Welcome to Avon Model UN!
Here's all the info you need for the 2017-2018 season!
Avon Model UN (AMUN) is the simulation of the real-life United Nations! We strive to learn about current world issues, how they affect us, and what we can do to solve them. We also place emphasis on world politics, international relationships between nations, and how our skills of debate and negotiation can work to make the world a better place.
By representing a country at conference (our version of a competition), members will learn how to work with other delegates, solve crises and world issues, and pass major laws that improve the lives of many.
In the past, we have tackled issues such as nuclear weapons, refugee crises, countering the spread of Ebola, and advancing our use of renewable energy sources. At conferences, we’ve been hit with curveballs such as a World War 3 scenario between Russia and the US, and a cyber terrorist attacking the United Nations itself. These kinds of problems really force members to think on their feet and solve problems quickly, which is especially exciting and enjoyable to be a part of.
Our next Meeting is: Friday, August 25th @ 3 pm in the ALC Media Center
