scio me nescire
Message from Secretary General
"Scio me nescire: The only thing I know is that I know nothing" -Plato's Socrates
In this day and age, information comes to us at beyond lightning speeds, in such dense yet stupendous packages. We watched, with the Parisians, as the spire of the Notre Dame fell, we were enraptured by the first-ever picture of a black hole some 58 million light years away, we stood together with the people of New Zealand during the horrific Christchurch mosque shootings and we were baffled yet again as the EU & the UK agreed to delay Brexit to a later date. It's hard to believe that all of this had happened in the short span of however long 2019 has been.
Yet, it has. It seems that everyday, we are bombarded and strafed with news and reports about the world around us. Scio me ncescire. With so much thrown at us, perhaps the only thing we can claim to know is we know nothing. In this day and age, perhaps humility and modesty must be the first steps we take in order ot take ourselves far enough.
SUNMUN 2019 aims to provide all participants, no matter delegate or student officer, a platform rouse with enthusiasm for stimulating debates on current issues. As we have in the past, we plan to spearhead the re-emerging Malaysian MUN scene, contribute to the development of this ever so stupefying extra-curricular activity and the growth of the individuals within.
