Press Fee | 35€

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 will be responsible for reporting on the events during the conference. Each member of the press team will be assigned a committee to report on; where they will take notes, record the events and discussions that takes place during each session, interview delegates and sometimes even leak information. The Press Team will put information into context and present it as they see fit with the goal to keep delegates and the UN accountable and transparent. With the goal of finding the truth.

CologneMUN 2018 will feature five exciting committees, an experienced and international chairing team, high caliber guest speakers and three social events that provide a taste of Cologne’s multifaceted culture and nightlife. Peruse our website for more information about the conference.

After completing your application, you will receive an email with additional information. To confirm your registration and receive a country 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 2018
– All conference materials
– Entry to all social events
This list is not exhaustive and will be updated soon.

Applicants that are under the age of 18 by the time of the conference require a special permission by the Secretariat to attend CologneMUN 2018 and will not be allowed to participate in the social events. For more information please message chiefofstaff@colognemun.org.

We hope that you join us at CologneMUN and apply to the Press Team!
