Futuristic General Assembly: Development Goals (2029)
The UNGA is the democratic heart of the UN with 193 member states founded in 1945. The Futuristic General Assembly (FGA) assumes that we are in the future wherein certain developments and progress have been made in terms of technological advancements, economic and political sectors with respect to each member state’s state profile. Delegates should do thorough research and past events and propose solutions to imagine and think about what actions a state would take in the future.
Topic A: The Question of Automated Labor
Topic B: Determining the New UN Development Goals
Letter from the Chair
Dear Esteemed Delegates:
Welcome to JHUMUNC XXIII! My name is Lori Baxter and I will be serving as you chair for Futuristic General Assembly. I look forward to working with all of you to have fruitful discussion on pressing and imperative issues.
I am a junior at Johns Hopkins studying Applied Math and Statistics and International Studies, and I am originally from Chattanooga, Tennessee. Besides JHUMUNC, I am a Resident Advisor in a freshman dorm and am on the exec board for my university’s programming board, the HOP!
This is my third year at JHUMUNC, my second year as a JHUMUNC chair, and my 7th year doing Model UN. MUN has always been one of my favorite activities size my freshman year of high school, and has given me opportunities to travel all across the south and even a few times to the United Nations itself. Whether it’s your first or last MUN conference, I hope here at JHUMUNC you all have a fun and rewarding experience.
That being said, if you have any question, concerns, comments etc., please don’t hesitate to contact me. I hope each one of you will come to JHUMUNC well equipped to engage in meaningful debate with your peers and leave the conference having learned more about the United Nations, made new friends, and crafted legitimate solutions to these issues.
Chair, Futuristic General Assembly: Development Goals (2029)
