Welcome to MUNA 2020
Dear delegates, Studenten Officers, MUN-Directors and Guests,
In the midst of the preparations of MUNA 2020, I would love to warmly welcome you to the 15th edition of MUNA. We have an incredible staff that has been working very hard and passionately for the last few months on the organisation of this conference, during school but also in their spare time. We cannot wait to welcome everybody to MUNA. I especially like to welcome the National School of Physics and Math from Kazachstan and Isendoorn from the Netherlands as this is their first time joining the conference.
This year’s theme is ‘Worlds apart, one world together’. The idea behind this is that nobody is the same and everyone has their own opinion, own religion, own political views. But does that mean that we cannot be live in a pluralistic society where everybody is equal and treated with respect? We at MUNA would love to show you that it IS possible to live together and to talk about our differences. During MUNA there are a lot of people who are from a different country who all have their own norms and values, therefore I would love to encourage you to start a conversation, talk about your differences but also about your similarities. This will bring us closer together!
The charity we are supporting this year during MUNA is an foundation that also has our theme at heart. The WakaWaka Foundation has a mission to share the sun and improve everyones situation on Earth using the sun. This foundation helps locals in developing countries by giving them products for emergency aid. These products are mostly wakawakas, which are safe, portable and sustainable, solar based light sources and power banks.
This MUNA I ask you to be inspired by this organisation and to think of how you would be able to better the Earth. And please remember that even though you might think that you play just a small part in changing this world, as long as take small steps everyday one day you will get there!
I cannot wait to meet you all and I wish you all a safe trip to our college.
Secretary General of MUNA 2020
