The press is an independent force, putting forth multiple perspectives of a situation. As a member of the International Press, it is our power as well as our responsibility to create a bridge between the decision-makers and the people. We have confidence in your ability to use words and illustrations to incite change: to impel the readers for action, to influence opinions, and most importantly, to carry out unbiased reports in the impressionable world we live in today. It is the task of the journalist to unearth the unsaid. At times, a photograph captures the urgency of discussions in a manner that words cannot. Cartoons are a pivotal way to relate to the readers, hinting at perspectives and leaving them to the audience for interpretation. It is in your hands to use your words and images to their greatest capacity- to be soul-stirring and forceful.
On behalf of the International Press Bureau, we welcome all journalists, cartoonists, and photographers to observe our simulations as they unfold, disseminate information, explore the conference, and share your experiences. Publish your stories and cause a change through the SBSMUN publication, The Fourth Estate.
