Wellington Model House of Representatives 2022 Participant Registrations




1 October, 2022


Kelburn Campus, Victoria University of Wellington

Registrations Close

22 September 2022

Do you have what it takes to be a Member of Parliament? Why not find out at this year’s Model House of Representatives.  Assuming the role as a MP, this day-long event will consist of you working in select-committees to improve a bill, and a reading of the bill to debate the changes that were made. It wouldn't be a UN Youth event without a Guest Speaker and workshops. If you missed out on this year's New Zealand Model Parliament or just want to relive the excitement, then this is an event you do not want to miss. 

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! Educational content has been prepared so that representatives who may not be familiar with how government functions can engage with material from the get go.

There will be a $30 fee to attend the conference. Lunch and snacks are provided during the conference. We have a number of scholarships available to cover the conference fee.  If this fee would cause any financial hardship or inconvenience whatsoever, please consider applying for a scholarship.

This one-day event will take place on Saturday, 1st October, at Kelburn Campus, Victoria University of Wellington, and is open to all High School students.
