EuroMUN is hosted by, and organized under the supervision and on behalf of the United Nations Student Association (UNSA) Maastricht.
The above will hopefully help to visualize how EuroMUN, UNSA, the Secretariat and the EuroMUN committees, interact. UNSA Maastricht, being the most inter-facular and inter-cultural student association in Maastricht University, serves to bring the UN spirit to the students. One of UNSA’s big partners is the United Nations University in Maastricht. UNSA was founded in 2006 and, as of today, it has over 300 general members, including 120 actives, with an ultimate outreach to 5 000 people. It is the most important platform for students with an international profile to exchange ideas and prospective, and ultimately make a difference. Its seven committees (EuroMUN among them) provide a forum for members to take insight in international policy and to take responsibility whilst staying in touch with the social reality of Maastricht.
Word of Welcome from the UNSA President:
It is with great pleasure and honor that I would like to welcome you to the United Nations Student Association Maastricht (UNSA).
We are an academic and non-profit organization situated in the heart of Maastricht’s student life, run by the students for the students. Our members are diverse both in their country of origin as well as in their studies, which makes us one of the most international as well as inter-facular association in Maastricht.
With the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations as a guide, we are working towards bringing the UN spirit to all students of UM by organizing workshops, panel debates, lectures and career festivals. We have seven different committees working on Development aid and Fundraising, Journalism, Public Speaking and Debating training and the emission of delegations to other MUN conferences, Marketing and Communications, Events Management, the formation of a network for sponsorships and partnerships, and our very own MUN conference, EuroMUN.
In short, our main goal is not only to inform young adults about contemporary issues in the world’s politic, but even more actively foster the dispute about what is happening around the globe in an international environment, to provide students with the skills and the network that it takes to actively shape the events in the future.
Hoping that you will enjoy EuroMUN and wishing you the best,
Alice von Nesselrode,
President of UNSA 2017/18
