The theme of the conference was future hope. Delegates were able to establish a global mind set and the enhance the ability of group work. The simulation urged participating delegates to use lessons learned to pursue efforts towards a better world, with understanding that is more common and concrete solution to global issues.

The gala dinner on Saturday night was particularly successful. Thanks to all the students and staff whose valuable contributions made DCMUN II agreat success.
