“The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes” – William James

After an amazing experience having been a part of the board of the 2017 edition of TICS, I am extremely pleased to be leading the great team of people organizing this year’s TICS. In my opinion, the heated debates and the fun socials in the setting of our picturesque little university town give the event an extremely special atmosphere. Many great connections were made here and fantastic moments have been shared – I’m excited to create some more!

„Truth is a deep kindness that teaches us to be content in our everyday life and share with the people the same happiness.” Khalil Gibran

Joining the TICS for the first time I’m very excited to work on new challenges as a member of a motivated organization team. It is a great experience to be able to discuss global challenges from different perspectives. I am really looking forward to this amazing event and the opportunity to meet new open-minded people from all over the world.

“Where the willingness is great, the difficulties cannot be great.”
Niccolò Machiavelli

As a member of the ExCom team in 2018, I really enjoined working in a great team and being part of a successful conference. I am really confident that it will be even greater this year.

You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.
– Woodrow Wilson

In 2018 I had the opportunity to take part in TICS and I did not quite know what to expect. It turned out to be an amazing experience. I had the fortune of meeting so many great people, during the conference and at the social events in the evenings. The conference itself provided such a great opportunity to debate and to engage in politics as well as quite memorable moments. That is why I want to contribute in making TICS 2019 a success.

“The future depends on what you do today” Mahatma Gandhi

As one of the members who organized TICS for the first time in 2016, I am very committed to the overall spirit and idea of TICS. After having participated in several Model United Nations Conferences and Crisis Simulations, I really can tell that it is an unforgettable experience you do not want to miss. It is a great place to debate, to change the world the way you would like to (if you could), and to meet new people from different countries and backgrounds. I am pleased to be able to organize yet another unique and memorable edition of TICS.

“The only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work hard for them.” – Michelle Obama

As a member of the ExCom team 2017 I had the chance to be part of an exciting crisis simulation meeting even greater people. I am honored to have the opportunity to bring another unforgettable conference to life.

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” -Lao Tzu

This year will be my first time participating in the event. I am a member of the United Nations university group and this is where I first heard about TICS. I decided to join the organizational team because it sounded like a lot of fun, a great opportunity to meet new people from all over the world and gain new perspectives on important political issues. I am really looking forward to it!

“Living in peace does not require big words, but many small steps”
– Egon Bahr

This is my first time participating in the TICS event and I am really looking forward to it.
I’ve heard much about TICS through the UNHGS and decided to join the TICS as a member of the organisation team as well as a participant in the conference itself.
This year I want to use this opportunity to debate about politics and to meet new people.

“Political correctness does not legislate tolerance, it only organizes hatred” – Jacques Barzun

Since my participation in TICS 2017, I have been greatly fond of the idea of enabling a space for civil, productive (and at times hilarious) discussions. It is more important than ever to enable room for exchange and altering of ideas. For if we do not practice how to formulate and articulate or arguments now, then this malice will stick with us for much longer than we would like it to.

Markus Buchner – Socials

“Then why do you want to know?”
“Because learning does not consist only of knowing what we must or we can do, but also of knowing what we could do and perhaps should not do.”
― Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose

What better way could there be for us, who are interested in political education and the understanding of political processes, than to learn through personal experience?
For another year the TICS provides a safe space for an encounter of minds and a playground of new ideas and more so, it might even contribute in creating a better future.
Because of that I am very glad to help enable this years meeting and participate for the first time.
