The whole world in their hands

ABOUT 70 secondary students from schools from around Australia will gather at Old Parliament House next month to debate contemporary global issues in the areas of peace and security, human rights, the environment and development.

They will be here for the Model United Nations Assembly (MUNA) over the weekend of August 18-20, which will involve students in a hands-on experience of a UN General Assembly style debate with the aim of increasing international understanding and goodwill.

Each team will represent a country and students will dress in the national costume of the country they represent.

On the Saturday evening, students will join diplomats from some of the countries they represent at the MUNA dinner, jointly hosted by the Rotary Club of Canberra Sunrise and the ANU.

MUNA 2017 is the 21st consecutive year in which the Rotary Club of Canberra Sunrise has organised the event. The club says that over that time about 1600 secondary school students have participated.
