The European International Model United Nations Conference in Netherlands
The European International Model United Nations (TEIMUN) is a conference held from the 11th until the 17th of July for students from all over the globe. TEIMUN is one of the oldest MUN’s in Europe for university students. TEIMUN strikes a good balance between a professional atmosphere and social interaction between the delegates. As a consequence, TEIMUN is a very good starting point for first time MUN’ers, as well as being a very challenging conference for MUN veterans. Furthermore, the TEIMUN parties and social events are a renowned aspect of the conference and are just as important as the daily sessions in the different councils.
The theme of TEIMUN 2016 is “Pushing Boundaries: Pursuing a new state of mind”
In the past year we have been confronted with ever growing problems that can only be solved through an international and cooperative effort. Herman Van Rompuy stated, ”the age of the nation state is over and the idea that countries can stand alone is an ‘illusion’ and a ‘lie’”. The problems we face today, be it the current refugee crisis, global warming or extremist terrorism do not respect or recognize borders.
Throughout history we have seen groups of people band together in order to survive, thrive; from the first early hunter-gatherer societies, to the great ancient civilizations and our modern nation state. This has helped the human race survive and prosper, but in order to solve these new, global, problems it is important for us to avoid the mistakes of the past, to grow beyond our national centric approaches and to cooperate in a truly international and collaborative effort.
At TEIMUN 2016 we will be discussing these and many other problems that we can only tackle as a global and united force. This is why we want to emphasize the need for cooperation and a new approach towards our fellow humans.
