WIPO staff pose for Best Delegate

The 2011 Secondary Schools United Nations Symposium (SSUNS) has a theme of “We Ignite” and aimed to ignite the delegates’ passion for Model UN during Opening Ceremonies. It seemed that the 800+ delegates at Canada’s premier secondary school conference took that to heart as both experienced and new delegates from many schools participated actively throughout the weekend. Even the faculty advisors got into it with their own crisis simulation!

Delegates discussing a working paper in the Security Council

The University of Connecticut’s 13th annual UCMUN conference commenced this year on November 10. The UCMUN conference is a learning conference that prides itself on providing both novice and experienced delegates a like, with a productive conference they will never forget. Being that it is a learning conference UCMUN stresses the importance of parliamentary procedure, delegate’s accuracy and debate. UCMUN provides delegates with a learning center, a place they can go, even during committee, to research their country or topic. They can also speak with topic experts who have extensively researched the issue. UCMUN topic experts also give a presentation during debate to help inform delegates and give them new ideas for debates.
