Wellington Model Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation 2017 is here!

This is an exciting new event format – a first for UN Youth – simulating the activities of this important forum for Pacific Rim nations!

The theme of this year’s event is UN+Tapped, looking at the potential that this region of the world has to offer, including committees on free trade agreements, health, sustainable development and women’s economic empowerment.

Following on from the success of Model Conference of the Parties in 2016, this event will be open to all high school AND tertiary members!

The event will be held on Sunday, 24th September at Victoria University of Wellington’s Kelburn Campus, and is going to be unmissable! Registrations are open from the 25th of August till the 10th of September, but spaces are limited so get in quick!

Meet the Committee

Hannah Ward – Co-Coordinator

Hannah is a second year student at Victoria University studying a BA majoring in International Relations, Development Studies and Public Policy. When she’s not studying or working, Hannah enjoys playing social netball and binge watching Netflix. She is looking forward to bringing a new event style to the Wellington region!





Mitchell Fraser – Co-Coordinator

Mitchell is a third year law and commerce student at Victoria, majoring in economics, as well as the Vice-President Tertiary for the Wellington Region. When not on the netball court with Hannah, Mitchell can most probably be found watching reality TV, brunching and/or drinking gingerbread mochas. Mitchell is very excited to be involved in bringing a new type of event to the region, and seeing how the MAPEC format plays out.




Aimee Cox – Support Officer

Aimee is a full time student at Victoria University of Wellington studying law and arts, majoring in politics and international relations. Apart from the pleasure that comes from putting herself through the academic pain of law, she enjoys hockey, lacrosse, and playing jazz. This is Aimee’s first UN Youth committee, and she is very excited to help organise MAPEC this year due to her previous experience with the organisation at high school.
