Next Muna conference   February 15-18, 2022

A conference that cares

Welcome to MUNA 2022

Dear delegates, Student Officers, MUN-Directors and Guests,

It is my great pleasure and honour to welcome you to the 17th edition of the Model United Nations Alfrink (''MUNA'') in February 2022. Our outstanding staff has been working relentlessly for the past few months on the first preparations for the conference. Considering the fact that we have lived in a global crisis for almost two years now, we are delighted that our upcoming conference will be held physically at Alfrink College. Looking at the current situation surrounding COVID-19, and, of course, subject to any new developments, we expect to be able to welcome students from all over the world. We will, however, comply with any government regulation when necessary. More details on MUNA during/after the COVID-19 pandemic will be forthcoming.

I am also thrilled to announce that the theme for MUNA 2022 is ‘’Create Connections’’. With this theme, we would like to emphasize the importance of the connection between governments and citizens, between different communities (old & young), and, very topical, the connections made through social media. We, as the organizers of MUNA, would like to show you that even on a small basis it is possible to make important connections. This theme will be evident in the issues that will be discussed by the various committees during MUNA. 

Especially for this MUNA, I would like to kindly ask you to think of ways that we as individuals can stay connected with each other, even in times like pandemics. You might think that you only play a small part in the world, but remember, it takes small connections to make the world go round.

For any questions regarding MUNA 2022, you can either contact me at secretarygeneral.muna@gmail.com or any of our Senior Staff Members (e-mails can be found on the ‘Staff’ page). 

I am looking forward to meeting all of you and I wish you all a safe trip to our college.

Yours sincerely,

Shaad Othman

Secretary-General of MUNA 2022

We hope that other schools will also find their way to the exciting eductional programmes our partners have on offer. Examples are the programmes of Humanity House in the Hague and the talks of Human Rights Defenders organised by Justitia et Pax .

Since 2015 MUNA joins the initiative of Join the Pipe . We were inspired by the initiative of this growing social network of water tap drinkers to promote access to clean drinking water for everyone on this earth. Have a look at the video on the partnerspage about Join the Pipe here .

MUNA supports grassroots development projects such as Burma Children and  Street Survivors India . The MUNA staff works closely together with the people running the projects locally. In the coming years we hope to extend our contacts and projects. We will keep you updated about all our activities via our website.

In 2016 the MUNA staff collaborated with the Hague Peace projects in a film project you can read about on this page .

In 2019 MUNA built a partnership with world's largest Model United Nations community: MunPlanet .

A big thank you goes out to our sponsors as well. We can't organize MUNA without their support.  Especially Fonds 1818 has been a big support for us. On the sponsor page you can see a list of our sponsors.
