Are you a Beginner?

The Secretary General is running workshops from 12:00-16:30 as part of the KrakMUN 2017 Pre-Programme on 27 April. New delegates are encouraged to attend.

The programme will consist of: Rules & Procedures Introduction and Training (12:00-13:00), a Flow of Debate Workshop (13:00-14:00), Resolution Writing Workshop (14:30-15:30), and an Introduction to the United Nations System (15:30-16:30). These workshops are free to all delegates. If you already have some MUN background, you are still welcome to pick and choose any of these workshops

If you ever have any question about procedures, use the “Point of Parliamentary Enquiry” to ask a question to your chairs. Their job is to help everyone understand and follow the Rules & Procedures.

Language and Difficulty

Delegates from all backgrounds are welcome to apply for any committee; however, some delegates may find content in some committees harder than in others. Choose the field in which you are most interested in. Rules & Procedures. All committees are simulated in English. G20, ICJ, and UNSC contain slightly more advanced English in the Study Guide compared to other committees.

Przydało by się trochę pomocy z angielskiego? Konferencja w Sprawie Zmian Klimatu (UNFCCC) i Liga Narodów (LoN) mają Polskich chairów (marszałków) którzy mogą pomóc w razie wszelkich wątpliwości językowych. Członkowie sekretariatu, którzy będą krążyć pomiędzy komitetami w czasie konferencji, też mogą pomóc. Delegaci na niższych poziomach angielskiego (B2/C1) dostaną pierwszeństwo na pozycje w tych komitetach.
