MAASTRICHT. Hundreds of students from all over the world will get a taste of what it is like to be a country’s delegate at an international conference during EuroMUN, 26-30 April in the MECC. They will form thirteen committees which will think about and come up with solutions for global issues during this simulation event.
The NATO-committee, for instance, will discuss risk containment policy in case of conflict in Eastern Ukraine, whereas the European Parliament-committee will ponder over European border and coast guard regulation. “You’ll get really good practise of the skills you learn at university”, says Aysha Putri, PR-officer and School of Business and Economics student. “You’ll train lobbying, public speaking and presentation skills.”
It’s not just work, there will also be a pub crawl, a theme party and a gala. There’s also a trip to Brussels planned before the conference starts. And since this is the 10th edition of EuroMUN, there are more speakers than normally and alumni are invited as well.
