Model United Nations Assembly (MUNA) is a Rotary District project designed to create an awareness of the role of the United Nations in mediating international issues.
 
The purpose of MUNA is to encourage young people to learn about other nations and to understand and appreciate the workings of the United Nations while they develop debating skills and gain self confidence in public speaking.
 
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 there are a variety of MUNA events held throughout the world.
 
THE DETAILS
 
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.  
MUNA occurs in March each year, and the winning team from our District will be taken to the Nationals in Canberra in August .
