Nowadays the most stable and prosperous countries are those, that has developed economy, because in every country economy is the backbone of everything. It is the same in Afghanistan, If the country wants to reach a stable peace, first of all the economy should be developed. HELA believes we can not develop our economy until we do not involve the young generation in different parts and they should be given the chance to take part in debates over economical issues. Therefore, we held the first ever ECOSOC mini conference on the mentioned issue, and about 40 youth took part in that debate.
The conference was started with a brief training of the MUN procedures and also explanation of the ECOSOC rules. Then the delegates were given the chance to present their policy statements on the mentioned issue. After the policy statements the delegates started lobbying and they formed two groups, where they worked on making two resolutions on the issue. The delegates successfully finished lobbying and formed two resolutions. Then delegates started debating on the resolutions and the Amendments. The debate was very interesting and engaging, at the end of the debate the resolutions were sent for voting, one of the resolutions were passed with majority while the other was rejected.
The conferences was ended with getting the feedbacks of delegates about the conference, all of them were really happy at the end, and requested HELA management team to have more of these conferences in the future. The delegates were given their certificates of participation at the end, and also their digital certificates were sent to their emails.
