Between meeting Pope Francis, hearing a speech by their own Matteo Renzi, and parading through the historical streets of Rome - the be.boosted delegation, with their Canadian stickers and their Justin Trudeau quotes at the ready, shone every step of the way representing Canada at the Harvard World Model United Nations 2016. We debated passionately, negotiated skillfully, spent hours into the nights talking strategies, and made sure our motivation reflected in our committee rooms.

When over 50 young and talented leaders gather in Berlin to inspire and be inspired, it’s macroMUN time. MUN stands for Model United Nations - and macro? We named our conference macroMUN because it is meant to exceed the classic MUN conference and inspire delegates on a broader level. macroMUN expands the classic concept of MUN by delegates representing not only countries, but companies as well as scientific organizations. To unlock the full potential of such a conference on a content based and individual level, we enriched debates with an expert panel, with skill training workshops and one-on-one coaching sessions. Now, that you have a brief overview of what macroMUN is about, let us jump right back to Friday night, let us go on a journey through the macroMUN 2015 weekend.

Sometimes, you don’t even realize how grandiose an idea is until you’re in the middle of it. For instance, do you think it sounds like a great idea to assemble 30 Ukrainian, Russian and German youth to discuss ways to resolve the Ukraine crisis? Come on, seriously, how does it matter what these young people do during this meeting? Will Merkel, Putin and Poroshenko listen? Probably not. But!

April 28th marked an important day in a be.boosted alumni’s life: our first alumni online meeting!
While up until this date, there have not been many occasions for all former be.boosted delegations to meet, the be.boosted alumni network has now taken the next step by implementing monthly online meetings. Therefore, on April 28th, participants from Team Brussels, Team London and Team Seoul came together.
1 city, 5 days, 21 committees, 115 countries, 2400 participants – Diverse Views, A United Vision. Shining from large banners on doors and ceilings, these words accompanied our first steps through the enormously large conference centre KINTEX at the city limit of Seoul, which shouldn’t become our second but rather our first home over the next five days. The united vision of this year’s fifteen eMUN-fellows, representing the Kingdom of Morocco, and their two faculty advisors and be.boosted coaches Rima and Tobi was clear: remember you’re awesome, trust your leadership and negotiation skills developed, exercised and fine-tuned over the last five months, and go and MoROCKo it! With this in mind, we immersed ourselves in the vividly chatting crowds of young aspiring diplomats, and five minutes and thirty new business cards later, the united vision among all delegates of (strategic) networking, intercultural exchange and WorldMUN spirit was more than apparent. Accompanied by more or less traditional Korean dances, preliminary committee block formations and last minute strategy sessions, the 24th Harvard WorldMUN was officially declared open and the Olympics of Model United Nations began.
