ROTARY CLUB OF EUGENE
MODEL UNITED NATIONS
Rotary Club of Eugene Model United Nations
The Rotary Club of Eugene is sponsoring an inaugural Model United Nations (MUN) program for 10th – 12th grade high school students in Lane County.
Rotary International, an organization dedicated to the advancement of peace and goodwill globally, helped found the United Nations with many of the same goals in mind. To educate youth, the Rotary Club of Eugene is working with Rotary Clubs statewide and consulting with out-of-state programs, including San Diego’s Rotary Model United Nations and the World International Model United Nations (WIMUN), to host an optimal simulation of the United Nations. Students will develop portable skills, such as leadership, public speaking, teamwork, negotiation, research, and foster a deeper understanding of world problems and world solutions.
Form A Team
Teams consist of two students and one adult adviser. Each team will represent a country, write a position paper/speech on a resolution (selected in advance by Eugene Rotary), and deliver their position at the MUN conference.
The adviser works with their team of students for over two months to guide them with their research and speech preparations. Students are selected, sponsored, and funded by corporate sponsors, other Rotary clubs, and generous individual donations. The adviser attends the conference and may be a Rotarian, a teacher, or other interested member of the community. Once the teams are recruited, the resolution is distributed to the participants. A resolution closely relate to current international issues before the real United Nations General Assembly.
