Vice-Chairperson, World Bank

Mr. Christian Wollny (Germany)

 

Christian is a German-American from Hamburg, Germany. For his studies, he moved to Moscow where he is currently a student of International Relations at MGIMO University. Together with his friends, he founded “Future World Diplomats” (FWD), MGIMO’s only English-speaking student club with the aim of connecting with other universities worldwide. FWD organizes videoconferences with universities such as Cambridge (UK), Georgetown (USA), Science Po (France), or even ITAM (Mexico). FWD have just finished their first conference together with UNWE in Bulgaria, called the “Sofia Model Balkan Union”, which is based on the MUN concept and ideals. Christian believes international relations function best at the personal level. By establishing dialogue, many of today’s issues can be combatted. While not necessarily abolished, dialogue enables understanding of the other side and can lead to an amicable solution. Christian’s interest in MUN started in his first year of study, when he participated at MIMUN (now C-MIMUN). Since then, he has participated in other MUNs all over the world, most notably in Cuba and Crimea. Christian will be chairing at GIMUN 2018 in Geneva. His interest in diplomacy, the UN and international affairs in general kept him in the world of MUN and lead him to the point of co-chairing the World Bank at MUNRFE. Christian is already looking forward to intense and fruitful debates in the World Bank which he hopes will bring along a deeper understanding of the issues at hand.

"Dear Delegates! I look forward to meeting you all at this year’s MUNRFE conference in Vladivostok! Model UN is truly an extraordinary and unique experience the people you meet here are people that you will share that special bond with the rest of your life. Have fun!”
