Dear Colleagues, esteemed Participants and distinguished Guests,

It is with pleasure that I would like to welcome you to the Genoa Model United Nations of 2017.

The city that will host you in February 2017 is one of unique personality and beauty that is sometimes manifest and other times hidden. As you wind your way through the narrow “vicoli” of Genoa’s ancient port, you will uncover many unique landmarks and experience the traditions that the locals upkeep. It is a city that thrives where the hills and sea meet, and is this very strategic location that has allowed it to serve as an important historic portal of commerce in the Mediterranean. It is hence with great pleasure that we welcome you to our city.

Sustainable Development is one of the most important and challenging issues facing the entire world. Sustainable Development is defined as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” (WCED, 1987).

From Italy to India and Australia to Tibet, local populations constantly have to adapt the way they live in order to achieve a sustainable, and prosperous future. In a rapidly changing world, how can we work together to come up with solutions to the numerous environmental challenges we face? To put this in context, we are reducing forests by 375 km2 per day and we are using 50% more raw materials than the earth can supply. As you can see, this subject is of utmost importance.

Sustainable development has been discussed at the UN and Member States have agreed on 17 goals that touch all areas of the globe: economically, politically, socially and environmentally. While some progress has been made, this is a long term problem that will require collaboration and creativity to solve.

It is our goal for GeMUN 2017 to come to terms with these many, hidden, multifaceted aspects of such a broad topic and it is with great excitement and anticipation that our team has decided upon the topic. We are hoping for fresh, new ideas and solutions to help out world progress towards a brighter future.

We are confident that this edition of GeMUN will be both fun and fruitful and I know that the entire GeMUN team is already working hard towards this goal.

Luca Boletto
Secretary General, GeMUN 2017
