Welcome Day: So It Begins!

The sunlit halls of Leiden University College the Hague welcomed dozens of delegates from around Europe to the kickoff of MUNOTH 2018.

The day began with warm smiles and welcome-packages of eco-friendly pens, notebooks, and vouchers as delegates socialized in the Anna van Buerenplein building before heading off to our opening ceremony. Delegates had the pleasure of hearing speeches from Secretary General Roos Kolkman as well as keynote speakers Hugo van Meijenfeldt (Ministerie van Buitenlandse Zaken, VU Amsterdam) and Jolanda van der Vliet (Leiden University) on MDGs and environmental refugees, respectively.

Afterwards, delegates were able to socialize at LUC’s student bar, Coasters, as well as over dinner in order to better get to know their committee members and chairs.
