It’s a wrap: The Tübingen NMUN-Delegation is heading into 2024

2023 is coming to an end, and so are our first few months together as the Tübingen 2024 NMUN-Delegation. Since our first weekly meeting-session in October, where we learned about all the details concerning the NMUN-project, lots has happened. Mid-November we held our first training simulation. This wasn’t only a possibility to learn more about the rules of procedure as well as debating at the United Nations in general. Even more so, it also meant a great opportunity for us all to get to know each other better over the cause of the weekend, be it over a shared pizza at lunch or our photo-shoot in front of the Neue Aula.

We also continuously came together in smaller working-groups for fundraising, Public Relations and preparation for TMUN, which will be our own one-day conference in Tübingen held in January. The PR-team for example regularly updated our Insta-page and Website while the fundraising team organized a bake sale in December and is currently planning the Clubhaus-Fest, taking place on the 11th of January 2024.

Apart from these important tasks, we continued to learn more about both the Republic of Benin and the different committees in which we are going to represent the country in New York City. By preparing and giving presentations about topics such as Benin’s history, culture or socio-economic situation, we were able to gather background-knowledge and interactively discuss Benin’s possible points of view on the different committee topics.

Currently, our focus lies on the preparation of individual position papers for the different committee topics. Furthermore, we will undergo a special speech-training after the Christmas break, so we’ll be able to shine not only with our knowledge but also rhetorically in New York. We feel happy and grateful for the great experiences and moments we were able to share together so far and are looking forward to the future work expecting us in 2024.

We will keep you updated on our progress and wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
