Let’s take a look at what’s currently happening at IMMUNS 2021…
Welcome message from our Secretary and Sub-Secretary Generals:
Good afternoon delegates, advisors, guests, etc.
In times of disparity, it is of great importance not to forget what is important and relevant for the greater good of the world.
While being quarantined, it is certain that everyone has learned to appreciate the little things in life. Yet in appreciating all of those small details, one must not lose sight of the big picture. Issues around the world have become increasingly present as the aid and attention from international countries have faltered. In our never-ending search to “Make it Happen” the MUN Program ASFM, led by the SG/SSG and the advisor, is proud to announce that we will be hosting IMMUNS 2021 from February 18-20.
Despite the different circumstances, the Secretariat department of IMMUNS is hard at work producing an academically rigorous and prestigious simulation. Although we will be going online, there is no reason to decrease the quality of the event. As always, you can count on amazing background papers, chairs, and organization while we debate topics ranging from the abuse of Uyghurs in China all the way to the Cuban Missile Crisis. We look forward to seeing you on February 18, 19, and 20 for IMMUNS 2021. The first-ever virtual IMMUNS event.
Welcome message from our MUN Advisor:
It is always a pleasure to WELCOME all of you, more so now, that covid, zoom, and safe distance are keeping us physically apart.
Thank you all very much for participating in IMMUNS.
Thank you to the loyal advisors and delegates who keep coming every year, and welcome to the new ones that hopefully will continue participating in the years to come.
THANK YOU my dear SECRETARIAT and MUN students for working so hard to make IMMUNS 2021 happen!
We thought that this pandemic was going to last a couple of months.
We thought that it would go away any moment, but now we know that this situation is not ending soon.
We were forced to learn how to study in distance learning; how to do home office, and even how to socialize taking care of those around us.
Just like the Yin and Yang, everything in life has a balance between the positive and the negative. In this case, regardless of the sadness, and the uncertainty, the pandemic has somehow made us stronger, more resilient, more united, and has allowed us to restructure all areas in our lives.
Even if we are using all the modern day digital resources, even if we are not in the school building, remember that the essence of a well-prepared delegate, the eagerness to participate, and the positive attitude will always shine and go beyond IMMUNS.
Regardless of zoom, breakout rooms, and all technological features, I really hope that you make the most out of these two days.
Enjoy IMMUNS 2021. STAY SAFE, AND MAKE IT HAPPEN!
