Welcome to MUN BILBAO 2020!

Fellow delegates, honorable Chairs and advisors,

It is a pleasure to welcome you all once again to our annual conference, which will take place in our school, Colegio Ayalde, between 30th of January and 2nd of February 2020.

The Secretariat Team is looking forward to heading up a conference in which delegates will come up with fruitful solutions to the most alarming issues that our society faces nowadays. Delegates will have to try their best in order to make the world we live in a better place.

We are particularly please to be concentrating on the Sustainable Development Goal, as we are a MUN Impact Partner Club, and to also offer delegates the chance to sit on a Model Arctic Council, one of only three such secondary school simulations in the World.

Once more, we are delighted to be organizing MUN Bilbao and to help improve our World, because the Earth is a fine place and worth fighting for!

Gabriela Ybarra

Secretary General
Hello! I am Gabriela and I have participated in MUN Bilbao 2018 as a delegate and in 2019 as a Chair. This year I will be the Secretary General, and it is an honour to head such a big and international Conference! Along with these Conferences, I have attended 6 others, including the UN MUN Youth Summit in the UN Headquarters in New York, as me, along with another 4 girls, we formed the first MUN Impact Club in Spain. I have been doing MUN for three years, and since then I have realised how interested I am in solving current issues. Before this activity, I barely knew about the problems that bothered the UN. However, I am know eager to solve these issues and want to make the world a better place. I am sure this conference will at least minimise these big issues and all together we will take a step forward towards solving them. Let’s do this together! I hope you enjoy the MUN Bilbao 2020 Conference, I am really looking forward to it!
