Welcome to MUNA 2021
Dear Delegates, Student Officers, MUN-Directors and Guests,
First of all, on behalf of the entire MUNA Board and Staff, my very best wishes for the new year. I hope 2021 will bring you good health and lots of happiness.
By means of this letter, I would love to warmly welcome you to the 16th edition of our conference: MUNA 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the consequences thereof (lockdown, closing of the schools, restrictions on travelling, etc.), this year, MUNA will be taking place on the ninth of April 2021 instead of our three-day conference in February. In order to preserve everyone’s health and comply with the safety measures taken by the Dutch government, for all of our delegates other than those of the Alfrink College, MUNA will be hosted as an online conference. Of course, we would have loved to see all of you in real life, however, we are glad that we can at least offer an online alternative, since all other MUN conferences in the Netherlands have been cancelled entirely this year.
MUNA 2021 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 combine 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.
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 the students that cannot come to us, will still have an amazing MUNA experience that will last a lifetime.
An extensive letter containing all information about the alternative conference will be sent to the MUN-Directors of the participating schools in the second week of January.
If you have any questions, we would love to answer them for you. You can either contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org, this year’s Conference Manager via email@example.com or one of our Senior Staff Members via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Secretary General of MUNA 2021
