is a growing community of students volunteering to facilitate meaningful learning opportunities for individuals passionate about global health. We are a student group ratified under the Undergraduate Student’s Union at the Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN). The goal of our conference is to acquaint students with the role of the WHO while providing them an opportunity to play a proactive role in global health policy. Participants assume the role of a country’s ambassador to the WHO and work with their peers to develop resolution papers that address the different global health theme chosen every year. MUN WHO’s founder recognized the importance of developing inter-professional relationships in order to develop a deeper understanding of health and more sustainable solutions to its problems. We are very proud to welcome students from all educational backgrounds to our conference
aims to promote and educate the ideas of the United Nations by organizing Model United Nations events. In Model UN, students participate as delegates, who each represent a country or organization in a simulation of a UN committee. Through debate, collaboration, and diplomacy, delegates eventually produce a document enumerating solutions to issues pertaining to a specific topic or crisis. Founded in 1989, the UN Society hosts multiple in-house Model UN sessions each year. The society also organizes a team (delegation) to attend McMUN, an annual international Model UN conference in Montreal. Their best-known event, however, is MUN Squared, a high school Model UN conference hosted every February, with a keynote speaker, several committees and over 200 delegates.
The Commonwealth makes its decisions at Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings (CHOGM’s). CHOGM on the Rock hosts a model CHOGM’s once a year where delegates get to represent one of 53 Commonwealth countries to resolve issues that impact every country in the room. Participants will have the opportunity to make backroom deals, discuss at the table with all other nations, connect with representatives, learn, experience, and grow. The Commonwealth is a mechanism for change in the world, and youth are not just its future, but it's present. Change the world.
The Memorial Debate Society is a society dedicated to promoting debate in the university community. They believe that debate is uniquely powerful in improving critical thinking, public speaking, and leadership skills. They hold regular meetings twice a week throughout the fall and winter semesters, and once a week during the summer. They are also very engaged in the Eastern Division of CUSID (Canadian University Society for Intercollegiate Debate), regularly sending members to tournaments across Atlantic Canada
