MUNA 2016 supports The Hague Peace Projects

MUNA 2016 will collaborate with The Hague Peace projects in preparation for the conference of 2016. Former MUNA keynote speakers Jakob de Jonge and Sylvestre Bwira started this new initiative, together with other experts in the fields of Conflict, Peace and Justice.

The mission of the Hague Peace Projects is "to contribute to peaceful solutions to (armed) conflicts by providing relevant information to decision makers and the wider public about the root causes of these conflicts. By researching, analyzing and clarifying the often complex contexts and realities of (armed) conflicts, the Hague Peace Projects will assist and encourage actors on all levels to take the necessary actions that lead to conflict resolution and eventually peace."

The MUNA staff fully supports the mission of the Hague Peace projects and together we have decided to use the money raised to support one of their peace building projects in Eastern Congo.

We are proud to welcome back Jakob de Jonge and Sylvestre Bwira as keynote speakers during the opening ceremony of MUNA 2016.

The Hague Peace projects and MUNA collaborate this year in creating a documentary about life in DR Congo. You can read more about this documentary and how you can sponsor it on this page.

Two Lives, One World. Between Conflict and Peace.

The Hague Peace Projects and Alfrink College proudly present a documentary that shines a human light on living in conflict areas and that shows how we all can help to contribute to peace.

What ?

The documentary shows a week in the lives of two girls. One girl living in Zoetermeer and attending Alfrink College and one living in the Democratic Republic of Congo and attending a secondary school in Goma.

Goal

The goal of the documentary is to show how the two lives differ and connect at the same time. In doing so it becomes clearer what it is like to live in a conflict area. Moreover, because the viewer can identify with the two characters, bridges are built and questions are raised about what we all can do to work towards a peaceful world.

Sponsor

The Hague Peace Projects and the Alfrink MUNA staff took the initiative to create this documentary. The project still needs a lot of funding in order to complete the documentary. What you can do to support the project is to sponsor the film by ‘buying’ a piece of the film. You can buy 2 Euro pieces. Your name name will be mentioned in the credits at the end of the film. You can also transfer money directly to IBAN NL39TRIO 0197 9213 37 of The Hague Peace Projects. Make sure to mention your name and 'Documentary Congo'.
