Welcome to this year’s conference!


Dear Delegates,

on behalf of the entire MUNelly team we would like to welcome you to the eighth annual conference of Model United Nations at Nelly-Sachs-Gymnasium Neuss. It is also the first conference we will have in a digital version because of the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Therefore, we chose this year’s topic “The Show Must Go On - The World Facing COVID-19”, which focuses on what seems to be – or should be – of importance for everyone of us. The global COVID-19 pandemic had and has an enormous influence on all people around the world. Of course, there is the health-risk this virus has, but there is also the severe economic and social impact the global pandemic makes us face. Therefore, we will discuss how to restore the global economy, how we can provide vaccines and hygiene standards to all humans around the world, how to promote the children’s education and the children’s human rights and to what extent one can people can accept lockdowns to protect themselves and others from COVID-19.

Although our time together is limited, we will make the best of it and are looking forward to an interesting conference, which you will hopefully enjoy as much as we did planning it.

What is MUN?

"Model United Nations is an authentic simulation of the UN General Assembly, UN Security Council, or other multilateral body, which catapults students into the world of diplomacy and negotiation. In Model UN, students step into the shoes of ambassadors of UN member states, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe to debate current issues on the Organization's vast agenda.

The students, better known as "delegates" in Model UN, prepare draft resolutions, plot strategy, negotiate with supporters and adversaries, resolve conflicts, and navigate the UN's rules of procedure-all in the interest of mobilizing "international cooperation" to resolve problems that affect almost every country on Earth."
