COMUN 16th of February 2019

Dear Sir, Madam,

On behalf of the Secretariat and Executive Staff, you are cordially invited to participate in the fourth edition of our Coornhert Model United Nations hosted at the Town Hall in Gouda, The Netherlands on Saturday the 16th of February 2019.

COMUN is a one-day Model UN conference organised by students attending the Coornhert Gymnasium in Gouda. This year’s Secretariat will once again consist of four enthusiastic students, with Lise Duijvestijn, Emma Docter, Thomas Urgert and Jent Imelman. For the fourth time, we are organising a conference for students with an interest in debate and international politics. Our unique one-day conference structure means COMUN will have a full day of constructive debate, focusing on finding new ideas and sustainable solutions for the most pressing current global affairs.

The committees that will be present at COMUN are a Security Council (with a two-person delegation per country), a Human Rights Council, a Crisis Committee and an African Union. These committees will be focusing on issues regarding this year’s conference theme: ‘Religious Conflicts’.

We are looking forward to seeing you at COMUN 2019!

Yours faithfully,
The secretariat of COMUN 2019
