Letter of Appreciation
Global Confluence Model United Nation of Prabhavati Padamshi Soni International Junior College provides a rare opportunity for young minds to learn about global politics and policies in a dynamic world to achieve the national interests.
The broad foreign policy framework whether bilateral, regional or multilateral is deeply rooted in the art of constructive engagement over aggression, diplomatic outreach on the issues of global dimensions and enhancing coordination in a wide array of areas. GCMUN is contributing immensely in sharpening the young minds in foreign policy priorities and challenges with a clear objective to enable them in learning contemporary realities of global governance and global trade practices. GCMUN is offering a robust and multifaceted engagement platform on which youth seek to build a more modern global perception, new confidence to redefine the role of United Nations committees in the wake of post cold war alignments. Today's youth dream ofa world free from strife, a world without war and suitable functioning as well as the efficacy of international cooperation. GCMUN through enlightening discussion is trying to project decision-making mechanisms to pursue strategic objectives.
Under the dynamic leadership of Divith Chowdhary, the 7th Edition of GCMUN (2023-24) of PPSIJC is shaping the young minds to tackle issues emanating from rapidly changing geopolitical landscape and visible shift in political, economic and cultural ties across the world. It is my hope that the GCMUN, Mumbai Chapter will continue to ignite young and thinking minds with common commitment of Vasudhaiv Kutumbkam.
Message from Chief Advisor
I, Divith Chowdhary, the chief advisor, feel tremendously honoured, as I proudly present the glorious 7th edition of the GCMUN; here, we strongly believe that joining hands and uniting is essential to thrive in our world. Therefore I am proud to announce our motto for this year’s GCMUN, “unify nations, inspire change”
Despite remaining a simulation of the real world, model U.N. expanded my perspective on issues beyond our borders and pushed me to be an active citizen in our world, and at GCMUN, we hope to do the same for you.
As we look around the world today, we see so much division and conflict. Countries are divided by political ideologies, religious differences, and cultural traditions. But if we can come together and focus on what unites us rather than what divides us, we can inspire change and create a better future for all.
"Unifying Nations, Inspiring Change" is a call to action for all of us. It asks us to put aside our differences and work towards a common goal. It challenges us to see beyond our own borders and to recognize the humanity in others.
When we work together as a global community, we can make a real difference in the world. We can build an equitable society where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
This empathy and rationale are aspects I aspire all our delegates to develop through this edition of our beloved MUN. I look forward to seeing all our delegates on the day of the conference: packed with passion, resilience and zeal, ready to resolve issues with a diplomatic and sophisticated stance.
Over the past seven years, GCMUN has had many successes and challenges. Despite those multiple challenges, we strive to be a bolder and better version of GCMUN each consecutive year. We long to inspire each of the delegates who are a part of GCMUN, for without our struggles, we would not be the outstanding and incredible versions of ourselves that we are today.
Here at GCMUN, we construct a safe path for you to engulf yourself with knowledge and develop an experience so wonderful that you will gracefully become the change in the world you wish to see.
At GCMUN, we promise to award you with an experience that transforms you into a more diplomatic, informed, and confident individual. I can wholeheartedly say that you will leave this conference as an unparalleled and splendid person you never even imagined you could be. You will leave this room with memories and companions to last you a lifetime.
To conclude, I want to emphasise that you come to GCMUN with a thirst to bring change and a heart yearning for a better world. Thus, we assure to bestow upon you a cornucopia of possibilities and apprehension, helping you to achieve this remarkable dream.
I take immense delight in being a member of an organisation that simulates global issues and models real-world challenges but also inspires greater awareness and change in the future generation of global leaders. Through our carefully curated agendas, excellent hospitality, and highly knowledgeable panel of chairpersons, GCMUN aims to sensitise as well as inspire.
I am beyond grateful for the response we’ve gotten so far, and am heartened to see such empowered and astounding delegates among us. I truly hope that the experience you take away from GCMUN 2023 is empowering and provoking.
