Your Chairs


Nesbru chair - Nora Ristvedt

My name is Nora Ristvedt, and I will be chairing the question of Implementing international legislation regarding cryptocurrencies. I am 18 years old, and I am doing the IB at Nesbru vgs. I have been involved in MUN and MEP for 2 years now, and this will  be my 9th conference overall. However, this will be my first time chairing, something that I am looking forward to. I hope that you will find MUN just as exciting as I do! There is so much to learn, and I believe that you all will benefit greatly from taking part in this conference. I wanted to chair this particular committee, because it is the one that always appeals to me the most, and I believe that I can use my experience to help you with your resolutions. I also believe that the chosen issues will spark many interesting discussions, and that you all will come up with many brilliant resolutions.

I am looking forward to meeting all of you, and to a fruitful round of debates! 


SVGS chair -   Aslak Henden-Leivdal

My name is Aslak and I am an 18-year-old 3IB-student at Sandefjord Videregående Skole. I started my MUN career in his 1 st IB year, as a delegate. The first conference that I attended was the mini-SANMUN, in the fall of 2018. The same year, I attended SANMUN as a delegate, representing the United Kingdom in the DISEC committee. In the beginning of 2019, I was promoted to chair, making me part of the executive committee in the SANMUN conferences. This year, I will be chairing in the ECOSOC committee.

Apart from MUN, I spend my time on fencing and playing tennis, which I have done for over 4 years. I am also an experienced violin player, especially in classical music. Need a movie recommendation? Ask Aslak, as I am very enthusiastic about them.
