My name is Thomas Mitropoulos, I am 21 years old, I am an undergraduate Law student at Democritus University of Thrace, Komotini and this year I have the great honor to serve as the Secretary-General of FredMUN 2017. In none of the cases, the choice of the word “honor” can be considered coincidental; FredMUN is officially endorsed and supported by the United Nations promoting the pure essence of diplomacy, dialogue, cooperation and professionalism combined with warm hospitality and friendly atmosphere. Aiming to accuracy, proposing innovative ideas and finding applicable solutions for issues of utmost importance and global interest set further cornerstones, on which this unique conference is based. The participation of over 100 delegates during its first session stands as the uncontested proof for all the aforementioned.
As for me, passionate with international politics and diplomacy I have taken part in almost 20 conferences around Europe (i.e. Switzerland, United Kingdom, Belgium, the Netherlands, Cyprus, Greece) always believing that respect for different opinions, close collaboration and sincere dialogue constitute the core of every MUN conference. My “MUN career” started 7 years ago and till now I have gained a plethora of unforgettable experiences that indelibly marked my life by altering my way of thinking and giving me the opportunity for self-development. This is exactly the reason why I keep participating in them; they function as a “great school” for lifelong learning. Should you wish to broaden your intellectual horizons, acquire knowledge about crucial global matters that affect our everyday life and meet new people, be an integral part of our, actually your “family”, FredMUN 2017. We are looking forward to meeting you at Nicosia, Cyprus!
Secretary-General of FredMUN 2017
