Due to developments of the Covid-19 pandemic, GrunnMUN 2021 was hosted online.

The Theme of GrunnMUN 2021: Cooperation in Times of Crisis

We are living in unprecedented times. Economies are shut down, communities are shut off, and Covid-19 infection rates march forward at an unrelenting pace. As the world eagerly awaits an end to the pandemic, it is vital that we do not neglect the many other crises we face.

UN agencies have been leading the fight against environmental, humanitarian and health crises around the globe, enabling cooperation beyond borders. The WHO coordinates humanity’s efforts to eradicate diseases of all kinds, the UN Security Council conducts peacekeeping at a global scale, and the UNFCCC provides a crucial framework for combatting the climate crisis.

But crisis implies urgency and intergovernmental organisations face great challenges in rendering swift and unanimous decision. So, how do we build effective capacities for crisis management at the international level? How do we remain calm in the face of a crisis, without downplaying its severity? And how do we make sure that international responses are not co-opted by national interests?

We are going through the greatest global crisis since the Second World War and, like then, the only thing that will redeem humankind is cooperation. Join us at GrunnMUN 2021, where we explore the role of international organisations in facilitating this cooperation.
