Government House Model UN Conference 2017
Please complete this form to register your school's interest in participating in the Government House Model United Nations Conference (MUNC) on Tuesday 6 June, 2017. The Conference will be held at Government House (Government House Drive, Melbourne VIC 3004) and will discuss the topic of Achieving Gender Equality: Empowering Women and Girls. Victorian secondary school teachers from nearby Government schools are invited to participate.
A MUNC is a creative simulation of the United Nations General Assembly in which delegates represent member states of the UN. In teams of 3 or 4, delegates will attempt to reach an agreement on a new UN Resolution addressing the topic of Achieving Gender Equality.
This MUNC is designed to provide teachers with a professional development opportunity to learn new skills and pedagogies in the fields of English, Humanities and VCE Global Politics.
The Conference is being managed by the United Nations Association of Australia (Victorian Division) in partnership with the Honourable Linda Dessau AC, Governor of Victoria and Government House. It will run over the full school day. There is no fee for participating schools. All materials and instructions for teachers to prepare for the Conference will be provided by UNAA Victoria.
The number of teachers able to attend from your school will depend on registrations. Places are limited so please express your school's interest in attending as soon as possible by completing the form below. Alternatively you may contact Education Program Coordinator Alexandra Edge at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 03 9607 1363.
While we are targeting teachers, we do understand that not all schools may be able to send a full team of 4 teachers so we welcome schools to register and allow senior students to make up a team of 4 as long as there is at least 1 teacher from the respective school represented in the team.
Teams are made up of a maximum of 4 people. We can only guarantee the involvement of one team of 4 per school, so please only register for the one team at this stage. If it is possible to include more people we will contact you following registrations.
More information about Model UN Conferences is available on the UNAA Victoria website: www.unaavictoria.org.au/model-un-conferences
We look forward to having you involved.
