Giving an original twist to LEMUN’s tradition of using literary titles as our conference’s theme, we enthusiastically introduce this year’s theme to you: ‘’Water, water, everywhere – nor any drop to drink’’, a famous line from Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.
Although the Rime of the Ancient Mariner was written more than 200 years ago, this line might nowadays be more accurate than ever. While some regions have to deal with an abundance of water, others struggle with water shortages. Recognizing the severe consequences that too little or too much water can have, we decided to choose a water-related theme and establish a Special Conference on Water.
Meanwhile, the staff is working hard on making LEMUN 2015 a great success. We are looking forward to welcoming you here, in the Netherlands, a country well-known for its expertise on water-management.
