Programme of Events -
This is a brief explanation of what the four days of MunoM look like.
At the beginning of the first day (Tuesday) the conference is officially opened with the opening ceremony. We will entertain speeches from the Secretary General, the Head of Board of Directors and several other guest speakers.
Later on Tuesday the ambassador's opening speeches will take place. It is obligatory to hold an opening speech for each delegation. This gives them the opportunity to address the General Assembly and ECOSOC on behalf of their delegation. The delegation's ambassador should present the opening speech. The speech can be either of a general or a specific nature; it must, however, represent the country's or organisation's opinion on the addressed subject. Speakers should not attempt to cover as many topics on the agenda as possible, but should try to come to a conclusion on what they find the current most important theme in the world. You could for example concentrate on a single item which affects many UN members. Opening speeches should not exceed 1 minute.
On Tuesday and the beginning of Wednesday lobbying takes place. Here, delegates aim to find other delegates within their committee, whose countries have similar views on the given topics. They then try to write a resolution together. More information on resolutions can be found under Resolutions
The debates take place on Wednesday and Thursday. The chairs will select submitted resolutions and then the committee will get to debate these, following the rules of procedure (more information on these can be found under Rules of Procedure
On Thursday night all participants are invited to attend the MunoM party. The entrance is free.
On the last day the councils merge to form the Forum Assembly. The 5 GA councils will form the GA Forum Assembly and the 3 ECOSOC councils merge to form the ECOSOC Forum Assembly. Here they will get to debate already accepted resolutions one more time, but in a larger group, together with the other committees.
At some point during the Forum Assembly, a crisis is often held. The Security Council, together with their President and Vice President, come up with a situation that all delegates of all councils and committees need to discuss. For example: building of a border wall between the USA and Canada, approaching of a meteor and declarations of war. These crises are mainly made for entertainment and improvisational debating and not to be taken too seriously in the whole running of the conference.
In the event of a crisis, the Security Council goes to the GA FA and ECOSOC FA and the President as well as the involved countries explain the crisis to all delegates. What then proceeds is a debate on the crisis (without lobbying or pre-ambulatory clauses, just like in the SC) and the resolution is voted on.
At the end of Friday the conference will be officially closed with the closing ceremony. There are again planned a number of speeches, including ones from all Chairs and ones from the Executive Staff. Additionally, the Press Team will present a video of that year's MunoM, which was created throughout the week.
