Svgs chair - Joakim Higgins Solvold
My name is Joakim Higgins Solvold, and I will be chairing in DISEC during this years SANMUN. I am doing the IB course at SVGS. I started taking part in MUN late last year. I attended SANMUN 2018 with very little experience. Even though, I lacked a lot of experience and knowledge, just taking part in the debates during the event was very useful and interesting. Hence, for this years SANMUN I will be one of the chairs. DISEC is an interesting committee full packed with great debates. Nevertheless, you should of course have fun while being there. I am looking forward for all of you attending this year.
Nesbru chair - Halvor Grøstad
My name is Halvor Grøstad. I’m from Nesbru, and I am currently doing the IB Diploma Program at Nesbru VGS. I have participated at several MUN-conferences, both at local, national and international level, in addition to similar concepts such as MEP. This conference will be my second time participating at SANMUN, and my first shot as a chair. This will no doubt be a challenge, but I am certain to benefit greatly from the experience.
I am really looking forward to the SANMUN-conference of 2019. I will serve as the Chair of the Committee of Disarmament and International Security (DISEC), where the question of cyber-terrorism and the question of child pornography on the dark web will be tackled. I am looking forward to working with the delegates, and I am certain that through cooperation, discussions and consultations, we will be able to present strong and thorough resolutions. Collaborating on finding solutions to handle such pressing issues will prove beneficial for us all.
