“Freedom of the press is not just important to democracy, it is democracy.”
— Walter Cronkite (pioneering US journalist)
Press Fee | 40 EUR
The press has been under attack more so than ever in the last year. “Fake News” attack and undermine the credible news outlets committed to finding and presenting the truth. For the truth is key to keeping people informed and institutions accountable to those very people. And the press is the source of that information, of that truth.
We recognize that fact at CologneMUN and that is the reason that the Press Team is going to play a vital role in the conference.
The Press Team of CologneMUN 2019 is going to play a key role in covering the events from committees of the conference. Each member of the Press Team will be rotating within the committees, where they will take notes, record the events and discussions that takes place during each session, interview delegates and hold press conferences.
This year there will be an exciting twist, as the Press Team will put information into context with the goal of representing their own news outlet! Each Press Team member will be allocated with a different international news outlet, therefore reporting on the events from their point of view, staying true to their “employer’s” agenda and to their version of the “truth”.
After completing your application, you will receive an email with additional information. To confirm your registration and receive an assignment, the delegate fee has to be paid in full for the entire delegation. Information about ways to pay the delegate fee will be included in your confirmation email.
Included in the fee are:
– Participation in CologneMUN 2019
– All conference materials
– Entry to all social events
This list is not exhaustive and will be updated soon.
We hope that you join us at CologneMUN and apply to the Press Team!
