Delegates of the Environment Commission,
Welcome to the 19th annual AMMUN Conference. My name is Ghena Dabbas, and this year, it is my greatest honor to be presiding over the Environment Commission. In a rapidly developing and unpredictable world, many issues and challenges have, and still are being created which jeopardize our environment. If you take a look around, you would see that the beauties of nature are being lost one after another at an unprecedented rate, which as a result, threatens the survival of millions of species, including us humans as well. For decades now, humans have been blindly doing everything possible in order to fulfill the vision of a perfect world. Striving for development, humans have been greatly impacting the environment, straying us further away from global sustainability. The challenge before us is to think of, and act on development through the lens of environmental health. One of the most effective ways of doing so would be through MUN. In the Environment Commission this year, we will be debating the topics that are the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest, the life-threatening smog in India, and water scarcity in Jordan. These are some of the most pressing issues of our time, that are now in the hands of our generation. Throughout this conference, I hope that we as a committee, will be able to come up with multiple, feasible solutions, while contributing to this year’s theme, that is ‘Bridging the Divide.’ It is important that in order to reach these solutions, we all must come together and overcome our differences, focusing on our shared goal; saving the environment. Delegates, I expect you all to come to the conference with a strong mindset, and the will to make environmental change once and for all. The earth is our home, and it is up to us to protect it. I look forward to meeting with, and working alongside you all.
President of the Environment Commission.
