———–SPECIAL EVENTS———————————————————————–

Guest Speakers

JUNSIMUN & Leadership Conference 2016 will attract notable and dynamic personalities relevant to government, international relations, and contemporary issues to the conference. In addition, we will introduce in-committee guest speaker programme to ensure that all delegates have the opportunity to hear from real experts on their committee topics.

Gala and Awards Night

The Gala/Awards Night is a very special black-tie event that brings the JUNSIMUN & Leadership Conference 2016 celebration to its climax, where we recognize outstanding students and schools, role models whose achievements are a source of pride and inspiration to young people. We also show our thanks to staff advisers and institutions for their continued support.

The event aims to provide delegates the opportunity to interact freely with very important personalities and diplomats in an atmosphere devoid of the usual protocol associated with the offices of these personalities.

World Cultural Night

The conference combines committee sessions with spectacular social events to bring an unforgettable experience that reaches beyond cultures and borders. We all know that our culture is the vehicle of our values, what we believe in, the language we speak, the clothing we wear, the food we eat and the rest of them. We must make a deliberate and conscious effort to keep celebrating it and bringing it to the fore. We must continually celebrate our cultural awareness and support a solid community.

Schools wishing to perform at the World Cultural Night should notify us on or before the deadline of registration to book for a slot. The duration for each presentation is between 5 to 7 minutes. The mode of dressing for this event is: Cultural or traditional dress of Nigeria or that of the delegate’s adopted country. Improper dressing by any delegate will not be tolerated.

World Food Arena

Food does more than keep us alive. It connects us to the land, to cultural heritage, and to each other. It is usually associated with feelings and identity, therefore celebrating the world food will always remain part of our human culture.

The JUNSIMUN & Leadership Conference World Food Arena offers the diplomatic missions in Nigeria, a unique opportunity to showcase their cultural identity through food. The students will have a handful of opportunities to taste the various food delicacies provided by the Embassies/High Commissions.
