Addressing the delegates of Peoples Conference 2017 organized by the PES University’s MUN Society, Professor Rajeev Gowda highlighted upon the significance of MUN. He said that Model United Nations (MUN), is the true simulation of the United Nations & its organs. In this creative simulation of three days, all of you can take up the role of international diplomats who are representatives of countries in various UN bodies including UNICEF, UNESCO, WHO, WTO, UN Security council among others.
He also stated that engagement with MUN and various conferences conducted by MUN societies not only stretches the general knowledge & awareness but also sensitizes all the delegates to the challenging global issues and the intricate challenges of being a global leader. He also spoke to the delegates present about the hard powers and soft powers of the world, especially emphasizing the importance of soft powers throughout history. He encouraged leadership and political awareness through conferences like this and went on to motivate people to pursue Public Policy. He emphasized the power of diplomacy and spoke about nuance in all fields, and how to overcome it.
In his presidential remarks, Dr M R Doreswamy congratulated the organizing team of PES University students for hosting the event and inviting eminent orator like Professor Rajeev Gowda to share his thoughts with them. He said conferences of this kind will imbibe required foundations in terms of verbal communications (in form of debate, deliberations, discussions, negotiations, etc.) He said that sonner or later, these will be required at your work place and MUN is preparing you right from college level itself. He said that, I am given to understand that “Today there is more than 400 conferences that take place in 35 countries”. These activities can boost your self-confidence, accelerate learning across the curriculum, and improve critical thinking and oral communication skills. If more youths who are the hope of our nation take active participation in these conferences, I am very confident that India can progress at a very faster pace.
