Economic and Social Councils and Regional Bodies


Dear Delegates,


It is with great honor that I welcome all of you to HenMUN VI! The Secretariat and staff have been working tirelessly to provide you with the best MUN experience yet. We are all so excited to have you at our beautiful campus for a fun yet challenging conference in March.  


My name is Grant Zhao and I am your Under-Secretary General of Economic and Social Councils and Regional Bodies. I am a junior Mathematical Sciences major with a double major in Computer Science. I grew up in Hockessin, Delaware and started my MUN career in my sophomore year of high school. I originally competed at HenMUN I-III and eventually joined the staff as Assistant Director of Anonymous in HenMUN IV and Chair of the International Monetary Fund in HenMUN V. HenMUN was an amazing experience for me as a delegate and one of the major reasons I stuck with MUN. I hope to give back to the conference and make it even better than my predecessors.


My goals as USG of ECOSOC are to bring diversity to the conference, foster new ways of thinking and open-mindedness, and provide a unique and realistic MUN experience. I invite students of all interests to experiment with MUN, even those less versed in international relations and politics. I encourage you to challenge yourself and your peers to solve real world problems with new and innovative ways of thinking. I hope you leave this conference with an understanding and appreciation of the struggles actual delegates, diplomats, and politicians face, as well as a fun experience to share with your peers.


I look forward to meeting all of you in March. Please feel free to email me any questions, comments, or concerns. I will respond as quickly as possible. I hope you are all as excited as I am for HenMUN VI!

Organization Overview


This organ at HenMUN contains a diverse set of committees ranging from criminal justice to science and technology. These committees are typically smaller than General Assemblies but discuss similar types of contemporary issues. The Regional Bodies are also smaller than the General Assemblies but provide delegates with the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge concerning one specific region of the world. These committees may even have a crisis element thrown in.
