Welcome to the Economic and Social Council. The topics that we will debate are extremely relevant as there are today rising tensions in some areas, such as in Palestine and Israel, and a way to mediate these tensions and prevent war is increasingly necessary.
On a personal note, I am a 15-year-old 11th-grade student at the Primo-Levi-School in Berlin. BERMUN 2021 will be my eighth MUN conference and my fourth one as a chair. Apart from participating in MUN, I also enjoy playing soccer and reading.
Being involved in MUN has improved my public speaking skills, boosted my confidence and helped me look at issues from different perspectives. I hope that you will use this experience to speak up and thereby benefit both yourself and the committee.
I look forward to meeting you at the conference!
Assistant President of the Economic and Social Council
