At the 1964 Summer Olympics, South Africa was boycotted because of its apartheid policies, preventing it from participating in the Olympics. Decades later, apartheid is finally a thing of the past in South Africa. In the 2008 Beijing Olympics, director Zhang Yimou stunned the world with the opening ceremony with the theme of Chinese civilization, marking another change for China on the international stage.


It has been more than a hundred years since the Olympic Games were held in Athens in 1896. At the beginning, only 13 countries and 311 athletes participated. Today, it has developed into a large-scale international event with tens of thousands of athletes and 339 events.


The "Basic Principles" of the Olympic Charter express the desire to "educate youth through sport without discrimination, in the Olympic spirit - understanding one another in a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fairness - for a peaceful and better world. make a contribution". Although the official spirit of the Austrian side is non-political, the annual Olympic Games are actually an important test of national strength and politics. Because every time an Olympic Games is held, it means that the country has enough strength and configuration to welcome different audiences from all over the world. At the same time, the Olympic Games are also an opportunity for athletes from different countries to show their training achievements and that of the same country. The location of each Olympic Games will affect the country's political and diplomatic power.

Committee: Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM)

Topic: Harnessing Cultural Heritage for Sustainable Development

Delegations: 40 seats, Single Delegation

Humans review their history while achieving new development. Cultural heritage as the medium of history and culture should contribute itself and to be the critical facilitator of sustainable development. It is also the contemporary legacy of people from history, and it is chosen by society to exist .


Looking at Machu Picchu in Peru, the Great Wall of China and the Acropolis of Athens in Greece, how can these heritages contribute to sustainable development efficiently is the global consensus question. Sustainability is one of the five pillars of the Framework for Action on Cultural Heritage , which highlights its potential to enhance social capital, boost economic growth and secure environmental sustainability. Culture and cultural heritage can help to achieve inclusive and sustainable development. UNESCO has funded several heritage for development projects through the 'Millennium Development Goals Achievement Fund' collaborating with other United Nations organizations and domestic partners all over the world during 2008 to 2013 and it sheds light on multifaceted aspects of cultural heritage for sustainable development by discussing key achievements and common pitfalls. These projects are particularly relevant for an investigation of this kind as they incorporated many ideas and conc erns that were later included in the 2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and their results were also used by UNESCO to provide evidence on the relevance of culture and heritage during the negotiations for defining the SDGs.


The Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM), is the Third Committee of the United Nations General Assembly. It focuses on issues dealing with fundamental human rights in the international community. SOCHUM was founded in 1945 in reaction to the establishment of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights. The Third Committee promotes and enforces basic freedoms and ideals meant to be enjoyed by the entire international community such as the right to life, the expression of cultures, the freedom of political participation, the protection of children's rights, and the promotion of social development, among many others. Delegates need to represent countries with different backgrounds and based on this information to analyze the most suitable plan to harness cultural heritage for sustainable development.

Committee: United Nations Security Council

Topic: Protection of civilians in armed conflict

Seat setting: 30 seats, single representative

Working Language: Traditional Chinese (Mandarin)


"There is nothing good in war, except its ending."


Artillery fire and blood and tears are the key words of war disputes. The other side of war is loss: loss of home, loss of medical assistance, loss of access to education...


As one of the main culprits that lead to poverty, famine and social unrest, armed conflict remains a problem that deserves the attention of the global community. Today, millions of helpless civilians are still intimidated, abused and even killed each year as a result of terrorist attacks and armed conflict. In February 2021, after the Myanmar army seized power, a civil war broke out in Myanmar, and tens of thousands of civilians died in political violence and armed conflicts; in May 2021, a serious conflict broke out between Israel and armed groups in the Gaza Strip, resulting in the displacement of many families and thousands of casualties. . In January 2022, Daesh militants launched large-scale violent attacks and clashes in Syria, causing local residents, including women, children and other vulnerable groups, to face extreme brutal torture and a severe humanitarian crisis.


Although countless human rights laws and international conventions have been discussed and adopted at UN conferences over the past few decades, the international community is still making progress in strengthening the protection of civilians, especially vulnerable groups, in armed conflict. Very little.


In 2022, build on the past. In the time of the tested epidemic, the new year has been placed with high hopes as a year of recovery. It is against this background that assistance and protection of civilians will be more challenging, and the cooperation and support of the international community is also particularly important.


“The real war will never get in the books.”

How can the words on the table be implemented into the decision-making, and how can the decision-making change the fate?

All decisions will be left to you.
