Shaping Tomorrow: THIMUN celebrates 50 years with anniversary book

Visitors to the THIMUN Hague 50th anniversary conference were in for a special treat: a wonderful book celebrating 50 years of student debate and MUN action, spanning 1968 to the very recent. The book highlighted stories from former delegates, MUN Directors, and individuals who have shaped the organization over its illustrious history.

The book was co-authored by two individuals who have made significant and lasting contributions to the THIMUN Foundation, David Williams, former chairman of the THIMUN Foundation, and Reinhardt Smit, former THIMUN Conference Manager. Together they clocked in hundreds of hours, sorting through old photos, newspaper clippings and reconnecting with dozens of individuals who have shaped the organization over the past 50 years.

Special highlights include a forward by HRH Princess Mabel van Oranje and special message from the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth, Jayathma Wickramanayake. THIMUN Qatar related stories were submitted by THIMUN Qatar’s founder, Cameron Janzen, SG and DSG for THIMUN Qatar 2018, Sandev Ferdinando and Sanskriti Tandon, TQ/O-MUN leader Kabir Sethi, and the HELA story by Rahmatullah Hamdard.
