Fall Model UN Training Conference (November 15, 2018)

>> Conference only open to GCDC Community members



Registration Opens:  Thursday, September 20

Registration Closes:  Tuesday, November 6

Payment Deadline:   Thursday, November 8

The Fall Model UN Training Conference hosted by the Pan American Health Organization provides an opportunity for newcomers to Model United Nations to participate in a conference designed to teach rather than compete. Those who have participated in Model UN before are welcome, as well! 

This year, the Fall Model UN Training Conference will focus on the Global Opioid Crisis in a World Health Organization (WHO) committee. Many Americans may be familiar with the epidemic happening in our own country, but the easy availability of opioids have caused the increase in misuse and deaths that lead to worldwide crisis. In addition, many countries are extremely restrictive with life-saving pain medication, and suffer from too little access. Students will explore how to bridge this divide, and learn from countries’ experiences on both ends of the spectrum.

The conference focuses on building the basic Model UN skills of researching your country position, learning public speaking, and writing resolutions with your fellow delegates. Highlights include:

  • One-day conference hosted at the Pan American Health Organization, the regional office for the Americas of the World Health Organization (WHO), the UN's specialized health agency

  • Conference prep materials tailored for students new to Model UN in Unit 2 of the GCDC Community
  • Optional position papers! 
  • Opportunity to practice Model UN and work with students from all over the DC, Maryland, and Virginia region in a teaching environment
