The Plymouth Model UN Assembly 2010 enacted a UN Security Council debate on Israel-Palestine conflict. This was the first time that MUNSW staged a UN Security Council debate. The event took place at the Civic Centre in Plymouth during December and involved sixth formers from schools and colleges around Plymouth.

The Assemblies are targeted at gifted and able KS3 and KS4 students and sixth formers.

The learning objectives of MUN Assemblies are to enable participants to:
• Gain insight into the workings of the United Nations and the dynamics of international relations by providing opportunities to assume the roles of UN representatives
• Understand relations between countries and particularly power relations between rich and poor countries
• Carry out in-depth research which will include geography, history, science and economics related to climate change and issues of global poverty and the MDGs
• Debate the issues that confront world leaders and draft resolutions in response to these global issues
• Develop and experience important social skills such as teamwork and group cooperation, conflict resolution, negotiation, consensus-building, critical thinking, public speaking and listening.

A Model United Nations (UN) Assembly is a simulation or role play of the United Nations. Participants take on the role of delegates from countries who are members of the United Nations and debate serious global issues such as climate change, child soldiers or the Israel-Palestinian conflict. 

Model UN Assemblies enable participants to experience, practice and experiment with technical writing, debating, public speaking, listening, strategic thinking, conflict resolution, negotiation and decision making.

Successful Model United Nations Assemblies have taken place in the South West, with annual Assemblies now established in Torbay, Plymouth and Exeter. The programme is currently expanding to other parts of the South West including Cornwall. MUNSW has a dedicated interative Moodle website which students use when preparing to take part in a MUN Assembly.
