UN High Commission on Technology

THE COMMITTEE

Currently, UNHCT plays a pivotal role in the monitoring of technological innovation and focusing on the development of contingencies around the negative effects induced by the progress of this industry. These may include everything from advanced weaponry to the loss of labor intensive employment sectors.

 

In recent years, technology has evolved faster than ever before, accelerating at a pace beyond any other period in human history, thrusting the world into one brave new world after another. Technologies could reshape the world positively or cause widespread unemployment and illiteracy. Our committee will address these topics and produce a comprehensive series of guidelines for guaranteeing the rights of individuals over machines.

UNHCT is designed for MUNners with some familiarity with procedure. UNHCT will adopt standard THIMUN protocol.

THE TOPIC

CRYPTOCURRENCY

and its influences on modern society

”Cryptocurrency has become a famous topic over social media in recent years. It seems for all intents and purposes to be among the biggest trends of the modern era” While people might call it a bubble, the ways it will forever impact society and markets is something that cannot be ignored. Before an examination of cryptocurrency itself, one must be familiar with blockchain technology, the core technology behind cryptocurrencies.

This committee will examine coordinated efforts in properly regulating and managing this globally independent revolution and seek to anticipate future trends in blockchain technologies and plan for future disruptions across many industries.

Chair
Jimmy Tsou

Jimmy, the chair of UNHCT is currently a student studying in the UK. This conference will mark his 6th conference as a dais member. His passion towards MUN is what motivates him and most importantly, to excel in his attendance at DYNAMUN this year again. Overall, he is looking forward to see everyone of at the start of this summer!

Co-Chair
Jason Lin

Jason Lin, currently an 11th grader at Washington High School, has been dedicating himself in continuing and expanding his MUN career through eager participation on all fronts. With the experience of participating in nine conferences including two international ones in Tokyo, he is fully prepared to bring you delegates, hopefully, the most memorable MUN experience you have ever had. Jason will be serving as the co-chair of the High Commission on Technology (HCT) at DYNAMUN, as it marks his second time chairing a conference. It hasn't always been that way for Jason, though. Like the majority of you, he was once a first-time MUNer, sitting quietly at the back of the conference room and watching the clock tick by without making a speech of any kind. Throughout his relatively short MUN career, however, he slowly got used to the intense, propelling, and exciting atmosphere MUN creates. He believes wholeheartedly that challenges in life like MUN may pose a threat to his existing comfort zone, but they simultaneously open up new opportunities for him. He endeavors to let the delegates of his jurisdictional committee experience the changes he has undergone namely speaking; critical thinking; confidence building wise, as he progressed through his MUN career. He always told his delegates: “take the first step in trying—test the waters, so to speak—and let your first shot surprise you.”

Above all, he sincerely hopes y’all broaden all your horizons, make new friends, and have a wonderful experience at DYNAMUN!
