East Coast Bays Rotary Club was proud to sponsor teams from both Pinehurst School and Hobsonville Point Secondary School to attend the recent Rotary's Model United Nations Assembly (MUNA)
Over 300 Year 12 and 13 students from schools across Northland and Greater Auckland area represented participating as UN countries in debates on matters of world politics and social concern. MUNA runs under ‘General-Secretary’ Ross Robertson’s management from a Friday morning to late afternoon Saturday.
The remits under discussion were:
1. The UN to ensure the fair global distribution of Covid 19 Vaccines
2. The UN to actively enforce the protection of women's rights in member nations
3. The UN member states to increase aid to expand the world food programme
4. The UN to financially support countries to end the use of landmines
5. The UN to enforce regulations on countries that do not act to reduce their carbon emissions
