NZMP is the youngest national event in UN Youth’s calendar, first established in 2018. This makes it an epic opportunity for a Committee that wishes to be creative and make their mark on a newer format. Additionally, it means that there is a lot of support available to ensure the event runs smoothly and sustainably. Hosted annually in Christchurch, NZMP is UN Youth’s only South Island-based national event, giving it particular importance for engaging with youth of Te Waipounamu.
NZMP gives students the chance to learn about Aotearoa’s Parliamentary system by giving them the opportunity to take on the role of a Member of Parliament. The Committee will be responsible for crafting a strong sense of legitimacy for the event, developing an educational programme that discusses critical national issues whilst liaising with Parliamentary guest speakers. NZMP is currently seeking expressions of interest for the Committee and Coordinator Roles! EOIs Close: 10th Feb 2021 at 11:59 PM The application pack can be found here !
