For the past few months, we have closely monitored the development of the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the world, especially in the city of Jakarta. Due to the continued restrictions of close-range social contact and public gathering, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to make difficult decisions. Therefore, it is with heavy heart that we would like to announce the Cancellation of Jakarta Model United Nations that would originally be held on August 6-9, 2020. Safety and health remain our best priority for everyone involved in this event.
Together, the whole organizing committee has planned a very special conference this year. We are excited with the possibilities of having great speakers in our conference, excellent chairs managing the councils, and an overall unforgettable experience for you, the delegates. Throughout the early months of 2020 we keep on hoping that things would get better. But some things need more time, and the best we can do is to adapt.
We know that this unfortunate event may lead to your disappointment and inconvenience. We acknowledge your excitement and dedication in preparation for the event. However, our current priority is to ensure the well-being of everyone involved in this event, we dare not expose anyone to the risk of COVID-19. We believe that nothing is worth more than your health and safety.
We will be back soon.
See you in 2021.
