Salient - Youth Conference

Interdisciplinary youth conference. Enabling critical dialogue among young professionals. Fostering practical skills for addressing 21st century challenges.

MUN / EDU MUNSC Salient is a youth conference that supplements the traditional Model United Nations (MUN) experience with educational content in the form of interactive lectures, roundtables, workshops and group exercises. ONE THEME / MULTIPLE PERSPECTIVES Each year we choose one overarching theme that is then used to simulate various international bodies and organise high-quality educational activities featuring experts from diverse issue-related fields. STEP BACK / DIVE DEEPER This way we want to take a step back from the power-driven interplay defining most classic MUN simulations, instead offering our participants an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of issues and challenges making up the overarching theme.

MEET THE UN SC PRESIDING OFFICERS ✨

✨ About Julian Schneider:
Julian is 21 years old. He is from Germany, more specifically from the countryside north of Frankfurt. He is currently in his third year of studying Biology/Environmental Science in Maastricht, The Netherlands, but is interested in pursuing environmental policy and international relations further in the future. He is part of UNSA Maastricht and the secretariat of EuroMUN 2020. For the last academic year, he was part of the UNSA Permanent Delegation. He has been delegate at eight conferences and a chair/crisis staff at three conferences across five different countries. His interests include of course science and politics, but another passion is memes, which he hopes to see plenty of in committee.

✨ About Stijn Servaes:
Stijn Servaes is currently studying for a degree in Applied Economic Sciences: Business Engineering at the KULeuven. Being very interested in International Affairs and Business/Economics in high school, Stijn decided to apply for a MUN conference in his first year at his university. A decision he has never regretted since. The conference made such an impact on him that it became one of his main hobbies for the past 4 years, having been a delegate and chair at several conferences around Europe. Besides that, Stijn has a large interest in (military) history of the past 4 centuries, and enjoys spending his free time watching documentaries and reading about historical events. "I became aware of Salient through my MUN association a couple of years ago. Ever since then, I've wanted to participate, and I'm honoured to have been given the opportunity to chair the United Nations Security Council at Salient 2020."

SALIENT 2020 SECRETARY GENERAL! ✨

Dear Future Participants of Salient 2020

Let me introduce myself, my name is Benjamin Baksa, and I have the honour and privilege of serving as your Secretary-General during this year’s conference in the lovely city of Ljubljana. As a veteran MUNer and organizer of Munapest conferences in Hungary, I have had a long and active MUN participation since high school. I am currently in my master studies at the Corvinus University of Budapest studying International Relations focusing on US and Eastern European Relations on which I wrote a few publications already. At the same time, I work as a part-time employee for the city diplomacy unit of the Municipality of Budapest. My hobbies quite obviously include MUN, like the one organised by Salient, which provides the opportunity for all participants to make everlasting friendships and gain valuable experience. Besides that, I like sports, strictly playing or teaching not watching. I also, like most people, enjoy binge-watching a shameless amount tv-series and reading exciting historical novels. I am very excited and eager to meet every one of our participants and provide you with an unforgettable conference.

✨ EU-CHINA: STRATEGIC OUTLOOK - INVESTMENTS AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Because of American protectionism and turning away from international trade flows, the European Union decided that is important, that they find new international trade partners so the dependency on the American market is less prominent. But, how do you trade with the state that is repressive, but at the same time an economic superpower? How do you overcome breaches of the international norms about investments and theft of intellectual property? Join us at Salient to find a way to deal with the EU-China relations. 🔝🗺️💸📈

How to tackle and keep the balance and find solutions to both problems – need for more energy and how safe is nuclear energy is the question on which our delegates will be looking for an answer. 🔝🧐

Corentin's full testimony:

"Chairing at KULMUN19 was an amazing experience I would recommend to everyone. Besides the city and the organisation of the conference, being part of this Secretariat is very special because it mixes up a lot of different committees and thus different personalities as chairs. The mood in the Secretariat was always so joyful, full of energy and with a wonderful spirit during the whole week. Day and night you can count on the Secretariat of KULMUN to be at the top of their games"

Now that Salient 2019: The Transatlantic divide has come to an end and the impressions have settled, the Organising team would like to thank all the participants for joining us in Ljubljana this year ☺️ Moving in the new 1 + 4 format with one full day dedicated to panels, gave the participants the foundation for an informed discussion in their committees in the following days and opportunity to listen to the experts on the topics👂 Although the Conference was attended by fewer people than in the previous years we are happy to say that that contributed to the intensified and outstanding debates 🗣 as well as closer connection among participants 🥰 which fulfilled our main aspiration 🙌

➡️Plans for the next edition are already in the making and till then, next time again in July, we bid you adieu 👋

Salient 2019: Day 4

The fourth day of Salient as the sessions entered their final stages!

But was there enough space for compromise or were the delegates disunited in their pursuit for conclusive answers to bridge the transatlantic divide? 🤔

Salient 2019: Day 3

Delegates have a specific set of points and motions they favour above the rest. Motion for an unmoderated caucus. Point of personal privilege. Right of reply. And the evergreen Motion to suspend the meeting for the coffee break. While some attempts are more successful and others less, everyone has been very successful at discussing this year's most salient topics - The Masters of Transatlantic Relations 👑
