AMMUN 2020 is a groundbreaking conference in which the essence, the very spirit of the simulation will be pushed to the extreme. It takes place in a futuristic dystopian world, three decades in the future. All the issues the newspapers, the political TV programs and interviews have been warning the world about for the last couple of years are now real. Africa’s overpopulation at the root of crucial ressources deficit. Water shortage causing rationing. Technological progress overtaking its own creator : us. Designer babies, now completely legal, stimulating brand-new ethics questions. Artificial Intelligence spirits, so close to human nature, generating countless interrogation around conscience. Escalating conflicts reaching their highest peak, with countless issues, including, but not limited to, high threats on democracy around the world, cyberattacks, communication cut off, nuclear attacks. A real and occurring Third World War. Delegates will have to truly step into the shoes of a United Nations delegate in order to face and solve the issues of tomorrow in a futuristic political world. By organizing such a different MUN conference, our primary goal was to put the delegates, as future young leaders with imaginative, creative and intellectual resources, in a situation they will have to face in the future without any doubt. By renewing the concept itself of a simulation, in which imagination, freedom and self-awareness are the key words, delegates are now becoming the actors of their own reality.
All these reasons convinced us to choose “The Dystopic Anticipation“ as the theme of the second international edition of the AMMUN.
