The Munual: The Manual for MUNers

我們是誰?

我們是一群熱衷於模擬聯合國的學生。我們在乎這個社會,並希望可以透過與大家分享我們在模聯所學到的知識貢獻在台灣模聯圈子上。

Who are we?

We are a group of students composed of MUN enthusiasts who care about our society and wish to contribute to the MUN community in Taiwan by sharing the knowledge we have attained through our diverse MUN experiences. 

我們為什麼要建立這個網頁?

模擬聯合國(簡稱為模聯)創立的起因是基於下一代學生有能力可以透過模聯來改變這個世界。我們了解這一點,因此除了強調模聯不只是一個比賽或交友的會議,也是個能夠讓學生瞭解他們在這個地球村擁有對社會責任的重要性。當我們在會議裡享受,我們希望能夠同時從中學習,並加以運用你們所學到的在自己的生活裡。The Munual就是為此而創立的。

當參與模聯會議的同時,我們有機會認識許多很有能力的代表,所以身為瘋模聯的學生,我們希望可以透過創立這個網站來啟發各地的學生。不論學校大小、不論公私立、不論性別、不論年齡,只要你喜歡模聯、對模聯有興趣,都歡迎你來到我們的網站;希望我們能在你的模聯生涯中助你一臂之力。

我們非常熱愛模聯,而當參與不同會議時,我們發現許多已經近乎完美的會議缺少一些能夠將此變得更美好的方面。所以,在完成設立網站後,我們開始設計可持續發展的訓練課程,目的是為了協助任何學校的模聯社發展- 無論資源分布或經驗。我們這樣做就是為了塑造出一個完美的模聯環境,讓大家能夠玩的開心以及從此學習。

我們也希望可以分享從模聯獲取的經驗和知識,尤其是國際觀,給所有獲得極少到沒有機會獲取的人,讓他們能夠在未來為這個社會有所貢獻。我們的經驗分享會位於本網站的部落格區。

Our Mission & Goal: Why did we create The Munual?

Model United Nations (MUN) was created based on the idea that students of the next generation, through MUN, have the ability to change this world. Recognising this, we wanted to promote MUN as something far more than a mere competition or social event; rather, as a place where students recognises the importance of themselves in this interconnected global community and their responsibilities they have in the society. While having fun, we wanted you to learn from the conference, and further implement those lessons in your everyday lives. For that, the Munual was created.

While attending MUN conferences, we have seen many great delegates, so we, MUN fanatics, have decided to create a website in order to assist you–regardless of gender, age, or school– in your journey towards become the best.

We love MUN very much, and while attending different conferences around Taiwan, we notice that in all of the awesome conferences we had been to, there is still something missing here and there that could make the already-great conference better. So, in addition to the website, we are moving on to designing sustainable training programs that can assist any school in their development of MUN. It would be applicable to any and all schools, regardless of resources or experience. Our goal for this is to assist schools in creating the perfect environment for all MUNers to enjoy, learn, and have fun in.

We also wanted to share the experiences and knowledge obtained from participating in MUN, particularly international mindedness, with everyone else who had little to no access to these insights, so they can further contribute to the global community in the future. We share these experiences mainly in the blog section.

最後 …

模聯是我們的熱衷,相信也是你們的。因為如此,我們大家也能夠為台灣模聯社群做進一步的貢獻,支持我們的理想。你們只要幫助我們宣傳(對,就是臉書!)或者是透過郵件信箱告訴我們網站需要修改的地方。甚至你想要我們上傳你所寫的文章也可以,只要利用電子信箱寄給我們就可以了!讓我們一起攜手完成這個理想吧。

Last Words …

MUN is our passion, and we believe it is yours too. That is why you can also contribute to our cause and the Taiwan MUN community by helping us promote and update this website with more precise information. If you have some experiences you wanted to share, you can do so via the blog section; just sent us your articles and it can be published. Let us work together for this cause.

“ 參與模聯,我們探索、我們協商、我們感動、我們成長。”

“In MUN, we explore, we confer, we inspire, and we mature.”

He thinks MUN is a great way to enhance a student’s public speaking and oratory skills, take a role in solving critical global problems, work diplomatically with others, and of course, meet numerous awesome friends (as Steven has done). Outside of MUN, he previously captained his school’s junior badminton team, has been an active member of student council in both his previous high school and Kang Chiao, and occasionally writes articles for the school newspaper.

TIMMY CHANG  張樂凡timmy

 

Timmy is a junior at Dominican International School. As a vivid MUNer who loves international affairs, he has participated in numerous conferences since his freshman year and is currently the executive of his school’s Model UN club. He believes that through Model UN, he not only could improve his debating skills but extend his social circle to infinity! Besides debating on hot global issues, he enjoys eating Haagen Dazs no matter whether he’s studying or watching BBC dramas. Anyhow, he hopes to contribute much through The Munual in order to spread MUN’s joy to more people around the country!

張樂凡目前於私立道明外僑學校就讀高中二年級。生為一個熱愛國際事務的模聯人,他從九年級便開始參與模擬聯合國會議,現在也在道明擔任模聯社的社長。他相信自己透過參與模聯不但能夠增進自己的思辨能力,更是能夠無限拓展自己的交友圈!他除了喜歡和他人辯論國際事務,平常他也非常喜愛邊看書或者看影集的時候邊吃哈根達斯的冰淇淋。他很期待透過 The Munual 將他在模聯所得到的喜悅和更多人分享!

Audrey is currently a junior at International Bilingual School at Tainan Science Park. She has been participating in Model UN conferences for the past three and a half years and is also the current club president of her school’s MUN club. Besides from Model UN, she also does debate, World Scholar’s Cup, and forensic tournaments. If it is not for school and extracurricular activities, she would like to sleep and eat all day. You can definitely find her either curled up in her bed or chucking down food at a café during her free time.

許廷瑀於國立南科國際實驗高級中學就讀高中二年級。今年已是他玩模聯的第四年,而他目前擔任南科實中模聯社的社長。除了模擬聯合國以外,他也很投入辯論、世界學者杯、和法庭競技賽等其他活動。若不是為了學校和他對於這些活動的喜愛,他其實最想做的事是成天在家吃跟睡覺哈哈哈。在他閒暇的空餘,你絕對可以看到他蜷著身體在床上睡覺或者在咖啡廳吃美食的樣子。

 

 

 

 

SIDNEY TSAI  蔡心榆sidney

 

Sidney Tsai is a 9th grader at New Taipei City’s Ginling Girls’ High School. She is currently the Officer of Public Affairs and Activities at her school’s Model UN club, and has been attending conferences since she was in the 7th grade. She was born in the USA (GEORGIA STATE REPRESENT!), but moved to Indonesia 5 years ago for 4 months, and to Taiwan after that. She can be considered a pretty open-minded and liberal person – you could tell her that you believe in unicorns that fart rainbows and prance on piles of gold, but she’d still be willing to listen to your theory (actually, it’s because she’s a weirdo herself).  She’s determined to work her hardest to provide the best content for all The Munual followers, and looks forward to the upcoming projects!

蔡心榆是目前就讀新北市立金陵女子高級中學的九年級生,也是從國一就開始參加模擬聯合國的模聯人,而目前在金陵模聯社的職位是公關兼活動部長。他是在美國喬治亞洲出生長大的,但五年前搬到印尼住四個月,之後再來到台灣。他的應該能算是個“思想開放”的人。就算你跟他說你覺得世界上有獨角獸這個東西,而且它們放的屁是彩虹,也會在一堆黃金上奔跑 – 他一定會很認真的聽你講完你的論點(其實只是因為他本身也是個怪人)。他下決心全心全意地為Munual所有的粉絲們準備最好的!
