SOFIMUN successfully over!

The SOFIMUN Foundation is proud to announce that the SOFIMUN 2009 edition is successfully over. Stay tuned for our aftermath section in the beginning of September 2009.

Unprecedented logistical crisis scenario taken off the agenda

The SOFIMUN Foundation worked for the last couple of weeks on the idea to simulate a real crisis scenario from a logistical point of view. Delegates of a simulated organ would be rushed from the hotel where they are staying, in the middle of the night (01:00 - 03:00) to the plenary sessions venue and start working on a just-emerged crisis. The SOFIMUN Foundation teams - ORG-com and EX-com had everything prepared for this experiment.



SOFIMUN receives support from Mr. Maher Nasser - Director of United Nations Information Service in Vienna

The SOFIMUN Foundation received a special message of support from the director of UNIS office in Vienna Mr. Maher Nasser. The message is due to the fact that Mr. Nasser will not be able to attend this year's SOFIMUN. The message will be fully read during the opening ceremony of the SOFIMUN 2009 on the July 18, until then we publish just a part of it:


"As you address vital global issues at the Sofia International Model United Nations Conference over the coming days, you will represent diplomacy as it should be – countries and individuals coming together to find solutions through constructive debate. You will examine all different positions – including views you may oppose. After the end of the Conference, your skills, your ideas and your initiative can contribute to providing those global solutions that we need to achieve a safer, healthier, more prosperous world."
