Model United Nations Assembly (MUNA)
The purpose of Rotary’s MUNA is to encourage young people to learn about other countries and to develop an understanding of the workings of the United Nations. This is achieved by simulating the workings of the United Nations General Assembly right down to the rules and processes.
Teams of two students (a delegation) from year 10 and (preferably) year 11 represent a nominated UN Member State, and research topics such as Education, Environment, Health, Human Rights, Nuclear Proliferation, Poverty, and Terrorism, the role of Women in promoting Peace and Security, and World Peace. Through this program, student delegates develop debating skills, gain self-confidence in public speaking and leadership skills.
The objective of Rotary MUNA is to encourage young people to learn respect and tolerance for people of all cultures, races, religions and nationalities. MUNA is all about building bridges of goodwill for world peace and understanding in the minds of our youth.
A Rotary District 9820 MUNA 2-day camp is held every May, with the Rotary Club of Frankston fully funding nominated delegates.
