"Diplomacy as an art of telling"
For the past 19 years, GSMUN has brought together some of the most impressive young leaders to debate issues pertinent to past, present and future crises on a global scale. Each year they have demonstrated an unparalleled capacity to collaborate and negotiate with fellow delegates on some of the most divisive issues. The skills delegates will learn at GSMUN - effective negotiating, public speaking, critical thinking, and teamwork - are intended to form an understanding of diplomacy for the next generation of diplomats, politicians and leaders.
Here in GSMUN we carry a great tradition of diplomacy being one of the oldest model United Nations conferences in Turkey. That is why the conference theme of the 20th session of GSMUN focuses on the notion of diplomacy. This year’s theme is “Diplomacy as an Art of Telling”, inspired by the famous quote of Sir Winston Churchill. We’re looking forward to sharing this tradition of diplomacy with you during GSMUN’20.
