Some History:

MUNA was introduced to Australia in 1980 when Rotary clubs in NSW were invited to sponsor a team of two students to represent a nominated country at an assembly modelled on the format and function of the United Nations. By 1995 five Australian students were
sponsored to participate in the MUNA conducted by the Rotary Club of San Francisco as part of the Rotary/United Nations Presidential Conference to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the United Nations. The purpose of MUNA is to encourage young people to learn about
other nations and to understand and appreciate the workings of the United Nations while they develop debating skills and gain self confidence in public speaking.

The resolutions to be debated are based on some actually debated by the UN as well as some proposed by the teams. The debates reproduce genuine UN debates often with a fine flow of rhetoric, points of order, motions of dissent and bloc walkouts! MUNA is actually a United Nations initiative and there are a variety of MUNAs held throughout the world.

A search of the United Nations website has links to a number of MUNA sites and it would be of particular interest to any participating students.
