iPrep’s Model UN is holding its very own United Nations Conference for the very first time on the afternoon of May 28th, 2019. All of the iPreparatory students are invited to participate. Students are able to represent their favorite characters from books, shows, and movies who are involved in a world crisis that would occur within a committee.
In a typical Model UN conference, students (referred to as delegates) represent one of the countries in the United Nations with pre-set topics they debate. With research done before the conference, delegates prepare a position for their country and make notes to create a solution to any problems that would be faced. Much like the United Nations, the delegates of the countries must come together to come to a consensus on a solution that most agree on. There are many committees that delegates are able to participate in, but some of the typical ones are Human Rights, Peace & Security, and the General Assembly.
However, in the iPrep UN, is modeled around pop culture. The delegates in these committees will be able to debate questions viewers have longed to ask and attempt to create solutions and answers while embodying some of our most beloved characters. No prior knowledge is needed to participate the day of the event, you should only know the book/show/movie character that you will represent. In the event you will be given time to adjust with the crisis that will be presented to you, for example ‘Voldemort is attacking the muggles’, ‘Kanye is quitting the music industry’, or ‘Thanos will try to take over the universe’ are some examples of a crisis that could be presented.
Only the top three of the committees listed will be assigned, so make sure to sign up and vote on the Google form for your that committee/fictional world you’d like to be in. Spread the word so you can get your committee voted on so it can place in the top three! Another google form will be released for those who want to represent their favorite character! Keep an eye out in the Phoenix Flyer, or keep an ear open for the announcements. It’s first come first serve when it comes to signing up for these characters.
