KICSMUN

 

KICSMUN XV could be summarized in three words.

Unprecedented. Challenging. Successful.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced us to transition our conference to an entirely online experience, hence its unprecedented nature. We faced an endless tirade of unforeseeable challenges which impeded this transition, and at times, forced us to consider the possibility that KICSMUN XV may not happen. The KICSMUN XV team however, shouldered onwards and upwards and executed on our vision for a memorable and successful conference. While it was online, the conference was not short of its usual unforgettable moments of hilarity, such as when the President of the International Court of Justice was accused of corruption and bribery by the judges of the court! Most importantly however, seeing delegates share their same passion for intense debate and politics, regardless of the platform, was truly inspirational. Delegates managed to contrive creative solutions to the most pressing challenges facing our world today, and in doing so, reaffirmed and promoted a message of planetary unity and cooperation to all participants.

Trip to the Animal Shelter

In light of the theme for KICSMUNXV, “Protecting Our Planet: The March Towards Sustainability”, the KICSMUN team has collaborated with a local animal shelter over the winter break. 

Sudan Animal Rescue Centre (SAR) is an organization founded by Osman Salih and his team of self-proclaimed “animal lovers and activists” who are working on building a shelter right here in Khartoum with the aim of preserving wildlife in Sudan. The shelter already consists of enclosures for lions who have been rescued from local zoos and national parks, as well as a few other endangered species and is currently working on building more with the hopes of hosting a soft opening for the public by the end of January.

On the 6th January, the KICSMUNXV Executive and Secretariat teams spent the day at the centre and helped the team in setting up some of these enclosures. One group worked on painting what will become the hyena enclosure and setting up fencing inside of it, while another worked on clearing up the entrance pathway. Later in the day, we went on a tour of the grounds, meeting the animals and learning about the day-to-day experience of caring for them. We also met with several members of the team and were enthralled to see so many different people share this passion for preserving wildlife in Sudan. After this, the entire team worked on transporting plants to the entrance pathway, quickly setting up an efficient system for transporting them. 

The visit to the centre was inspiring, as it allowed us to interact with real people championing our cause right here in Khartoum. It served as a reminder for each and every one of us to do our best to help our community and we are proud to have helped this cause in any capacity.
