A LETTER FROM ORGANIZING COMMITTEE MEMBERS
Dear Esteemed Delegates,
It is my absolute honour to invite you all to TOYO.MUN Virtual Conference 3.0 in March 19 - 20, 2022, 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, our MUN community also seeks to provide a unique opportunity to practice international relations, politics and economics in an interactive manner. Having a cosmopolitan academic environment here in Toyo University, the TOYO.MUN organizing committee views the upcoming conferences as the 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 have decided to once again host an online MUN Conference which will still be open internationally and be held on March 19-20, 2022 via Discord and Zoom, with the theme: “Towards a Future of Sustainable Development Diplomacy”. Toyo Model UN Virtual Conference 3.0 seeks to be an open ground for both people from local communities and students, and universities across the world to interact, network and collaborate. In connection to this, the Toyo Model United Nations Council partnered with the University Mobility in Asia and the Pacific (UMAP) upon the realization on reaching more universities and delegates not just to Japan, but also to the world.
Toyo MUN Virtual Conference 3.0 aims to cater the following objectives:
To be able to open an opportunity for students to participate co-curricular and academic activities;
To be able to introduce public speaking and diplomacy to their profession and future career;
To be able to empower their social and civic well-being;
To be able to enhance and/ or establish their relationship between peers and friends; and,
To be able to open up their point of view 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 2022 Organizing Committee is pleased to present you the Delegate Handbook. In this guide, you will find an overview of 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 in order to gain insight in your selected House Committee, its mandates and objectives as well as further research and guidelines in writing the papers. Delegate Handbook and Background Guide, written by our Guest Chairs, will soon be available online at our website.
Please prepare and enjoy yourself 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, on behalf of the Toyo MUN Organizing Committee, I offer my best wishes for our future delegates in TOYO.MUN Virtual Conference 3.0, and look forward to welcoming you in March!
TOYO.MUN 2022 Organizing Committee members,
