A unique simulation of the UN General Assembly on the 70th anniversary of the universal declaration of human rights
The UNAA Victoria and the City of Melbourne invite you to be part of this unique one-day simulation of the UN General Assembly to mark 70 years since the UDHR was proclaimed in Paris.
Participants will be placed in teams representing a range of UN Member States and discuss questions such as:
– Is the UDHR still applicable in today’s world?
– What does it mean to be human in the 21st Century?
As UN delegates, you will present your country’s position to the General Assembly, interact with other country delegates during the caucus sessions, and move and vote on amendments to the UDHR.
But we will help you! Information packs will be sent to all delegates several weeks prior to the conference and you will be connected to your other country team members to prepare your country’s position on human rights. Country teams will have two, three or four members.
Come along and be part of this challenging and engaging event.
