Next Muna conference   February 15-17 2023

A conference that cares

Welcome to MUNA 2023

 

Dear Delegates, Student Officers, MUN-Directors, and Guests,

 

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 18th edition of the Model United Nations Alfrink (“MUNA”), which will be held from the 15th to the 17th of February 2023.

Over the past few months, our exceptional staff has been working on the preparations for the conference. After two years of online MUNA due to the global pandemic we are overjoyed to inform you that MUNA 2023 will be held physically at our school in Zoetermeer, the Netherlands. When necessary, we will adapt to any government regulations, but we are expecting a fully physical conference. We will let you know if anything changes over the upcoming months.

 

I would also like to announce this year’s theme for MUNA: “Embracing Differences”. During the course of MUNA, we aim to highlight and emphasize the importance of embracing our differences. Differences between cultures, religions, ideologies, governments, and individuals. A recurring problem throughout the entire world is people dismissing each other’s views and ideas, simply because they are different from one another. We want not only to accept each other’s differences, but also to embrace and celebrate them, so we can learn from each other and move forward. This theme will be the foundation for all issues discussed by the various committees during MUNA.

 

If you are new to our conference and you would like to participate, feel free to send me an email or apply through the “Contact” page. You will then receive all details for registration. Any updates regarding the conference will be send via email. You can also keep up with events leading up to MUNA through Instagram, Twitter and Facebook at @munalfrink.

 

Should you have any questions regarding MUNA 2023, do not hesitate to contact me at sgmuna@live.nl. I cannot wait to meet all of you at our conference!

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Anna Christians

 

Secretary-General of MUNA 2023

In the last ten years MUNA has worked together with several organisations in preparation for the conference. We are very grateful for the support we have received so far and look forward to continue our collaboration in the coming years.

We hope that other schools will also find their way to the exciting eductional programmes our partners have on offer. Examples are the programmes of Humanity House in the Hague and the talks of Human Rights Defenders organised by Justitia et Pax .

Since 2015 MUNA joins the initiative of Join the Pipe . We were inspired by the initiative of this growing social network of water tap drinkers to promote access to clean drinking water for everyone on this earth. Have a look at the video on the partnerspage about Join the Pipe here .

MUNA supports grassroots development projects such as Burma Children and  Street Survivors India . The MUNA staff works closely together with the people running the projects locally. In the coming years we hope to extend our contacts and projects. We will keep you updated about all our activities via our website.

In 2016 the MUNA staff collaborated with the Hague Peace projects in a film project you can read about on this page .

In 2019 MUNA built a partnership with world's largest Model United Nations community: MunPlanet .

A big thank you goes out to our sponsors as well. We can't organize MUNA without their support.  Especially Fonds 1818 has been a big support for us. On the sponsor page you can see a list of our sponsors.
