From the Desk of Director
Dear Delegates & faculty members,
Today, we live in a world which is rife with technological change and a revolution in the field of education as digitalization has opened the portals of vast acquisition of knowledge and learning at the click of a mouse. The need of the hour is to empower the youth of today to take the onus of their learning and ensure its productive use. Such empowerment will contribute in checking the arms race, evading the unharnessed pride in power and drive away mutual conflicts from the face of the world.
We, at Blue Bells Model School, believe in providing such platforms to our ignited youth where they can look beyond mere looks and widen their horizons by deliberating on such International issues and draft policies.
To quote Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalaam, “The twenty-first century is about the management of all the knowledge and information we have generated and the value addition that we can bring to it.” The ignited youth of today is all set to work towards this change and add value to this fast-changing complex world. 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 towards a more positive and secure world.
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 sincerely look forward to offer a warm hospitality and unrelentless support in making this conference an incredible experience. I also extend my best wishes and greetings to all the delegates.
May this journey be a soulful empowerment 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."

Welcome you all to the most awaited happening event- BBMUN’20
I believe this year’s conference is a further step in taking ahead of the legacy of Blue Bells MUN Conference’20. Another MUN... Another Milestone… Another two days of learning, negotiating, discussing, and contemplating.
Being closely associated with this activity I can say MUN is not like any other school-level competition rather in a fast-shrinking world where ties amongst individuals are breaking it teaches students teamwork and hones their debating, writing, negotiating skills.
BBMUN Conference’20 is an endeavor to give the youth of today a micro-level exposure towards the grave issue the world faces today, to sensitize them towards the same and make them understand their roles as young leaders. With the current global scenario, there is a need to find solutions with a mutual consensus. We hope this year’s conference would provide the delegates a platform to step in the shoes of different member nations of the UN and work hard to come up with plausible solutions.
I would like to conclude with the words of Martin Luther King Jr. “A genuine leader is not a searcher of consensus but a molder of consensus”.
I, cordially invite you all to be a part of the esteemed BBMUN Conference.

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the fifth edition of Blue Bells Model United Nations. As one of the most prestigious Conference, BBMUN will uphold its high standard of invigorating debate and enriching conversation.
My journey with Model United Nations has been one with numerous lessons that have shaped my perceptions on multiple issues and made me think in ways that I couldn't manage before. The benefits of MUN go far beyond than just helping you with debating skills. They structure your personality in a manner that suits the corporate and professional world in this era. The stupendous nature of this competition brings about a sense of curiosity and responsiveness towards what is happening in the world.
BBMUN has always believed in collective growth. It aims to provide the Youth a platform to discuss and deliberate upon some of the world’s most vital issues and at the same time it hopes to challenge and inspire the delegates to take the lessons learned at the conference beyond the committee, continuing to grapple with the complex issues in the world today and work towards change. With the goal of always helping people to grow and bring out the best in them, this year BBMUN will revolve around the theme- Harmony and Social Justice. Harmony is not something that we can achieve with ease but is something that we should strive for. At the same time it is necessary to ensure proper and balanced implementation of policies so as to make social justice an effective vehicle of social progress.
This being said I challenge you to match the fervor of our dais at BBMUN and be highly engaged and ready to learn from their expertise on an array of global issues. But before you start your preparations let me remind you, we have the greatest opportunity to be the most important part of history that can be made. We are the hope and the change. a
With that, Welcome to BBMUN’20, embark this challenging journey.

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!
