UN model security council event
All island secondary schools have been invited to take part in the UN Model Security Council event to be held Legislative Buildings, Douglas on 4 February 2022 (rescheduled from 3 December 2021).
This year the scenario for debate will be an imagined but realistic scenario featuring a developing crisis which is brought before the UN Security Council. The topic will be the South China Sea where several nations dispute swathes of ocean and tiny atolls.
Two students will represent an allocated Nation State and each country will set out its position on a topic. During the day via rounds of haggling, diplomacy and plenary sessions the students will attempt to construct a Resolution to be voted on – without incurring a veto from any of the five permanent members. A prize is awarded for the best team and individual.
The Annual General Meeting of the United Nations Association, Isle of Man will be held on the 16th of November 2021 at the Meadows Pavilion, followed by a few words by our Chairman, Chris Thomas MHK, about the History of the IOM UN Association and its Future, with dinner served after at 8.30pm.
Invitations to the dinner cost £20 per person and includes a dinner, dessert and coffee.
AGM to be held at 7.30pm.
