GIMUN’s MUN Delegation session is drawing to an end. Seems like our delegates-to-be are ready to go out into the “real world”!
A typical day at the UN: representing countries, discussing different topics, debating and making speeches and, most importantly, reaching a resolution to address the issue at hand. That is how the last session of the MUN Delegation went on Wednesday the 11th of November.
After six weeks of training, it came down to the last session for us delegates to show what we had learned about MUN conference procedures, from setting the agenda to writing the resolution. And that is exactly what we did during our last two-hour meeting as a delegation. The head delegates made sure the simulation went as smoothly as possible and the country representatives gave it their all. After all, it was our last chance to practice before any of us gets to participate in an MUN conference. Indeed, some of us attending OXIMUN very soon…
By the end of the session, we were ready to face the world of MUN. Or so we thought.However, you never know what might happen when you’re making a speech in front of more than 100 people or when you’re negotiating with the master of negotiations. I guess we’ll have to see what happens during our next MUN adventures!
