Introducing Wellington High School’s Crisis Model United Nations 2017!
Our much anticipated event is back for 2017, calling all High School students to come and show off their debating skills, and to gain insight into the perspective of a United Nations member state on a eminent global issue.
The main topic for discussion this year is around the implications of a nuclear meltdown. The scenario begins with a North Korean nuclear reactor melting down near the border of South Korea, with the nuclear radiation spilling across the border and into the neighbouring seas. What are the consequences of this? How can the international community respond to this crisis?
If you have any questions, please direct them to the Communications Officer Charlotte Carter at [email protected]
