A conference that cares

About MUNA

Model United Nations Alfrink (MUNA) is an annual simulation of the United Nations. For three days, students from all over the world gather at the Alfrink College in Zoetermeer (the Netherlands) to debate on current global issues, just like the delegates of the United Nations do. MUNA 2021 will be the 16th edition of the conference and is going to evolve all around the inspiring theme of ‘Rebuilding the Future’.

MUNA started in 2005 as a small project for Dutch students only. Over the past fifteen years, MUNA has grown to become a friendly and international MUN conference with approximately 300 delegates attending every year. MUNA is proud to be a 'starters' conference and gives students who are not yet very familiar with debating on global issues a chance to participate. However, in the meantime, we also offer loads of opportunities for more experienced debaters to improve their skills. Most of all, our MUN conference is a lot of fun debating and making international friends!

 

 

 

 

At MUNA, we believe that during the debating, we should not lose sight of the people behind the issues or statistics and the people whose lives are directly affected by the issues discussed at the MUNA conference.

In order to do this, the MUNA staff has reached out to several grassroots development projects around the world. Every year, we highlight one grassroots project at the conference as our MUNA charity of the year. The thing that is quite unique about the MUNA charity effort, is the fact that the MUNA staff works directly with the people who run the local project and so we also work together in preparation for the MUNA conference. 

You can read everything about this year's charity on the MUNA Charity page .

We will try our best to give the people behind the statistics a face and a voice during our conference.
