ONLINE - New Zealand Model Parliament 2022 Participant Registrations




2 - 4 September, 2022

Registrations Close

7 August 2022

First run in 2018, New Zealand Model Parliament is UN Youth New Zealand’s youngest national conference and we are thrilled to announce its return this year! For those unable to commit to travelling to Christchurch for the in-person event, we are excited to be able to deliver New Zealand Model Parliament Online following its success in 2021!

Over the course of two days, secondary school students will have the opportunity to experience hands-on the process of a bill becoming legislation through the House of Representatives. You will assume the role of a Member of Parliament, representing and balancing both community and party interests in thought-provoking discussions of New Zealand issues. During committees, representatives will develop their speaking and negotiation skills, as well as their understanding of our political process.

Those interested do not need to have previous experience in debating, public speaking or a UN Youth event in order to apply, just an interest in exploring contemporary Aotearoa issues with fellow rangatahi!

There is a $15 registration fee for our online conference, which will go towards us being able to deliver NZMP merchandise to online participants. We are able to provide a number of scholarships to those who would otherwise be unable to attend.

For further information regarding the in-person and online event, please see our full information pack here.

Applications will close at 11:59pm, Tuesday 2nd August. Please feel free to get in touch with us via [email protected] with any questions!
