"Uniting and empowering youth for international peace, development, and a sustainable future"

Welcome to the MaasMUN 2019!

It is our pleasure to invite you to the first ever MUN conference at UWC Maastricht. MaasMUN 2019 will be held from Friday 14th June until Sunday 16th of June 2019. The conference will be aimed at delegates between the ages of 12 and 18.

For one weekend, students from all over the globe have the opportunity to become diplomats. As a Model United Nations conference, it is our vision that delegates who attend leave with a fresh perspective on the world. Our conference mission is: ‘Uniting and empowering youth for international peace, development, and a sustainable future’. As global citizens, it is our duty to educate ourselves on world issues. Through our mission statement, we aim to communicate how participants at MaasMUN will be able to achieve this - discussing and debating the world’s most prevalent problems; preparing them for their role in catalyzing change to help shape the future.
