For the 8th¬†consecutive time, NSIT has been invited by the Harvard University to represent the Delhi University and the country at the 64th¬†edition of the Harvard National Model United Nations Conference which is scheduled to be held in Boston in February 2018. Hosting about 3500 delegates from over 90 countries, HNMUN is the largest, oldest and the most prestigious MUN conference of its kind in the world. It provides students with the unique opportunity to¬†engage in dialogue and deliberate over social, political, economic and other matters of global concern.
The Conference is structured in the form of various committees, featuring student delegates from all participant nations representing the interests of their various assigned countries. This allows it to offer a tremendous platform for the exchange of ideas between students from culturally diverse backgrounds. The Conference provides an opportunity for young students to develop into future leaders after being exposed to a variety of pertinent global issues and their many accompanying perspectives. The conference would also be attended by distinguished speakers from renowned universities, international think-tanks, dignitaries from national governments, as well as representatives and officers from various organs & offices of the United Nations.
NSIT has had a rich tradition of winning top¬†honours¬†and accolades at HNMUN. Last year, the delegation from NSIT had bagged the prestigious Outstanding Delegate Award and two Honourable Mentions. This year too, they‚Äôre hoping to keep up with this legacy by sending an extremely talented team of 13 individuals, selected from over 200 applicants after rigorous rounds of auditions. Some of the committees they will be participating in are OECD (The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development), WHO (World Health Organisation), HGA (Historical General Assembly), SPECPOL (Special Political and Disarmament Committee), DISEC (Disarmament and security Committee), SOCHUM (Social Humanitarian and Cultural Committee), IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency), to name a few.
