Dear MUN enthusiasts,
It is our pleasure to announce that Amsterdam University College will be hosting its fourth Model United Nations conference in the heart of Europe, Amsterdam. AUCMUN is still young and growing, with more engaged and involved students applying each year. As the Secretary General, I am pleased to announce that we will keep on expanding from last year where we welcomed 225 delegates from 62 diverse countries. This year, we open up the conference to 300 delegates by offering a total of 12 committees, out of which two are crisis.
Through this conference, we aim to ensure that participants develop a deep understanding of international affairs, partake in a multicultural network and discover the vibrant city of Amsterdam. Here, students turn into diplomats who focus on conflict resolution, surpassing power politics. By allowing students to take on such roles, we can empower the youth. They view critical world politics through different eyes and start thinking of innovative resolutions. Through this, participants will discover the value of tolerance and diplomatic discussions.
At AUCMUN’19 we will build on the success of last year’s conference and take a further step towards solving global issues and establishing change and progress. With this in mind, I look forward to many fruitful debates, excellent socials and hope to see you in Amsterdam from 5th – 7th April 2019.
Secretary-General of AUCMUN 2019
