HISTORY OF

MELBOURNE Indigenous Australians lived across the continent in different territories, known as nations, each with their own distinct languages, cultures and customs. At the time of the first European settlement, there were no fewer than 300 languages spoken, with even more dialects unique to each nation. Historians estimate that the rich tradition shared by the Indigenous population, stems back to around 40,000 years ago, and even with the possibility of existing as far back as 125,000 years ago. Indigenous Australians and their strong relationship with their land was evident through their spiritual life and culture, which was further exemplified through dance, art, music, storytelling and traditions. Unfortunately, the legal concept of ‘Terra Nullius’ would prove to have catastrophic repercussions on the native population.

unassisted migrants had arrived in Victoria, hoping to strike gold. Previously commonly referred to as ‘hell’ by its leaders, the gold rush transformed a struggling colony into a rich city that boasted magnificent public architecture, gracious parks and opulent mansions. Victoria’s new vision included new technological wonders, the establishment of the 8 hour working day and the rise of unionism. The State Library of Victoria became the first free and egalitarian place funded by the Government and not private individuals. Similarly, the University of Melbourne was one of the first secular educational institutions to be built.

HIGH LEVEL YOUTH SUMMIT ON MILLENNIUM DEVELOPMENT GOALS COMMITTEE The High Level Youth Summit on Millennium Development Goals Committee (‘MDG Committee’) is a working group that aims to address an issue of global importance: the future of global development post2015. In 2000, 189 nations commenced the new millennium with a promise to free people from extreme poverty. In order to honour this promise, signatories to the Millennium Declaration would commit themselves to addressing eight factors that were identified as perpetuating the divide between the developed and developing. These factors, in an unprecedented demonstration of global cooperation, were transformed into goals – the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). In 2015, the MDGs are set to expire. Although it is undeniable that we have come a long way, a world in which every member of the global community has access to minimum standards of living, and where every state has the means and methods to secure a sustainable future, is not yet a

reality. As 2015 quickly approaches, we are faced with a dilemma: where to from here? Unfortunately,

opinions

regarding

...........................................................

“What changes do you think the world needs to make in order to eradicate extreme poverty and secure a sustainable future?”

............................................................ the design of the post-2015 development framework are divided. Some argue that the current goals are sufficient, and that all that is needed is renewed enthusiasm and commitment to attaining the vision embodied by the MDGs. Others suggest that the current framework is incapable of achieving true, sustainable development and that we should adopt a new paradigm. To this end, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon’s High Level Panel on Global Sustainability recommended the introduction of

15

a set of Sustainable Development Goals. Then there is the possibility of adopting one more goal, a ninth goal, to address the shortcomings of the current agenda. Resolving the post-2015 dilemma is no easy task; however, regardless of preference for the future of global development, one thing is certain: the resolution of this issue is more urgent than ever. Members of the MDG Committee will be asked: what changes do you think the world needs to make in order to eradicate extreme poverty and secure a sustainable future? Delegates sitting on the MDG Committee will be required to work together in order to draft a Declaration, similar to that engendered by the historic Millennium Summit in New York in 2000, that represents the global youth’s perspective on the future of international development and development strategies.


Resolutions with an

Im act

The

driving force of WorldMUN Melbourne 2013 is a desire to ascertain the views of youth globally in relation to issues that impact the international community, and to promulgate those views within the international arena. Utilising our partnerships and networks, Melbourne 2013 is determined to ensure that the ideas and

proposals produced by delegates have a greater impact after the conclusion of the debate. WorldMUN is a vehicle for youth participation in global discourse, representing an opportunity to integrate the views of youth into decision-making processes the world over. In 2013, delegates will descend upon

Melbourne to discuss topics ranging from armed conflict to global developm. The resolutions produced have the capacity to embody the valuable perspectives of the global youth – the combined voice of over 2000 students from more than 80 different countries.


Youth participation has finally gained the recognition that it deserves, with world leaders acknowledging the importance of youth participation in global politics. The General Assembly, in A/RES/66/121, has recently stated that it [r]ecognizes that young people in all countries are both a major human resource for development and key agents for social change, economic

development and technological innovation ‌ It is our desire to promote the effective and meaningful participation of delegates in the decision-making process, and we have developed a number of partnerships, founded on a mutual desire to engage with young people, that will enable us to promote resolutions following the conclusion of the conference.

One day we will inherit this world, and as its future leaders, we have the responsibility to shape its future. At WorldMUN 2013, the Resolutions with an Impact initiative will provide you with the opportunity to have your voice heard, to plan for the future, and to reinvent your world.

STUDENT JOURNALISTS APPLICATIONS WorldMUN is the world’s largest student-led youth conference where more than 2000 like-minded student delegates from over 80 countries simulate the UN and confront pressing international issues, drafting resolutions to trigger innovative change and creating unbreakable bonds across continents in the process, therein shaping our future leaders. Initiated by Harvard University, WorldMUN has travelled to 21 different cities over the span of 21 years, and for the first time is coming to Australia – it will be held in Melbourne from 18 – 22 March this year at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. Our mission is to offer and empower youth from around the world with a space to articulate their views on international issues of importance, and encouraging communication, cooperation and critical thinking about the world they inhabit as the global community moves toward a new era of development. With 2015 fast approaching, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) have been chosen as our Conference theme. WorldMUN is distinct from any other Model United Nations. Described by The Times (UK) as ‘superior to any other university program in the world’, the magnitude of this conference simultaneously heightens the quality of the debate. We believe in expanding the debate beyond the WorldMUN Committee Sessions to the streets of Melbourne, energising and inspiring the youth in Australia to sow the seeds for change in their communities. Additionally, in 2013 WorldMUN is partnering with Study Melbourne, the State Government of Victoria, AusAID, RMIT University, Monash University, UNICEF, the Melbourne Convention and Visitors Bureau, the City of Melbourne and is working in collaboration with One Just World. The WorldMUN Office of Communications and Marketing is now recruiting Student Journalists to observe and document our monumental conference. All WorldMUN Student Journalists will receive complete access to the events, including committee rooms, free of charge. The option to purchase social event tickets will also be made available; these are usually restricted exclusively for delegates. In attending both our prestigious Opening and Closing ceremonies, accepted applicants will be amongst prominent and well-known senior figures from the Australian Government, United Nations, as well as NGOs. Moreover, some student journalists will be selected to attend our seminars and workshops, and one outstanding student journalist, who will be awarded with exclusive journalist status, will be selected based on their application and preparation to attend a private cocktail reception with keynote speakers and key sponsors/partners. Additionally, all Student Journalists will receive personalised certificates of participation for their effort, as well as letters of reference or recommendation upon request, based on performance.

MEET THE MDG DELEGATES Desiree Pina Delegate

My name is Desiree Pina and I am a delegate at the High Level Youth Summit on the Millennium Development Goals Committee. I have always been interested in international affairs, human development and human rights. I am so grateful of having the opportunity to be a member of this committee. I am looking forward in working with delegates from all over the world and come up with an excellent resolution. I was born and raised in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. I am a third year Law student in the University of Navarra in Pamplona, Spain. With hopes of graduating next year and pursuing a masters in International Relations and Human Rights; I dream of one day working in the United Nations and making a positive impact in my country and the whole world. I have always been interested in learning new languages; I speak Spanish, English, Italian and French. If I had the chance to choose a superpower it would be to speak EVERY language in the world, including American Sign

20

Language. I am very interesting in travelling, making new friends and learning about different cultures. My best experience so far was when I went to do community service in India two years ago. Working in an orphanage with kids that have been victims of child trafficking made me realise how fortunate I am. I decided to do community service to help others, little did I know that it ended up helping myself as well. My main goals in life, apart from one day working in the UN, are learning to speak fluent Arabic, learning to play the piano and opening an NGO for helping disadvantage kids all over the world. I attended WorldMUN 2012 in Vancouver and took home great academic input, new friends, great memories and a new perspective in life. I am looking forward in doubling those experiences at WorldMUN 2013 in Melbourne, Australia.


Bonnie Chiu Delegate

“My Bonnie is over the ocean...” - does this song sound familiar to you? Well, this is my song. My friends tease me about it because I am often, literally, “over the ocean”. I travel a lot, and my passion for travelling is one of the many reasons that brought me to Model UN.

making. But there are bunches of socially-aware business students, myself included, who want to change the world. The business way of changing the world is through social entrepreneurship. I am joining the Social Venture Challenge at WorldMUN with my social enterprise (http://lensational.hk). I am also really interested in human rights, which is why I am working part-time for Amnesty International now.

I am a final year undergraduate from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. My major is Global Business Studies, which is an internationally-collaborated program among three schools – my university, Copenhagen Business School and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. During my three years of undergraduate studies, I have spent two semesters abroad in the two partner universities. The most fascinating thing about exchange is to meet people of all sorts of cultures. I am really excited for the opportunity to interact with people from all over the world at WorldMUN.

If you love travelling, social entrepreneurship, human rights, politics… or just having fun – please reach out to me. I can’t wait to be “over the ocean” in two weeks’ time!

Being a business student, I get the question a lot – Why am I interested in saving the world? The stereotype of business students is that they only care about money

.......................................................................................... WorldMAP Ambassadors Program

.......................................................................................... The WorldMAP Ambassadors program has helped advocate the WorldMUN spirit around the world. The program started in November of 2012 and has resulted to be a hugely successful initiative, bringing 13 talented and ambitious delegates together to amass over 350 delegates from around the world. Consistently working to promote WorldMUN and increase both awareness and exposure for the cause, the Melbourne Host Directorate has worked closely with these ambassadors, obtaining detailed weekly progress reports and guiding ambassadors individually with feedback and help through both emails and social media platforms. Even after official registration deadlines, our ambassadors have continued recruiting and assisting delegates with other visa and accommodation queries, being an invaluable part of our overall recruitment process. Below are the Ambassadors names and the countries they represent: Lauditta Humaira: Indonesia Lily Linglie Zhang: China Kanij Fatima Annie: Bangladesh Caroline Yang: Taiwan Jona Gjini: Albania Natalia Salas: Spain Clive Lee: Hong Kong Bianca Nieves: Romania Paul Schliefsteiner: Austria Catarina Silva: Portugal David Wong: Singapore/ Washington DC Elie El Kallab: Lebanon Mehdi Nassih: Morocco The ambassadors have enjoyed their roles and continue to develop lifelong skills. For Lauditta Humaira, our Indonesian Ambassador, “being an ambassador for this event is such a very special honour… MUNs, especially international scale of MUN, could open up a great opportunity for every student to help them and practice their important skills to be used in their future…the best thing [about] being a WMUN Ambassador is that I can give this opportunity... to every student in Indonesia.” Moreover, Elie El Kallab, our Lebanese Ambassador, generated interest and attention through various speeches to University students and even partaking in TV interviews. He believes he has benefited from the conference, as he believes he has “gained new and valuable friendships”. We are very grateful for all the hard work and commendable efforts of our ambassadors. They are certainly responsible for spreading the WorldMUN spirit and helping our conference obtain delegates from countries that have not even previously attended WorldMUN before, which will add a depth and diversity to a heightened level of debate throughout the Conference. To our invaluable Ambassadors, we say thank you! 22

I wake up early every Friday to get to read The Resolution as soon as I wake up, it has made me even more excited for WorldMUN. Being a Sydney-sider I find the tips on things to do in Melbourne particularly useful. It was a dream come true being featured in this publication last week and I want to thank the editors once more for their tireless dedication and hard work that make this newsletter possible every week. Jon Grossman University of Sydney

First and foremost, on behalf of the whole Harvard team, I would like to say how much we have enjoyed the publications of The Resolution and appreciate the work done by the Office of Media and Design. Though we find ourselves thousands of miles away from Melbourne, The Resolution continues to illuminate the beautiful host city of our conference and increases our already grand excitement with each coming issue. These publications breathe life into the substantive and social elements that make World Model Unite Nations a truly unique experience. Learning about Melbourne’s extensive coffee

culture in the past issue was also a relief considering I no longer need to fear judgment about my borderline questionable coffee consumption. Looking forward to fitting right in. The Harvard team is gearing up for the final push towards conference. We are hosting our last round of training sessions, publishing update papers, sifting through hundreds of position papers, making final touches on crisis plans, responding to mountains of emails, and ensuring those suits and dresses are pressed to perfection. From the perspective of an Under-Secretary-General, it is exhilarating seeing the reality of each committee approaching full form with each coming day. On top of our substantive preparations, the Harvard team has taken to the dance floor to gear up for our annual Cabaret performance. I won’t give away too many details to the competition, but this year’s performance proves to be both classy and risqué. Stay tuned. It’s hard to believe that WorldMUN 2013, a conference at the heart of the Harvard and Host team for over a year now, is nearly two weeks away. To say that the Harvard team is excited is an understatement. Thanks to the work of both teams and the connections provided by The Resolution, the WorldMUN dream has never been too distant. Delegates, we hope you’re as excited as we are. Counting down the days to meeting you all soon! Michael Chilazi Under-Secretary-General of the Specialized Agencies
