute honour to invite you all to TOYO MUN Virtual Conference 5.0 on March 16 - 17, 2024, hosted by Toyo Model United Nations Community from Toyo University, Tokyo, Japan.
Not only is TOYO MUN one of the most accessible conferences offered in the Japanese MUN community, but it is also a unique opportunity to practice international negotiations, politics and economics interactively. Having a cosmopolitan academic environment here at Toyo University, the TOYO MUN organizing committee views the upcoming conferences as an opportunity to connect students from a range of cross-cultural backgrounds together. Our team sincerely hopes that these dynamic, informative debates will not only serve academic and idea-exchanging purposes but also serve as a platform for delegates to form meaningful connections and friendships. Therefore, it is our priority to ensure that the conference will be organized to the highest standards.
The Toyo Model United Nations Council has decided to once again host an online MUN Conference on March 16-17, 2024 via Zoom under the theme: “Navigating Crisis: Lessons from the Past for the Path Forward.”. Toyo Model UN Virtual Conference 5.0 seeks to be an open arena for both local communities and universities worldwide to interact, network and collaborate. In connection with this, the Toyo Model United Nations Council partnered with the University Mobility in Asia and the Pacific (UMAP) upon the realization of reaching more universities and delegates not just to Japan, but also around the world.
Toyo MUN Virtual Conference 5.0 aims to cater for the following objectives:
To be an open opportunity for students to engage in co-curricular and academic activities;
To introduce public speaking and diplomacy to the participants' profession and future careers;
To be able to empower students' social and civic well-being;
To be open ground to enhance and/or establish meaningful relationships between students from around the globe;
To be a platform to explore new points of view and apply them to a much wider scale.
In order to better equip our future delegates with detailed information regarding the basics of MUN in general and our community and the upcoming conference in particular, TOYO MUN 2024 Organizing Committee is pleased to present you the Delegate Handbook. In this guide, you will find an overview of the committee structure, guidelines for writing an excellent Position Paper and Resolution Paper, and the newly revised Rules of Procedure. We also invite our delegates to consult the Committee Background Guide in your preparation to gain insight into your selected House Committee, its mandates and objectives as well as further research and guidelines in writing the papers. The Delegate Handbook and Background Guide, written by our Guest Chairs, will soon be available online at our website.
Please prepare to engage in world-changing debates as you seize this amazing opportunity to participate in one of the top MUN conferences in Japan. In that spirit of partnership, we, Toyo MUN Organizing Committee, offer our best wishes for our future delegates at TOYO MUN Virtual Conference 5.0, and look forward to welcoming you in March!
