OVERVIEW

For teams of Year 11-12 students, MUNA is a one day event that encourages them to learn about other nations and to understand and appreciate the workings of the United Nations (UN) while they develop debating skills and gain self-confidence in public speaking.
 
Teams of three students from Year 11 or Year 12 are preferred, but students from Year 10 may be accepted on request from schools, if space permits. The teams select a country; research its history, politics, economics, peoples, international alignment and policies in current world affairs.
 
Having chosen a country, they then debate selected resolutions from each country‚Äôs point of view in a simulated United Nations Assembly.  The debates reproduce genuine UN debates often with a fine flow of rhetoric, points of order, motions of dissent and bloc walkouts!
 
MUNA is actually a United Nations initiative and MUNA events are held throughout the world. The winning team from Rotary District 9640 each year competes in the MUNA Nationals in Canberra in August.
