Dear Participants, It is my utmost pleasure to welcome you to the tenth annual session of Hüseyin Avni Sözen Model United Nations Conference.

Agenda Item 2: Agreeing for a stance against corporate greenwashing

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is a committee established to address global climate change. Its main objective is to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that will prevent dangerous human interference with the climate system. The UNFCCC does work to develop and implement policies and agreements to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change, even though it does not specifically address a global minimum carbon price or globally acknowledged principles on reporting and auditing of corporate emissions. This involves negotiating brand-new accords and guidelines, like the Paris Agreement, as well as collaborating with member nations to create and carry out national climate action plans.

FIFA (International Federation of Association Football)

Agenda Item : The Host Selection for 2030 World Cup

Football, the power that has been connecting numerous people all around the world for hundreds of years. The commercialization of football, however, has made this powerful sport more than what it meant yesterday. In such an atmosphere, international association football competition, officially FIFA World Cup also being the most comprehensive organization in the world, is held every four years, which each nation is aspiring to host. After the controversial host selections for successive World Cups 2018 and 2022 under the presidency of Sepp Blatter who is blamed for numerous claims of bribery, World Cup 2030 is now subject matter. From east to west, many states are struggling to host this most prestigious sport contest on earth. In the FIFA Committee, delegates will have the chance, first, to find out the inner dynamics of the international governing body of football, and then to have a say in the host selection of World Cup 2030. The fact that either proposing or supporting a bid is primarily combined with political grounds will stimulate delegates to think and shape their manners in the light of their countries' interests

The Manhattan Project

The Manhattan Project was started 2 years after the U.S. joined World War II, following the events of the Axis Powers’ occupation of France and the attack on Pearl Harbor. In the year of 1943, the United States’ President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and United Kingdom Prime Minister Winston Churchill agreed upon pooling their resources to develop nuclear weapons, which eventually became the Manhattan Project. The scientific breakthrough that has been made in the project was later transformed into destruction after the U.S. attack on Japan. This new weapon caused enormous damage and it affected the global aspect upon wars and governments, resulting in tens of treaties about the regulation and usage of atomic power. In the Manhattan Project committee, you will have the chance to experience and contribute to the scientific progress in the middle of World War II. You will have the opportunity to decide whether this newfound power that lies within the atom is used for good, or destruction.

JCC: 1937 Japanese Invasion China

In 1937, the Imperial Japanese Army invaded China as part of the Second Sino-Japanese War. The invasion followed years of escalating tensions between China and Japan, including the Japanese invasion of Manchuria in 1931 and the Marco Polo Bridge Incident in 1937. The Japanese invasion of China was marked by brutal tactics and widespread atrocities committed against Chinese civilians and prisoners of war. The most infamous incident was the Nanking Massacre, in which an estimated 300,000 Chinese civilians and soldiers were killed by Japanese troops in the city of Nanking. The invasion of China was a significant event in the lead-up to World War II, as it demonstrated Japan's military aggression and expansionist ambitions. The conflict continued until the end of World War II in 1945, with Japan's surrender to the Allied powers.

The North Atlantic Treaty is a military alliance established after the second World War. As of today , NATO has 30 members (28 European and 2 North American) , formed by twelve founding members. This alliance sets out the idea of collective defence, meaning that an attack against one Ally is considered as an attack against all Allies. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization – or NATO – ensures that the security of its European member countries is inseparably linked to that of its North American member countries. The Organization also provides a unique forum for dialogue and cooperation across the Atlantic. This year delegates will be focusing on the Global War on Terror , the American-led military campaign after the 9/11 2001 terrorist attacks. President George W. Bush announced a plan to seek at and stop terrorists allgabe the globe. On October 7 2001 the President announced that the USA had begun military operations against Al-Qaeda training camps and Taliban military installations. In addition, in 2002 and early 2003 the USA began exerting pressure on Iraq to break ties with terrorists and destroy weapons of mass destruction. On March 19 2003, operations began in order to remove Saddam Hussein from power.

EU (European Union)

Agenda Item: Brexit

The European Union (EU) is a political and economic union of 27 member states located primarily in Europe. It was established in the aftermath of World War II to promote peace, stability, and economic prosperity in the region. One of the most significant recent events in the history of the EU has been the decision by the United Kingdom (UK) to leave the union, commonly referred to as "Brexit." The negotiations that followed were marked by numerous disagreements on issues such as the status of the Irish border and the rights of EU citizens living in the UK. As of January 2021, the UK and the EU have entered into a new phase of their relationship, with new trade and cooperation agreements in place. However, the impact of Brexit on both the UK and the EU remains uncertain, with some experts predicting economic disruption and political instability in the years to come.
