Model United Nations Society

Summary

We debate, discuss and learn more about various issues around the world in the spirit of the United Nations.


Description

We are one of the older clubs at the University of Western Ontario and our membership is open to students of all affiliated colleges and main campus. Our members are from all across Western, from all manner of programs, and some come to us from across oceans. We're an active club that keeps up with current events in the world, so we can debate and argue about them, usually from the perspective of other nations' foreign policies. Why? Because it is a lot of fun. During the school year we have weekly meetings where we debate, talk about issues, and work on our diplomatic skills. We also like to travel. We have a major event we go to at the end of each January in Montreal. We send delegates to more out of province and out of countryconferences each year.  If traveling is not your thing, we hold in house events each year which require time, effort and a bunch of volunteers to pull off. Our new cornerstone event on campus is our High School Conference, which continues to grow and expand since it started last year, and draws schools from across South Western Ontario. We also run our own University Level conference which has been growing every year, and draws attendance from Universities across Ontario. If our club sounds like something you'd enjoy, you are more than welcome to join us. Either contact us during the school year, or come out to our booth during Club's Week. We are always looking for new people with fresh ideas and a fresh perspective. Previous Model UN experience or debating skills are not required, we will do our best to teach or help you if you need.
