and Dear Guests,
As this year's Secretary General it is my immense honor and pleasure to welcome you all to 7th annual Banja Luka Model United Nations. During these seven years, BaLMUN grew and evolved in order to become a successful and international MUN conference that provides it's delegates with rich and engaging experience.
Every year we make sure to stay on top of the current issues the world is facing and choose those topics that would allow for our delegates to engage and high point the importance of these issues by discussing, debating and making resolutions. Some of the topics that shall be discussed on this year's convocation are about eliminating child and forced marriage, discussing the effects and impact of globalization, dealing with active trade wars and breakthroughs in medicine like legalization of the use of embryonic stem cells.
BaLMUN takes pride in its ability to motivate and encourage both novice and seasoned delegates to learn and participate in politics of today. We believe it has never been more important to have young people who are knowledgeable and capable than it is now. The more we grow as a society the more problems we face and we at BaLMUN believe that conferences like ours are invaluable to those who wish to make this world a better place. We also believe in courage, compassion and virtue, because without these ideals to follow as guidelines we would never be able to achieve the change we wish to see in the world and in ourselves.
With that said, BaLMUN is a perfect opportunity for any high school student to expand their experience and showcase their abilities and talents in public speaking, communication and debating along with meeting new people and making friendships. As your Secretary General I cannot wait to meet you all this April in Banja Luka and I wish you all the best of luck! May your minds be sharp and your debates fruitful.
Your Secretary General - Aleksandra Ljepojević
