First, there's a couple of things you should know!
- Model-UN is meant to be fun, engaging and worthwhile! Especially for beginners, it can seem intimidating, but try to work through it and contact us if you have any questions!
- KWMUN follows the same procedure that various organs and committees within the United Nations does. Therefore, there is a substantial amount of procedural knowledge that is very helpful for novice delegates to wrap their heads around before the conference. Do your best! Go through it with your friends and ask questions if you have them.
The first link will bring you to a website that comprehensively explains Model-UN, and what to expect as a delegate. This link what Model-UN is, how to prepare for a conference, and what to expect at the conference. The details outlined in this link closely resemble a day at KWMUN. Additionally, the following link has sample position papers, background guides, a flow of debate exemplar, a resolution paper exemplar and a mock MUN debate. Especially if you are new to Model-UN, please take time to look over these resources and understand their purpose and how they are written.
If you want to learn with others...
The final link is to lessons and slideshows that are used at the Model-UN club at Cameron Heights Collegiate Institute in Kitchener, Ontario. Feel free to use these slideshows if you are part of a group or Model-UN club. Even if you aren't learning about Model-UN in a group, they're still great resources to prepare you for conferences!
