Word of Welcome

Distinguished Delegates,
Honorable Chairs,

I am very honored to have the possibility to host the third edition of CologneMUN and would therefore like to express a special gratitude to the previous team and all participants of CologneMUN 2019, who made this possible. We created wonderful memories, gathered a lot of experience and could not be happier about your amazing feedback.
For our next conference, which will take place from 22 until 25 of October 2020, we have put together a dedicated team and work hard in order to give you another unforgettable experience in our wonderful city of Cologne. We therefore cordially invite you all to be part of our journey – so be prepared for lively debates and amazing socials!

Many new and unknown things are happening in the world right now. Considering current international trends and discussions we decided to focus on a very important topic. Thus, the CologneMUN 2020 will be host under the slogan “Security Challenges for the world of tomorrow”. Ongoing and emerging conflicts such as the COVID-19 pandemic affect us as a global community and lead to new Security Challenges. We are aware of the fear and insecurity that many may feel because of the current situation. Nevertheless, we invite you to meet with us in Cologne and to look forward to a week that will bring the world a little bit more together.

We believe that Model UN is the right place to come up with new and creative ideas and discuss them among open-minded and motivated students from all over the world. Only with an open mind and the will to change something, we can face the challenges and create new opportunities. We are very much looking forward to an academically demanding and enthralling conference and hope to see you in October!

Kind regards,
Jana Gietman
Secretary-General
