Model United Nations (MUNA)


2015 Kenora Muna Team


What is Model United Nations or (MUNA)

The Model United Nations Assembly, or MUNA, is a reproduction of the United Nations General Assembly. An agenda of topics, closely related to issues before the current UN General Assembly, is prepared for debate several months in advance of the MUNA event, which takes place each year in the month of May. Participating students are expected to diligently acquire information on agenda items about the policies of the country they will represent.

Every year around the Kenora Rotary Club sponsors up to three teams to attend the Model United Nations Assembly in Winnipeg.

Students learn parliamentary procedure, how to debate in structured debates and learns about various Countries' Political Outlook and one country in depth.

This experience will particularly benefit students seeking a vocation in law, economics, or political arenas. Benefits include training in public speaking and representation, interpersonal dynamics and behaviour. It will assist individuals in eligibility for Rotarian Scholarships and other recognitions.

The 2017 Model United nations will be held Thursday, May 4 to Saturday, May 6th. 2017.
