ITU & UNESCO
The ITU-UNESCO is a collaboration between the International Telecommunication Union and the United Nations Education, Scientific, and Cultural Organization that promotes the development of communities through education and technology. Specifically, the ITU, created in 1865, is responsible for safe international connection and communication through telecommunication networks. UNESCO, a branch of the UN, works towards protecting the world’s resources through education about climate change, encourages cultural awareness through education about heritage sites, and often teams up with NGOs to implement peaceful and sustainable solutions.
Topic A: The Reconstruction of Mosul
Topic B: The Use of Informational Telecommunications Systems after Natural Disasters
Letter from the Chair
Dear Esteemed Delegates:
Welcome to JHUMUNC XIII! My name is Manasi Nawathe, and I have the pleasure of serving as your chair for this session of the ITU-UNESCO committee. Over the course of the committee, I am excited to see the bright solutions you all will develop to protect the historical treasures of our world and how you will tackle impending technological challenges.
This year, I am a sophomore in the Whiting School of Engineering, studying Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. Besides participating in JHUMUNC, I serve as the assistant captain of JHU JOSH, our university’s only all-female Bollywood dance team.
This will be my second year at JHUMUNC, but I have been a delegate in several conferences throughout high school. In JHUMUNC XII, I was a dias member for DISEC, and in my senior year of high school, I chaired an intramural conference. Having been on both sides of the dias, I have to say that there is not one side I prefer over the other. While moderating the committee has its share of valuable experiences, getting your bloc’s resolution passed or making a passionate speech as a delegate also has its rewards.
As we approach JHUMUNC 2020, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns about the topics or conference. My fellow dias members and I are looking forward to meeting you all and fostering some interesting discussions during JHUMUNC XIII!
Chair, ITU & UNESCO
