Greetings Delegates and Faculty Members,
It is with great pleasure that I invite you to SNAMUN 2021 as the Director-General of the 4th edition of SANAWAR Model United Nations. The theme of this year’s MUN is “Non Progredi Est Regredi,” Latin for “To not go forward is to go backward.”In the struggling times of the Covid 19 pandemic, things were brought to a standstill with great looming anxiety of the future on our heads but we persevered through it. Progress is made only by moving forward even if it is bit by bit. We bring the opportunity of SNAMUN as a chance to keep progressing our abilities of debate, deliberation and diplomacy.
International politics keeps moving its cycle in law, war and diplomacy no matter the challenges and we must do the same. Due to Covid 19 we will not be able to host you on our beautiful 174 years old campus but we wish to make sure that all delegates don’t miss out the best of debates and fast paced diplomacy. This year we bring to the MUN an exact scenario of the most testing times that humanity faces from the fall of the Iron curtain in 1991 to the economic and social fallout of the Covid 19 crisis, and the ability to prevent these crisis and future ones as world leader’s representative of the people who though stand in divisions of gender, caste, creed and religion, language and country but are united in the spirit called humanity. We wish to make sure that in spite of these divisions progress is not stopped.
In conclusion, I would like to quote Cesar Chavez for this “We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community... Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.”
With Warm Regards
Simar Singh Gabadia
Greetings Delegates and Faculty Advisors,
It is my honour and privilege as the Secretary-General to welcome you to the 4th edition of The Lawrence School, Sanawar Model United Nations Conference – 2021, to be held virtually in August this year.
In today’s day, humanity is going through a trial in this pandemic – a test of our patience, strength and ability to cooperate. This pandemic has taken a toll on every aspect of our life and disrupted conventional definitions of normalcy. The Coronavirus took a great many lives and endangered basic means of human survival including oxygen. Yet, while the current situation looks dystopian, we must not lose hope, because without the dark, we would never see the stars. Vincent Van Gogh had said, “Even in the storm, there is peace.” So, this pandemic is also an opportunity to reach new roads for mankind – roads of sustainability, awareness and consciousness towards our future of the planet, the vulnerability of the human race and the power of shared effort. SNAMUN’21 gives to each one of you, a chance to reach onto those roads.
The pandemic brought normal life to a standstill. Growth and development of humanity came to an abrupt stop and was pushed back by a multitude of years. Thus, we foster the theme, “Non Progredi est Regredi” which is Latin for ‘To not go forward is to go backward.’ At this critical time in the world, each one of us has a moral responsibility to move forward in whatever capacities we can. SNAMUN’21 will offer you a chance to not only make a difference, but also edify yourself in skills of public debate, critical thinking, diplomacy and contextual deliberation. Unfortunately, we cannot have the pleasure of hosting you tangibly at the picturesque campus of The Lawrence School, Sanawar, we are certain that nothing will affect constructive debate on a virtual platform, from the safety of your homes. Extended information on our conference can be taken from the SNAMUN website and social media handles. I sincerely look forward to your participation in the SNAMUN’21.

Secretary – General
