We have coverage from closing ceremonies plus bonus videos of the longest draft resolution produced at NHSMUN this year — Draft Resolution 1.2 in the UN Office of Drugs and Crime with 46 operative clauses in 11 pages — and a video of a resolution passing in the Plenary session below. Check it out!

Delegates worked hard to combine draft resolutions and their work was very impressive. We took a look at the Plenary session draft resolutions to find the longest one:

Draft resolutions are then read in the Plenary session and the Undersecretary-General allows one speaker for and one speaker against the resolution before delegates vote using the buttons on their General Assembly seat.

We’re glad to see the delegates’ hard work be fruitful with the passing of several resolutions. Congrats to all the delegates and congrats to the NHSMUN staff on a great conference!
