KULMUN2022: Novel approaches to Enduring Issues: Aiming to Shape the Future
March 8 - March 12
The KULMUN conference of 2022 is all about coming up with new solutions to face globally threatening, constantly recurring problems. Think about issues such as climate change, political instability, economic crises... While we hope to near the end of a world-wide pandemic, we ought to look for new opportunities to rebuild and improve our societies. It is up to the diplomats and politicians of tomorrow to cooperate and tackle these global challenges.
In 2022 we will organize our very first hybrid conference. Since we all long for in-person events, most of our committees will be organized in real life during our physical conference in Leuven. However, the ongoing pandemic taught us that online platforms offer great opportunities to overcome time and space. That is why the 2022 conference team decided to organize the UNESCO committee as a digital committee. Unlike the in-person conference, this committee will last from March 10 to March 12. Because of this online option, you no longer have to miss out on our conference due to time or travel constraints. Find out more about our digital UNESCO committee on the 'Topics and Committees'-webpage.
