Welcome to MUNA 2021
Dear Delegates, Student Officers, MUN-Directors and Guests,
Hereby, I would love to warmly welcome you to the 16th edition of our conference: MUNA 2021. The conference will be taking place on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of February 2021. The coming year, MUNA will evolve all around the theme of 'Rebuilding the Future'. Everyone in the world is currently affected by the massive consequences of COVID-19 and similarly, throughout history, we have had to cope with many other huge disasters. Every time something like this occurred; our future crumbled to a certain extent. This has forced us to start combining our strengths and think of ways in which we could rebuild our future for the better. At MUNA 2021 we would love to take the first big step into accomplishing this goal together.
The MUNA Board and Staff Members are very aware of the widespread pandemic that is afflicting the entire world at the moment. Unfortunately, many MUNs have already been cancelled as a result of this crisis-situation. However, we have agreed on hosting our conference no matter what, because especially in times like these, solidarity and communication prove to be extremely important. Of course, we are hoping for the situation to have improved by next year's February, which would mean that we can meet all of you in real life and host the conference like we have been doing for the previous fifteen years. However, we will definitely not forget that there is a very reasonable chance that COVID-19 is still prevailing in society next year, which could mean that travelling is partially restricted. In this case, we will host MUNA as a semi-online conference in which students from abroad that cannot come to the Netherlands will take part in the debates by means of live streams. At all times, we will respect the measures taken by the Dutch government and preserving everyone's health will be our first priority.
Even though it might seem as if the conference is still far away, the preparations have already started months ago. This year, we have an incredible staff that has been working passionately on ensuring that the conference will be unforgettable for everyone. In particular, we are looking for ways to make sure that even the students that cannot come to us, will still have this amazing MUNA experience that will last a lifetime.
We have set the deadline for schools to register on 18th of September 2020, so please make sure to fill in the application form on this website or send your registration to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions, we would love to answer them for you. You can either contact me via email@example.com or one of our Senior Staff Members via firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am looking forward to receiving your registration forms and welcoming you to our conference in February 2021.
Secretary General of MUNA 2021
