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 is held each year, and the winning team from our District will be taken to the MUNA Nationals in Canberra in August.
 
 
MUNA 2020 was cancelled due to COVID-19. We apologise to the schools and students who were disappointed by the late notification, but the pandemic simply disrupted all Rotary organised Youth activities.
We are very happy to announce that MUNA 2021 has been arranged at the Tweed Heads Civic Centre, a great venue which is central to all areas.
The date of MUNA 2021 is Saturday 1st May 2021, which we trust will be suitable for students attending schools in both New South Wales and Queensland.
