Interested applicants are now welcome to apply for the Haganum Model United Nations (HagaMUN) 2020. In 2010 a group of enthusiastic students of the Gymnasium Haganum school (Haganum) in The Hague, the Netherlands, founded the Haganum Model United Nations, HagaMUN. Further, Their passion for MUN and their interests in subjects such as history, social studies, also English resulted in the foundation of the school’s very own Model United Nations conference.
In its very first year, HagaMUN had almost 250 participants, also it hasn’t stopped growing. Model United Nations is an extracurricular activity at our school, in which students with a passion for debate can participate. In MUN, students typically roleplay delegates to the United Nations and simulate UN committees, such as the General Assembly, the Human Rights Council, also the Security Council. In 2018 HagaMUN reached its record amount of participants at 520, attracting schools from countries such as Poland, Spain, also Dubai.
Every year, the HagaMUN secretariat chooses a specific theme for the upcoming conference. Moreover, This theme will be chosen upon current events happening in the world at that specific moment. The secretariat will then continue with searching for a charity it can connect to this theme and can support with donations throughout the conference. Guests of the charity will do speeches at the HagaMUN opening and closing ceremony and in specific committees about the charity, their projects, also their achievements. Further, A large number of the issues that will be debated in the committees will be based on the conference’s theme. Choosing a theme is a good way to connect the conference to current events happening in the world.
This year’s theme is ‘celebrating international cooperation’.
