Humanity is constantly overwhelmed by new challenges brought upon by divide, disagreement, and polarization within the world. The time for us to adapt and acclimate to the rising threats of urgent global problems has long passed, and we as humanity cannot act effectively as long as we are unable to reach a common solution. The best way to start positive change is to resolve the negative actions of the past. The theme of Hisar JMUN 2023 is “A World in Harmony: Creating a future of mitigated polarization by addressing ongoing crises”, focusing on resolving urgent issues that humanity has become accustomed to disregarding, and cannot afford to put on hold anymore.
If not acknowledged, many world issues ranging from climate change to territorial disputes to a lack of accessible healthcare will continue to be overlooked resulting in a world of polarization. As major companies and political leaders continue to neglect urgencies like climate change, a world of balance and equal opportunity diminishes. Even though issues such as climate change are well-known topics that are advocated for, major companies and parties involved fail to recognize the true threat they inflict on the world.
Through its 17 Sustainable Development Goals, The United Nations has been addressing issues of sustainability and development for decades. These goals aim to address global challenges such as poverty, inequality, and the climate crisis, in order to create a more sustainable and equitable future for all. However, without prioritizing compromise over division and reducing the lack of cooperation among nations, the possibility of effectively implementing these goals and creating real, lasting change plummets. While competition may seem highly profitable, in the long term, states and other major actors need to recognize how cooperation will allow our world to thrive.
Climate change is one of the most pressing issues facing humanity today. Needless to say, it is a global crisis that requires urgent action from all levels of society to address this critical issue effectively. As different parties and individuals-in-power continue to hold opposing views on the issue, it becomes increasingly difficult to reach a consensus and take effective action. This not only hinders our ability to address global warming and the global climate crisis but also exacerbates the negative effects of the crisis itself.
It is important for individuals and communities to work together to bridge divides and find common ground in order to create a more harmonious and sustainable future. The theme of "A World in Harmony" is particularly relevant for today's world, as we continue to face a multitude of crises and challenges that require urgent attention. Over the past year, we have seen a number of major issues come to the forefront of global consciousness. From the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic to the rise of far-right and left extremism, it is clear that we are living in a time of great uncertainty and change. These issues are the very barriers that prevent global matters from being tackled. In order to effectively address these points and create a better future for all, we must work together and overcome the polarization that has divided us.
At Hisar JMUN 2023, we will bring together young leaders from around the world to address these urgent global issues and work towards creating a future of mitigated polarization. Through discussions, debates, and simulations, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about different perspectives and work towards finding common solutions.
We believe that by empowering the next generation of leaders to understand and address these complex challenges, we can create a more harmonious and inclusive world. Hisar JMUN 2023 will feature keynote speakers, workshops, and networking events to further engage and inspire attendees. Our aim is to provide a platform for young leaders to share their ideas, learn from each other, and take action to create positive change in the world.
