This exuberant and enterprising event was held on 5th and 6th October 2018 with strong participation of more than 250 delegates.
Starting the event on a propitious note, the ceremonial lamp was lit and it was followed by the opening ceremony. The dignitaries for the day, Mr Anil Trigunayat and Mr Baljit Alhuwalia graced the occasion and enlightened the audience with their thoughtful address. The conference was declared open by Secretary-General SYMUNC 2018, Ms Anubhuti Dhingra and hence, moved into its first debate session.
SYMUNC over the years has served to be an encouraging platform for many young leaders to actively deliberate on issues of significance and put forth their opinions, and this year too it gave impetus to that avid spirit by hosting a set of conventional committees (United Nations Human Rights Council, United Nations General Assembly-Disarmament and Internal Security Committee, United Nations Security Council and United Nations Environment Programme) and unconventional committees (All India Political Parties Meet and FIFA). Cybercrime and cyber welfare, the situation in Myanmar and even the possible expansion and scheduling of the football club seasons were some of the thought-provoking agendas that were discussed, leading to a 2-day-long session of fruitful debate.
The proceedings of the committee facilitated and the sessions presided by an experienced and erudite Executive Board, ensured that each participant had something to take back in return from being a part of the event. The event concluded on a solemn note with a closing ceremony after the deliberation session on day 2 which incorporated the award distribution ceremony as well.
The core Organising Committee of SYMUNC 2018 comprising of Secretary-General Ms Anubhuti Dhingra, Director-General Mr Priyam Arora and Deputy Secretary Generals, Mr Akshit Seth and Ms Surbhi Purwar under the guidance of faculty in charge Mr.Abhinav Pal made sure that the event was a success and worked tirelessly to ensure that it turned out to be an experience unparalleled for one and all!
