Ever wonder what it would be like to be a council member in the world of Katniss Everdeen? Want to practice advocating for climate justice in a safe and welcoming environment? Do you simply want to brush up on your debate and networking skills?
The Skyline College’s Model United Nations Team is hosting an online Model United Nations Conference on Friday, May 7, from 3p.m. – 9p.m., no entrance fee required. Even if you’ve never heard of Model United Nations, we’ll have a tutorial session from 3p.m. – 4p.m., so please don’t miss out on this unique occasion!
The art of communication and persuasion thrives in Model United Nations, where participants mimic governmental/international organizations and engage in formal debate to stand up for their assigned role’s best interests. Participants at conferences will read a background guide and take part in committees that cover different topics; in our case, two! A General Assembly committee is typically larger than a Crisis committee, and a Crisis committee is typically a more creative and fast-paced environment than a General Assembly committee.
Our Crisis committee is the 75th Hunger Games Council, and our General Assembly committee is International Court of Justice: Climate Justice.
