XX Annual HELIMUN Conference

Only a few months before the conference Covid-19 hit Finland and the conference was on the verge of being cancelled. Luckily the conference was able to be held, but only for the students of Kulosaari Lower Secondary School, the students of the school that organizes the conference. The conference was unable to be held in person but with major modifications it was able to be held online. With only a few months’ notice the four General Assembly committees were combined to one and students were moved from one committee to another since all of the other schools were not able to participate. Since there were many student officers supposed to participate from other schools, many of the student officers ended up being in completely different committees than they were supposed to be in. Despite the sudden changes and considering the circumstances the conference was a success and the students participating were happy with the outcome.
