Welcome to VIBGYOR MUN 13.
It gives me immense pleasure to welcome you all to the VIBGYOR Model United Nations. This event has always been a platform for young and enthusiastic individuals to come together and contribute to building a better world.
Technology has revolutionized the world as we know it. From communication to healthcare, transportation to education, technology has transformed every aspect of our lives. However, this transformation has not come without a cost. It has also led to increased isolation, addiction, and loss of human touch. We need to strike a balance between technology and human behaviour.
At VIBGYOR, we believe that education is not just about imparting knowledge but also about shaping character. Our schools focus on building well-rounded individuals who are equipped to face the challenges of the world. We believe in instilling values such as empathy, collaboration, and critical thinking in our students.
To achieve this balance, it is imperative that we not only teach our children the necessary skills to navigate the digital world. But to use it responsibly, ethically, and in a way that benefits society as a whole. At VIBGYOR, we integrate technology into our curriculum to equip our students with the necessary digital skills.
The VIBGYOR Model United Nations is an excellent platform for young people to hone these skills. It provides an opportunity for them to learn about global issues and work together to find solutions. It helps them develop critical thinking, public speaking, and negotiation skills. It also teaches them about diplomacy, empathy, and teamwork.
I am confident that the delegates at this year’s VIBGYOR MUN will be able to bring their unique perspectives and ideas to the table. I urge you to approach the discussions with an open mind and a willingness to learn from each other. Let us work towards building a better world, one step at a time.
The VIBGYOR MUN is an excellent opportunity for young people to contribute positively to the world. I wish all the delegates the best of luck and hope that this event is a transformative experience for them.
Mr. Rustom Kerawalla
I am delighted to welcome you all to the VIBGYOR Model United Nations scheduled to take place in July 2023. As the Vice Chairperson of the VIBGYOR Group of schools, I am proud of our commitment to providing world-class education to our students. We are particularly invested in empowering our students with the skills and knowledge needed to become future leaders.
Leadership is not just about leading, but it is also about listening, learning, and serving. As delegates at the VIBGYOR MUN, you will have the opportunity to practice and develop your leadership skills. You will learn to articulate your ideas, persuade others, and negotiate effectively. You will also learn to listen to and respect differing opinions and build consensus.
The theme for this year’s conference is SDG number 16, which is about promoting peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, providing access to justice for all, and building effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions at all levels. Conflict resolution is an essential aspect of achieving these goals.
At VIBGYOR, we believe that conflict resolution is a skill that can be taught and learned. Through our comprehensive curriculum, we provide our students with the necessary skills to resolve conflicts peacefully. We teach them to communicate effectively, empathize with others, and negotiate for win-win solutions.
As delegates at the VIBGYOR MUN, you will have the opportunity to apply these conflict resolution skills. You will learn to approach complex issues with an open mind and a willingness to collaborate. You will learn to identify common ground and build bridges across divides.
In conclusion, I urge you to approach the VIBGYOR MUN with enthusiasm and a willingness to learn. You are the future leaders of our world, and it is up to you to build a better tomorrow. Use this opportunity to hone your leadership skills, practice conflict resolution, and contribute to achieving SDG 16. I wish you all the best of luck, and I look forward to seeing the solutions you will bring to the table.

We are thrilled to announce the 13th edition of the upcoming VIBGYOR MUN conference from 26 to 28 July, 2023 to be hosted in the vibrant city of Pune, India.
As we gather in Pune, the cultural capital of Maharashtra, India, we will be focusing on some of the most pressing global issues related to diplomacy, conflicts and wars, and the problems that emerge as a result of them. We strongly believe that resolving these issues is critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goal 16, which is dedicated to promoting peace, justice, and strong institutions.
The VIBGYOR MUN conference will provide a platform for young delegates from all around the world to engage in meaningful discussions and debates on crucial topics. Through a series of stimulating committee sessions, we aim to foster an environment of collaboration, critical thinking, and diplomacy, where delegates can hone their skills in research, public speaking, and negotiation.
We welcome delegates from schools across the country and abroad with varied levels of experience to join us in this exciting endeavour. Whether you are a seasoned MUN participant or a first-timer, we assure you that the VIBGYOR MUN conference will be a transformative experience that will leave a lasting impact on your personal and professional growth.

We are extremely proud that VIBGYOR GROUP OF SCHOOLS is once again ready with its much-awaited VIBGYORMUN for the year 2023. It is indeed a proud moment for the entire fraternity of VIBGYOR, as this year we will witness the 13th edition of this student led initiative unfold in Pune. Our team has been hard at work to ensure that our conference continues to enhance the high standard of the past 12 years. The participation has multiplied over the years and we continue to foster the qualities of integrity, trust, honesty, and promote the spirit of inquiry.
Through this annual event, it is our endeavour to celebrate and commemorate the true spirit and art of investigation and encourage learners to research various matters of local and global significance. We wish to draw the attention of our youth to urgent global issues and at the same time help them assimilate the much needed skills of critical thinking, productive dialogue and discussion, conflict resolution, writing and team work. The conference will not only sensitise our youth to global problems but also encourage and motivate them to find solutions through fruitful discussions.
Our diverse set of committees will cover some of the most pressing issues of today like Countering cyberattacks and establishing cyber security through international and cohesive efforts amidst use of artificial intelligence in modern warfare, plan of action to address the situation of women in Africa and other such important issues. Each one of these committees will take the learners a step forward in their journey to become progressive thinkers and sharpen their skills that will prepare them for the challenges of a dynamically changing world. I must add here that this is totally synchronous with the MISSION STATEMENT OF OUR INSTITUTION!
We look forward to the Secretariat, the Executive Board and our Delegates to function in Harmony and make this edition of VIBGYORMUN A GREAT SUCCESS!
GOOD LUCK ALL DELEGATES!
