Warm greetings from RBK International Academy!
Welcome to the 8th edition of our annual inter-school event, the RBKIA Model United Nations Conference – RMUN 2020! This is our first ever online MUN. This event will be held on the 24th and 25th of October, 2020. This is a simulation of United Nations meetings where students assume the role of representatives of different countries and engage in discussions and dialogue, seeking solutions to issues of global concern.
It is an opportunity for students to interact and develop strong communication and debating skills as well as to get a chance to practice diplomacy and lobbying. It is expected that students will conduct research on assigned topics and countries in order to gain more insight and a better perspective of events, and issues affecting the world.
This conference is open to delegates of all abilities: both starting and experienced participants. In an attempt to foster good communication skills, we are open to entries from Grades 6-12. To facilitate better participation from the first-timers, we have introduced dedicated committees and agenda that inexperienced candidates can explore with greater confidence.
Our team here at RBKIA is beyond excited to introduce you to the wonderful committees that we have decided to hold this year. Each committee has been given an intriguing and engaging agenda to go along with it, and we’re sure that it will keep you on your toes and prepare you for 2 days of intense debating and fraternizing!
