Meet the chairs:
I’m a senior at ASW and I have the privilege to be your chair for the upcoming ZYGMUN conference. I have been doing MUN for three years now and in the past, I have attended conferences such as THIMUN and ACMUN among others. In my free time, I like to play basketball, volleyball and participate in MUN. This will be my first year chairing at a conference and I’m looking forward to the discussions on two very important topics. The first topic on implementing boundaries on weaponization of artificial intelligence is highly relevant in today’s world as the technology is constantly progressing and is used in warfare, therefore preventing its development from harming civilians in war is vital. The second topic that the delegates will debate is about preventing the usage of biological and chemical weapons which, regardless of the years it has been attempted to resolve, is still an issue that needs to be tackled with utmost urgency. Both of these topics have an impact on many children who are currently forced to live in dangerous environments, striving for survival on daily basis. I am hoping that this conference will be full of fruitful debate, impactful conversations, and memorable experiences.
I’m looking forward to meeting you all,
Mara Bondare, Chair of the Disarmament and International Security Committee
It is my honor to serve as a Student Officer in this year’s ZYGMUN. Overall, I have attended 7 conferences, making this MUN my 8th, and from my experience MUN is not just a simulation, it is a whole society itself. It’s an opportunity for young people, like all of us, to make ourselves familiar with problems that our world is facing every day. The future of the international community will soon be in our hands, and we must be ready for that responsibility.
The topics we will be discussing in the DC, have huge significance in, and can affect, future international relations. The regulation of Artificial Intelligence in warfare and the banning of chemical weapons, are matters that the world must face. Hundreds of people are killed in cruel ways for the sake of the wealth and power of others, therefore the United Nations should cooperate, setting any national interest aside, in order to ensure global peace.
Through a fruitful and extensive debate, I hope we will settle on solutions that don’t harm any nations, and structure resolutions aimed at strengthening global peace and cooperation.
I am looking forward to meeting you all at the conference!
Evgenia G. Neftetzidou, Chair of the Disarmament and International Security Committee
