scenario from a logistical point of view.
Delegates of a simulated organ would be rushed

part of it:
"As you address vital global issues at the Sofia
International Model United Nations Conference over
the coming days, you will represent diplomacy as
it should be – countries and individuals coming
together to find solutions through constructive
debate. You will examine all different positions –
including views you may oppose. After the end of
the Conference, your skills, your ideas and your
initiative can contribute to providing those
global solutions that we need to achieve a safer,
healthier, more prosperous world."
