APRIL 12-14, 2019 STATE TXMUN ASSEMBLY
OUR HEALTH IS IN OUR HANDS
This year, we recognize the economic and personal affects of health as it relates to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Whether it's access to vaccinations, water scarcity or the environment, essentially everything affects our health. Our cause this year is the UN World Food Programme. With your help, you can make a difference helping to feed those affected by the Cyclone in Africa where the YMCAs of Malawi and Zimbabwe are helping families recover. Learn more about the YMCA Africa Alliance and help feed families with your donation to the World Food Programme.
This three day, two night immersive conference hosted by the YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas is not only a UN simulation, it's about real life community. It's not just about learning about a nation, it's about learning about what you are capable of. It's not just about a resume builder, it's a character builder.
This annual conference is the culminating event for Model UN clubs across Texas. Led by the officer body of the Secretariat, this conference simulates the United Nations with various organs and 2 topics per committee. Delegates may apply to be Committee Chairs and future Secretariat officers, serving at conference and in the following year. All delegates must prepare a Country Profile and Topic Paper for this conference. Awards are given for honorable, best and outstanding delegates, as well as delegates exhibiting excellent character based on our rubric.
This conference model invites delegates from Model UN Clubs in their region to engage in stimulating debate, competition, and collaboration in an attempt to resolve real-world issues that face the nations of the UN today. Delegates also get the opportunity to make new friends in social events at the host hotel during the nights of conference. In an effort to promote collaboration and execution of core YMCA values, Texas Model UN allows students to understand the deeper meaning of diplomacy and discover their passions.
