In 2015, the Member States of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Within the agenda were defined seventeen Sustainable Development Goals. Now taken conventionally, conferences around the world are expected to proactively address at least one goal. The conference theme for this year's Legatus MUN will be centred around Sustainable Development Goal 16 - Peace, justice and strong institutions.
This theme will permeate through all aspects of the conference. From the guest speakers who address us at opening ceremonies, to the committee topics themselves, a great emphasis will be placed on encouraging delegates to maintain peace, justice and strong institutions.
The conference shall be using the medium of Zoom, a well-known video-conferencing software. We have ensured premium end-to-end encryption for the entire duration of the conference. Every participating delegate must refer to the Teleconferencing section in the Delegate Guide, which would be explaining the rules and guidelines of adaptation of the traditional Model UN proceedings on an online platform.
