Pacific Project 2018 Director

About the Tour
Pacific Project is an annual trip for high school students that educates participants on New Zealand’s relationship with the Pacific. It combines a week at the prestigious UN Youth Australia National Conference with an educational study tour to the Pacific Islands, with previous destinations being Vanuatu or Samoa. Over the trip the delegates learn to critically appreciate the similarities and differences between their own lives and the lives of others. Ten high school students from around New Zealand will be chosen to participate.

About the Role
The primary role of the Director is to organise and oversee all aspects of the trip, including flights, accommodation, logistics, educational content, sponsorship, delegation selection and bonding, communication with the National Conference Convenors and activities in Vanuatu. During National Conference, the Director will fulfil the role of Head of Delegation. This is mainly a facilitation role, but also involves primary responsibility for passing on information from the National Conference Organising Committee to the rest of the delegation.

Diplomacy Competition 2018 Coordinator

About the Competition
The Diplomacy Competition is an online Model UN, run throughout the year in four rounds. It aims to develop a different skillset from our typical Model UN conferences, and allows for continued engagement throughout the year. The competition is open to all students in New Zealand in teams of 3 – 4 from the same school. Best of all, it’s entirely free!

The Competition takes place over four rounds, each divided into phases. Each Team is randomly assigned a country and given a Briefing paper and Resolution on a particular topic. They will use these resources to research and produce a Position Paper, as well as to amend the Resolution. Afterwards, they will have the opportunity to read other Teams’ Position Papers, comment on them, and then revise your own Position Paper. Both external facilitators and other teams will mark each Position Paper.

The Diplomacy Competition piloted a tertiary round in 2017, which was successful. It is expected that future Organising Committees continue growing Diplomacy Competition in this way.

About the Role
Diplomacy Competition is led by a Coordinator and 3–4 Committee Members.

The Coordinator manages all aspects of the competition and implements their vision. In particular, they are responsible for the work programme and will collaborate closely with the National Executive and the organising committee to ensure the competition is successful and consistent with UN Youth’s aims and objectives. Other significant aspects include the financial management and reporting of the event in conjunction with the National Finance Officer, and pursuing sponsorship/funding for the competition.
