Heading for Health and Humanity

 People suffer from diseases and hunger. Thousands of children, women and men are killed by natural catastrophes. And as if that were not enough: humankind jeopardizes itself; civil wars, boundary disputes and terrorism threaten today’s world. But there is always a way out.

We shall believe in our capability to change things into good.

That’s why we dedicated our 8th Baltic Model United Nations Conference to this topic: health and humanity.

Certainly, there are innumerable issues that need to be dealt with. Punishments for terroristic acts, disaster management, treatment of refugees, access to drink water and gender equality are just some of them.

You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty”, Gandhi once said.

In times of war, agony and poverty we must stand together. There is neither place for hatred nor for violence or racism.

Let’s show the world that mankind can be better, that we can help each other. You may set an example with your participation in BALMUN 2015.

I’m looking forward to seeing you from May 28th to May 31st in our beautiful Hanseatic city of Rostock.
