ONLINE KARMUN - 25-27th March 2021
It is our honor to hereby invite you to participate in the very first online edition of Karinthy Model United Nations which will take place between 25th and 27th of March, 2021.
For months we have hoped that we would be able to hold an offline event. However, after analyzing the current situation it became obvious to us that the chances for a safe in-person international conference in March are extremely low. Nevertheless, we cannot imagine another year without KarMUN. Hence the decision to move it into the online space. KarMUN is our passion and we are committed to organizing the best possible conference in this different situation too.
As our current reality is utterly pervaded by isolation and division, we feel more responsible than ever to spark meaningful dialogues and strengthen the feelings of unity and interdependence. We consider this to be the core of what we are and what our mission is, therefore we chose Connected as the theme for this year’s conference.
KarMUN holds a very special place in our hearts, so we will do everything we can to make this online conference an unforgettable one. This conference will not be yet another online MUN, it will be an Online KarMUN. If you have already been to KarMUN, you must know what we mean, if you have not, now is your chance to find out.
The thing we love most about MUNs in general is the social aspect - meeting new people from different parts of the world and sharing ideas. In our experience this part is often lost at online conferences. However, we are making it one of our top priorities. Apart from creating a conference with high professional value we would like to make sure that delegates do not have an isolated experience, but feel as connected to other participants as possible. In order to achieve this goal we are planning to organize pre-event warm up sessions where delegates in the same committees can get to know each other and can talk about the issues in a friendly, informal setting. We also plan to bring the participants closer to the organizers with regular media reports throughout the conference. Furthermore every committee will welcome a guest speaker, an accomplished expert, academic or university professor to talk about one of the committee’s issues in order to help the delegates understand it better and come up with better ideas. These are just a few examples, but we have more planned to make this conference a highlight of your year.
We are full of enthusiasm and ready to work hard to bring you KarMUN 2021 in its best possible form. We see a lot of potential in this online format that could make this event stand out from the crowd of other online MUNs around the world. However, enthusiasm is not the only thing we can build on, we have experience organizing both online and offline conferences. This year’s MinKarMUN (an MUN for the students of our school) was held online and turned out to be a greater success than we expected. So we plan to combine our knowledge of in-person and online events to create an online conference we will never forget.
We hope to see you at KarMUN.
