What does the Organizing team do?
The Organizing team is in charge of both practical and creative planning of the Conference.

But we will also do something fun with the team, to get to know each other better and balance work and leisure!
As part of the team you are the heart and soul of the event. Learn project management from scratch, develop essential communication skills and gain deeper insight into how MUN functions. These are all skills that will be useful for you later in life. Besides that, you will get to know amazing people and find new friends and connections!
