Genetic Engineering: An Insight on our Future
Esteemed Advisors, Distinguished guests, and prospective participants,
I am more than privileged and proud to welcome you all to the seventh annual session of Kabataş model UN Conference, which will take place between 26 and 29th of April 2019. We as the Secretariat and the Executive board work with relish in order to make this conference immensely remarkable for each person who will have the opportunity to take part in. I foresee that up until reading this letter, we will have acquired your interest towards KMUN 2019.
As a consequence of seven-years-long journey and our experiences, the major intention of our community is to instigate our participants to think, elaborate and produce beneficial resolutions concerning the issues that might trouble the intercontinental agenda in the immediate future. In the seventh edition of KMUN, this year; We, as the Secretariat, have decided that one of the possible scenarios that we might face with, was exclusively the most necessary to be thought upon: The role of the Genetic Engineering in our lives. Since the 2000’s, our world is being shaken by the lack of physical needs such as bionic hands, legs, livers etc. Even if we are able to illustrate some kind of superpowers such as the United States, Japan, and South Korea, which have dominated the production market of genetic and biomechanical goods, it is a proven fact that ninety-eight percent of the world population is not able to reach and be informed about the innovation regarding the genetic inventions. Specifically, The countries located in the South American region suffer from the inchoate technology related to the genetic mutilations and physical necessities. That is why we have an expectation and urge our delegates to evaluate the possible risks and benefits that humanity may have either utility or detriment.
Moreover, our prior aim of starting up an MUN career was to be the ones who will be saving the future of our planet: Earth. Well, this subject gives an absolutely simplistic answer to that question. In the 21st century, technology constantly develops in the unthinkable rapidity; so our aim, as the ones who are going to be responsible for sustaining a peaceful and developed future for the new generations, must be chasing the continuously developing technology. Obviously, in 2030’s we will be dealing with the biomechanical humans, hologram visions etc. Given all these facts, I as the President of the General Assembly, with the confirmation of my fellow members of the Secretariat set the theme of KMUN 2019 as Genetic Engineering: An Insight on our Future.
Another aspect that must be discussed upon is lack of the revenues that might be used for the development of genetic technology. As I have previously mentioned the market has been dominated by several states, other countries are not capable of reaching the data regarding the genetic studies. Thus, all of the states must work under a formation specified to the genetic engineering, contributing to the innovation by sharing.
All in all, it is my very sincere hope and belief that you dedicate yourself for the sake of the sustainable development of the humankind along with bearing in mind and contributing to the role of genetic technology.
I am also looking forward to meeting you all in person and spend our time effectively in between 26 and 29th of April 2019.
President of the General Assembly
