TechMUN 2021: April 2nd and 3rd in Atlanta, GA
Dear Delegates, Faculty Advisors, and MUN enthusiasts,
On behalf of the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs and the Georgia Tech Model United Nations Program, it is my sincere pleasure to welcome you to TechMUN 2021, Georgia Tech’s official collegiate conference scheduled for mid-March; with an exact time-table soon to be released.
Entering our fourth year, TechMUN provides a welcoming conference for all attending colleges and universities by offering both General Assembly and Crisis Committees geared towards all levels of collegiate Model United Nations experience. With the current Covid-19 pandemic presenting unprecedented challenges for both students and faculty, TechMUN aims to provide an exceptional virtual conference schedule built upon our theme of weaving technology with international affairs. This year, we will be utilizing the voice-chat platform Discord to simulate an in-person experience, complete with separate committee rooms and virtual caucusing tables. It is our aim to provide a competitive competition while simultaneously maintaining an accessible floor for all delegates, no matter experience level, and Discord has proven an effective method for engaging delegate interaction while maintaining social distancing protocol. Located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, while attendees may be unable to visit in-person, we hope to bring Atlanta to you.
We encourage all programs and teams to mark TechMUN on their Spring schedules to provide an in-person experience while maintaining social distancing. Detailed information about committee topics, use of technology, and more will soon be available on this website. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
