MUNers Participate in Online International Debates

Members of one of CRS’s most popular middle school clubs, Model United Nations (MUN), have moved their activity online as they participate in an international conference via Zoom. Nine CRS students are participating in the conference, sponsored by the MUN Institute, throughout March and April. Debates will run weekly, with six hours of online debate time each week. CRS students will join participants from all over the country to address timely topics including the coronavirus pandemic, nuclear disarmament, and equal representation for women. They will engage in live debates and negotiation sessions, as well as prepare and deliver speeches. After each week, students report back to their teachers and Model UN advisors on the experience.
