Dear sir, madam,
On behalf of the Secretariat and Executive Staff, we would like to inform you of the date of the sixth edition of COMUN, a Model United Nations conference hosted at the Coornhert Gymnasium in Gouda, the Netherlands. It is to take place on the 5th, 6th and 7th of February 2021. We are well aware of the uncertainty in which the near future is shrouded, because of the corona pandemic. We will keep a close eye on all developments and follow all health and safety guidelines set forth by the Dutch government. In due time, we will notify you of how this is expected to affect the conference.
In recognition of the unpredictability, we have opened a pre-registration, the submission of which does not require a down payment nor obliges you to attend. It merely serves to ascertain your students of a place at the conference. The form is available here.
Since its inception in 2016, COMUN has been organised every year by a quartet of highly motivated students attending the Coornhert Gymnasium. This year’s Secretariat will be formed by Neri Weevers, Jonas Wieman, Aron Boersma and Twan Bosman. After last year’s great success, our Model UN will once again consist of three days of debate. For these three days, tread in the footsteps of Desiderius Erasmus, alumnus of our great school and one of the greatest thinkers in Dutch history. Think about the world’s problems, share your gift of rhetoric and above all, have a great time. Definitive registration will be opened by the end of June. Further information will follow.
We look forward to seeing you at COMUN 2021!
Neri Weevers, Secretary-General
