Conference Theme “Common bonds for a common endeavour”
The theme this year encapsulates values that have underpinned the United Nations since its foundation, as well as the linkages that have grown throughout the wider Model United Nations community. The values of the United Nations, fostering linkages across diverse cultures and communities, reconciling divides, and supporting our shared humanity, have for decades been promoted by Model United Nations conferences around the world, and since 1995 by the Asia-Paciﬁc Model United Nations Conference. This year being the International Year of Youth draws particular emphasise to youth issues, and the unrivalled opportunity that youth engagement and empowerment brings to the eﬀorts to overcome the great challenges of our age. AMUNC is both a celebration and demonstration of youth empowerment and the development of the leaders of the future from across the Asia-Paciﬁc, and from around the world. The concepts of global citizenship, international community, and empowered dialogue to reach innovative solutions to global challenges, are what has been the cornerstone of the AMUNC experience. This evolution in themes, of We the Peoples in 2010, and Towards Global Civilisation in 2009, culminating this year with Common bonds for a common endeavour, reﬂects the progression of global dialogue and understanding of the dynamic world we live in, while paralleling the coming of age of a generation of youth leaders. Coinciding with the International Year of Youth, the slogan 'our year, our voice' aligns with the objectives of AMUNC, of fostering a sense of empowerment to become involved and advocate solutions to global challenges, and support delegates with a responsive and caring conference environment to achieve this. Diversity in thinking and tolerance in debate, contributing to enhancing global peace and development by the next generation, has been, and continues to be, the purpose of the AsiaPaciﬁc Model United Nations Conference
