Or­gan­ised by Qatar Foun­da­tion's Qatar Academy schools and THIMUN Foun­da­tion, the three-day con­fer­ence brought to­gether more than 1,800 Model United Na­tions (MUN) stu­dents from over 80 in­ter­na­tional schools and 36 lo­cal schools, rep­re­sent­ing 87 na­tion­al­i­ties. The cer­e­mony was of­fi­cially opened with the Flags Pro­ces­sion led by par­tic­i­pat­ing stu­dent del­e­ga­tions, with the wel­come ad­dress given by THIMUN Qatar Sec­re­tary Gen­eral, Ahmed Al Ha­jari, who said, "It 's su­perb train­ing from where to ex­pe­ri­ence what the UN is about, and to con­trib­ute ac­tively and of­fer fresh solutions. The UN is the only le­git­i­mate world­wide plat­form where coun­tries can meet to reach solutions to global is­sues. These stu­dents learn how to give and take, and how to build coali­tion. The con­fer­ence is also won­der­fully or­gan­ised which is re­flected in the fact that there are so many coun­tries rep­re­sented at what is the big­gest MUN in the Mid­dle East.” The open­ing cer­e­mony was also at­tended by a num­ber of am­bas­sadors and United Na­tions di­plo­mats.
