Welcome Address

Dear Prospective Delegates, Teachers, and Parents

WPGA has the distinct honour of inviting you to our 12th annual Vancouver Youth Model United Nations conference. This year, we are excited to be hosting VYMUN from October 27-29, 2017 at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler, one of the world’s most spectacular venues. Last year’s VYMUN, our largest yet, welcomed over 400 students in grades 7 through 11 from British Columbia and beyond.

Our dedicated VYMUN secretariat and staff are passionate about providing delegates with a deeper understanding of the global issues we face today in a realistic United Nations simulation environment. We are committed to giving youth delegates (ages 12 through 16) the opportunity to explore international relations, learn the art of diplomacy, and develop public-speaking, negotiation, and critical thinking skills. Beyond this, we strive to support new and experienced delegates alike in an open and enriching environment where they feel comfortable to enhance their abilities.

We sincerely hope that you as teachers and parents will encourage your students or children to join us at VYMUN 2017. For more information regarding registration, please visit our registration page, and for venue information, please click here.

On behalf of the VYMUN team, we hope to see you in Whistler in October. Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions.

Most Sincerely,

Emma Blake

Secretary-General of VYMUN 2017
