UN Youth’s Auckland Regional Council is looking for volunteers for our second high schools’ event in 2021.
The event has traditionally run over one day with workshops and committee sessions, guest speakers. It will allow high school students to utilise diplomatic skills of negotiation and debate in an immersive environment. We hope that after the conference, participants will be inspired to actively engage with the world around them and lead positive change.
Our past events have attracted between 100-200 high school delegates and university volunteers, including those from the wider Auckland region. Examples include (but are not limited to); Model Arab Nations, Model European Union, Model World Health Organisation, Raise Your Voice, Crisis Summit and Model Security Council. They tend to be a global forum event or hybrid civics event comprising interactive workshops and problem-solving. The committee will be able to explore creative options and bring to life a truly innovative experience that achieves UN Youth’s vision of enhancing global and active citizenship for rangatahi.
The event is expected to be held sometime during Semester 2. The vision and format for this event are undecided and in consultation and approval by the Auckland Regional Council, will be up to the committee to set.
If you are interested, please read the application pack for more information and make sure to apply by 11:59 PM Friday 9th April!
