THEME LETTER FROM THE SECRETARY-GENERAL
Most Esteemed Participants of ITSMUN’17,
The Theme of this year’s ITSMUN has been selected as ‘’Prevention of Global Violence’’, which requires immediate action through effective solutions.
Globally, violence resulted in the deaths of an estimated 1.28 million people in 2013 up from 1.13 million in 1990. However, these numbers do not reflect the horror when all these people have lost their lives and it is not just horror when it comes to death. Think about it, 1.28 million people have been buried into the eternity of silence.1.28 million dreams, hopes, thoughts, laughs and cries. Screams and horror is not what the world needs, nor has it ever been. What the world needs is love, compassion and peace.That’s why it is the time for you to open your eyes and brace yourselves once again. The world needs your bravery, your ideas and your opinions. As Dr. Amit Ray says “Only the brave men and women can bring peace to the world, not by practicing war but by practicing nonviolence.”
At ITSMUN’17, it is expected from you to find applicable solutions to the sub-topics given by your committee. As I always remind you, you are the ones who hold the key to the future and it is up to you to change this world. Even if no one cares, even if no one sees the right way, it is your job to lead the way to a brighter future. I and the rest of the ITSMUN family could not be more proud to gather you to discuss this issue since we have faith in you to come up with the right solution.

WELCOME LETTER FROM THE CONFERENCE MANAGER
After our second session which was an unforgettable experience for all of us, it is a great honour to announce that we are finally back with the third session of Izmir TAKEV Schools Model United Nations.
During four days of fruitful debates, the participants of ITSMUN’17 will be given the chance to examine a significant global issue: ‘’Prevention of Global Violence’’
As the board of ITSMUN’17, we believe that the afflictive events we are facing today might cause even more distressing issues in the future so this theme was chosen to tackle a large amount of problems. In our 6 committees which are Disarmament Committee, Environment Committee, Political Committee, Human Rights Committee, Security Council and The Joint Crisis Committee we aim to give the participants a remarkable opportunity to broaden their thinking.
You can apply to our conference as a delegation, an individual delegate, a student officer, press member, or staff member. Our website provides you with all the necessary information and resources you may need, but for any further questions, don’t hesitate to contact us. On behalf of our executive team, I welcome you to ITSMUN 2017.
