Kleve Model United Nations (KleMUN)
Kleve Model United Nations (KleMUN) is a student-organized simulation of the United Nations. Every year in autumn, it feels like the United Nations come to the idyllic town of Kleve, as every student plays the role of a diplomat representing a country, an organisation or a firm –just like in real life. In each of the four committees of this UN simulation, which is held in English, the students intensely debate about important and critical issues of the international community. The discussions are open and suitable for everyone, from the first-time fresher to the already far advanced MUN expert. Whatever your level is, be ready to have a thrilling time in and outside the conference rooms, as there will be great social events going on as well. An evening in a bar to get to know your fellow delegates or even the delegates' ball to feel the glamour. KleMUN is a great chance to meet new and passionate people from all over the globe. But be aware, you might get the MUN-fever! This year's conference takes place from 21st to 24th November 2019 under the topic: "Make it Matter".
This years committees are the following:
