Secretary General

Donghyun Ethan Kim

Honorable chairs, delegates, advisors, and guests,


My name is Ethan Kim, a senior at Gyeonggi Suwon International School, and it is my honor to welcome you to the second iteration of GSISMUN as the Secretary General. 


In the past year, our world was presented with unprecedented challenges. With extreme climate events and locust swarms, we saw the alarming impacts of climate change. More recently, the COVID-19 pandemic caused chaos across the globe, forcing us to make immense sacrifices. 


The status quo is best described by the theme for GSISMUN II: "Chaos | Complacency | Creativity." We must listen to our experts and implement 21st century innovations if we are to address the issues humanity faces today. Most importantly, to be well-prepared for the issues of the future, we need to avoid complacency in our solutions.


I hope all delegates approach each issue in a different light, exercising creativity to develop novel solutions.


Donghyun Ethan Kim

Secretary General of GSISMUN II
