From the Desk of Director
Dear Delegates & faculty members,
You know the saying, “Nothing changes if, nothing changes.” Well if nothing changes, we stay the same. We don’t grow. We don’t evolve. We don’t get better. And that’s not going to work—not for you, and not for the world. We need a positive change. We need new ideas. We need progress. I feel you never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, you need to build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete. The entire thought process of strategizing the formation of a new model that talks about growth and sustainability is what we need to deliberate upon This is where as a social system we need to come together and fix what needs immediate attention. The real work of social innovation is to fix our broken human systems. These can be done only through collaboration,as social innovation thrives on collaboration; on doing things with others. Like minded individuals with similar interests and being global ambassadors for change have the transformational power and drive to bring the plans from paper or board rooms to reality . Innovation is the unrelenting drive to break the status quo and develop anew where few have dared to go.
It requires courage and a focussed vision to continue , grit to stay on when things don’t look favourable and the tenacity to not deter till targets are achieved.
As ambassadors of change I am sure you all will bring about a distinct culture of collaboration and teamwork for social innovation and transformation in varied fields.
May you establish benchmarks of leadership and teamwork. Always remember “A leader is best when people barely know he exists… when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will all say: We did it ourselves.” “Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence.” BBMUN is one such platform of curating leaders and chiselling their sharp minds thereby transforming them into ‘tools of change’.
We, at Blue Bells Model School, believe in providing such platforms to our ignited youth where they can see opportunities even in a pandemic and turn them into solutions for global benefit.
Through BBMUN we hope to provide a unique opportunity to the students to engage in productive dialogues and also develop strong bonds of friendship. The conference will draw attention not only to sensitive issues of social cohesion but also issues of global significance through different committees. Our sincerest endeavour will be to focus on concrete solutions and devise strategies for social innovation and transformation of various portals of the global society.
I am sure this conference will be an enriching experience for all the delegates as they exchange innovative ideas and respond positively to their heart’s calling there by ushering in a ‘golden age’ full of hope and optimism. I also extend my best wishes and greetings to all the delegates.
May this journey be an opportunity to address the issues that till now were not noticed but were pertinent for global well-being. My wishes and blessings for one and all.

At Blue Bells, we endeavor to form initiatives that promote the unfolding potential of the youth, through a process of constant self-exploration and self-evaluation, with a vision to realize. It is aided by inculcating a sense of community service, strong social values and high levels of participation in governance.
It gives us immense pleasure to invite you to be an integral part of an inspiring and thought-provoking conference, BBMUN 2020, with the theme of “Blue Bells for Social Justice and Harmony.”
Mahatma Gandhi said, "Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well. There is nothing more potent than thought. Deed follows word and word follows thought." At Blue Bells, we stand for enabling the voice of students towards harmony and social justice with a firm belief that even a small group of thoughtful, committed individuals can bring about lasting and effective social changes.
We firmly believe that 2 days of deliberation at BBMUN 2020 on thought-provoking and relevant agendas will be instrumental in producing a paradigm shift in the outlook of delegates towards social justice and harmony. Each of you represents the most diverse, dynamic, and vibrant segment of our population, you represent our future leaders and decision-makers and through the platform of BBMUN 2020 all of you are in the unique position to understand and act upon the pressing challenges facing social justice in the world today.
This is a time for bold measures. This world demands the qualities of youth, a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of imagination and a predominance of courage over timidity.
Our team at BBMUN 2020 strongly believes in the power of young people.
I invite you to be the trustees, who wish not only to preserve the past but also nurture hope in creating a future to manifest the glory that is within each of us.
We hope to see you all in October 2020.
"The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes out life in harmony with all existence."

Our orientation must be futuristic and for that start living in present! Generations can live peacefully if work upon the present challenges.
The need of the hour is to bring about people of the world to a common forum where the conflicts can be resolved through engagement, dialogue and mutual understanding. Blue Bells Model School is providing an opportunity to students to work towards global peace, mutual co-operation and sustainable living. We, at BBMS, have always welcomed avenues that would allow our young, dynamic leaders to widen their horizons beyond mere text book knowledge and venture into the, as of yet, less explored areas of International Politics and Policy Making agencies.
Our aim is to continue roaring success like last years with the support of enterprising and hardworking Team members, BBMUN Secretariat and Teachers. I, sincerely, hope that last years’ success stories not only get replicated this year but metamorphoses into an eagerly anticipated event in the academic world. With this thought in mind, I would like to welcome you to BBMUN 2021 and its engaging and stimulating sessions ahead.

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the sixth edition of Blue Bells Model United Nations, to be held on August 20-21, 2021. As one of the most reputed Model UN Conferences
in Gurugram, BBMUN will uphold its standards of invigorating debate and enriching committee sessions. BBMUN conference is one of its kind in terms of both delegates and committees simulated, with around 1000 delegates attending the conference from all over the country across two years.
BBMUN is much more than a Model UN Conference, it is a platform which aims at building a community who believes in bringing about a change in the society and making the world a better place. With the same ideology BBMUN firmly stands with the theme of Social Innovation and Transformation . I believe if the youth innovates, transformation happens and that even a small idea can make a big difference. The difference is a progress and a little progress is still a progress.
My journey with Model United Nations Conferences has been one with many learnings that have shaped my opinions on multiple issues and expanded the horizons of my thought process and knowledge. The benefits of MUN go far beyond just enhancing communication skills. They structure your personality in a manner that suits the corporate and professional world in this time and age. We hereby present to you a platform to portray your mettle of debating, showcase your knack of dealing with international issues,which are in the hands of youth to solve. This is a forum for students across geographical boundaries to excel in the field of debate and diplomacy.
This being said I invite you to match the fervor of your dais at Blue Bells Model United Nations 2021 and be highly engaged and ready to learn from their expertise on an array of global issues.The measure of intelligence is the ability to change. Let us all put our intelligence together, to bring this change.
With that, Welcome to BBMUN’21, embark on this challenging journey.
From the Board of Advisors
Greetings to all participating institutions, associated partners and the young leaders of tomorrow.
The aspiration for social justice, through which every working man and woman can claim freely and on the basis of equality of opportunity their fair share of the wealth that they have helped to generate, is greater today than it ever was in recorded history. As the world faces a massive global challenge with an ongoing pandemic, the importance of achieving social justice is ever more pressing, with the rise in inequality and exclusion, which is a threat to social cohesion, economic growth and human progress. With climate change, demographic changes, technological development and, more generally, globalization, we are witnessing social structures that are changing at an unprecedented pace and scale. Social justice assigns the rights and duties in the institutions of our society, which enables people to receive the basic benefits and burdens of cooperation. Social justice helps us work toward celebrating diversity in our communities and country. A society that does not celebrate and acknowledge the differences that we are born with can naturally lead to resentment, hostility or even worse. While it is one thing to acknowledge that we belong to different strata of society, it is another thing to acknowledge that each of us has a unique background and story. Those stories must be respected by our communities, and by doing so, we create more cohesive, tight societies. It becomes imperative to address how stakeholders of a society can tackle these pressing challenges to achieve greater social justice and ensuring harmony in objectives.
Having been involved in Model UN Conferences for years, it is our firm belief that such conferences have a significant role in impacting and shaping the youth for they are the flagbearers of a better tomorrow. The sensitization, exposure and learnings associated with the agenda of such simulations are crucial to be taught to young students especially considering how the same are not readily available with them as part of their regular classroom curriculum. For this reason, we have chosen Social Justice and Harmony as the underlying theme for Blue Bells MUN 2020.
To ensure that all the participants have an enriching experience, we have interviewed and selected some of the most experienced, well-researched trainers and mentors for the students as the Chairpersons for each committee at Blue Bells MUN 2020. Every single action taken by us have the best interests of the Delegates at heart, as they will be carrying on the standard of leadership tomorrow. Your students need your support and guidance to give their best at Blue Bells MUN 2020. In case they require any assistance in preparation, please feel free to contact the Secretariat. We wish you and your students all the very best for the conference!
