The long awaited
moment is fast approaching! The very apt theme of “Defining NATO capabilities towards 2020 - Meeting Future Global
Security Challenges through Cooperation, Collaboration and Crisis Management,”
will undoubtedly leave us with unforgettable memories.
For MoNYS 2013
to become a reality, a strong and willing team of 38 people from 16 different
countries have put all their skills into coordinating the biggest NATO
decision-making simulation in the world. The MoNYS team is offering you the
chance to broaden your horizons, improve your skills,
and forge new friendships in a multicultural environment.
If you thought
that the last edition was great, wait until July to experience something
greater; 212 competent participants from over 35 countries will take the role
of individual delegates, members of delegations, and journalists. Moreover, special
guests will fascinate all participants by providing an outlook on the
diplomatic world. Most importantly, the topics to be debated on will be of such
importance thus requiring crisis and stress management skills. So brace yourselves
for an unforgettable experience with inspirational people.
This year, the
participants will represent the interests of 50 NATO affiliated countries and
simulate the activities of six councils and committees: the Euro-Atlantic
Partnership Council (EAPC), the Political Partnership Committee (PPC), the
Defense Policy and Planning Committee (DPPC), the Operations Policy Committee
(OPC), the Deputies Committee, and the NATO-Russia Council (NRC).
We look forward
to meeting all of you in Brussels, from the 8th to the 13th
