BARCELONA INTERNATIONAL MODEL UNITED NATIONS ESADE
23-25 APRil 2021
"unity through adversity"
Honourable delegates, Student Officers, Faculty advisors and staff,
With the evolution of the global crisis surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we firmly believe that it is vital for us to change and adapt with the times for academically and culturally enriching activities such as the BIMUN ESADE 2021 conference to prevail against adversity whilst preserving the excellence of the experience we provide. To this end, we have decided to transition the conference from an in-person model to a hybrid, with an online version for whoever is unable or does not desire to travel and an in-person version for those able to meet us in Barcelona, Spain on April 23rd-25th 2021.
On one hand, the online conference will be carried out on a platform that allows for online voting, private messaging between delegates and an organized debate with a great flow of ideas. Our main objective is for there to be the smoothest transition possible between an in-person model and an online one. To do so we have decided to maintain many of the most beloved events of BIMUN such as the teambuilding and the intricacies of committee work among many others. We strive to allow all participants to partake in a high-quality, professional conference, regardless of from where they join us. The new participation fee for this option will be 45€.
On the other hand, the in-person conference will remain the same as it has been in previous editions of the conference in compliance with the BIMUN ESADE 2021 COVID-19 Protocol also found on our website. Moreover, the option to stay at the Hotel Sant Cugat, a 4-star hotel in the centre of the city with whom we partner, at walking distance from the location where the debate sessions will be held remains. All further information regarding the in-person format of the conference can be found on our website and the fees as stated will be maintained.
The main framework of the conference will be as follows:
On one hand, a virtual conference with ECOSOC, UNESCO and WHO.
On the other hand, an in-person conference following the format we have used for the past 6 years with Security Council and UNODC.
In order for us to get an approximate estimate of how many participants we will have, we would like to kindly ask you to fill in this Google Forms, this helps us to prepare both models of the conference to best cater to the needs of our participants. It deeply saddens us that we will not be able to meet all of you face-to-face come April but we are positive that this new hybrid model will allow us to maintain both the quality of the conference and the enriching experience it provides for all, albeit in a different way. Now, more than ever before, it is essential for us to strive for Unity through Adversity and ensure that the trials and tribulations we are currently facing do not impede the furthering of the education of young people.
We genuinely hope to see you all at BIMUN ESADE 2021 whether that be digitally or face-to-face. For any further information or queries please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through our website (www.bimunbarcelona.com).
