Our History begins in 2015 when parallelly two groups of students of the Autonomous University of Yucatán (UADY), one from Highschool 1 and the other one from the Law Faculty, had the idea of recreate a Model United Nations to generate a space in which the young people had the oportunity to recreate the diplomatic exercise realized at the United Nations (UN).
To consolidate the Model United Nations of the Autonomous University of Yucatán (UADYMUN) it was necesary to generate a link with the UADY; by one side a group starts conquering social media as Twitter, generating the account@uadymunoficial and the other one assists to the Feria Internacional del Libro en Yucatán (FILEY) where they accomplish reaching the rector of this Institution by realizing the gesture of touching his shoulder they get his attention to briefly talk of the project and this is how they achieved schedule a metting to introduce the project.
Once reunited the two groups and thanks to the inconditional support of the UADY and the Academic Development Managment Department (DGDA) decided to unite forces, ideas and above all commitment to make the First Edition of UADYMUN. In this First Edition UADYMUN 2015 was appointed two General Secretaries, Katia Sofía Villareal as the Highschool #1 group and Mádelin Guadalupe Bernal Escalante as part of the Law Faculty group.
The First Edition was full of learnings and served to be able to understand the necesary fundamentals to make a Model United Nations and already consolidated the UADYMUN Team, Mario Luna Mena is appointed as General Secretary of UADYMUN 2016.
For the Third Edition, UADYMUN 2017, is appointed as General Secretary the Br. Fernando David Mora Da Silva. In this edition of UADYMUN the idea of holding a previous event known as “Open Forum” arises, this event looks to bring closer the young people with influential people of our community so then we can promote the dialog between the student sector with the activist, business, public administration among other sectors. Similarly, debate contests are held to encourage student participation.
In the Fourth Edition, UADYMUN 2018, the next General Secretary was the Br. Rubén Solórzano Sélem. In this edition we achieve a greater reach and for the first ocassion part of the UADYMUN Team had the opportunity to participate in the Future We Want MUN with H.Q. at the N.Y.C during the month of march 2018. This allowed us to expand our horizons and inspires us to keep growing. Is in this edition when surges the “Vivir la #ExperienciaUADYMUN” motto.
In the Fifth Edtion, celebrating the first lustrum, was the turn of the Br. Lucelly Aimé Ordaz Molina to be the General Secretary of UADYMUN 2019. In this edition we participated again in the Future We Want MUN in which we obtained a total of 9 Recognitions for an outstanding participation. In adittion to the above we had sought to stablish links with the Senate of the Republic, differents NGO as well as to promote participation of the private business sector. Thanks to our team, it was possible to reach the 17 UADY facilities as well as to create new previous events like Panel Tables and Conferences. For the first time an International Announcement is published so we can count on locals, nationals and internationals.
But we have not stopped yet for the UADYMUN history is still writing…
