Wockhardt Global School at Aurangabad is hosting its first ever MUN virtually on 18th, 19th and 20th September 2020. There are six committees for the delegates to participate in this MUN. It is open for students from grade 6th to 11th to participate in the 3 day-long event. The committees are:

  1. United Nations Security Council (UNSC)
  2. Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC)
  3. World Health Organization (WHO)
  4. United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF)
  5. United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC)
  6. Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC)

The advantage of attending an MUN is that it exposes the student to international issues and how the issues affect the humanity as a whole, like the Covid-19 global pandemic. Such events prepare a student to learn and work collaboratively with fellow students, develop negotiation skills and how to resolve conflicts, apart from public speaking and communication. It develops research skills and exposes the participants to the rules and procedures of the United Nations. Moreover, a participation in such events enriches the portfolio of a student and is valued much for college and university admissions as it credits a student with leadership skills.

Wockhardt Global School is commencing its very first MUN. We would have the six Committees each with the following Agendas

1. WHO (World Health Organisation)
 
Deliberating upon a framework to provide relief to the underpreviledged at the time of the global pandemic.
 
The World Health Organization is a specialized agency of the United Nations responsible for international public health. The WHO Constitution, establishes the agency’s governing structure and principles.

It has played a special role in deciding the safety measures to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, the outburst of which lead to the global Covid-19 pandemic. Although, the impact of the pandemic has come to a downfall, WHO warns that it is still a serious global issue and requires the cooperation of all countries and it’s citizens.

2. DISEC (Disarmament and International Security Committee)
 
 
The United Nations General Assembly First Committee (also known as the Disarmament and International Security Committee or DISEC ) is one of six main committees at the General Assembly of the United Nations. It deals with disarmament and international security matters.
The 2020 China–India skirmishes are part of an ongoing military standoff between China and India. Chinese and Indian troops have engaged in aggressive melee, face-offs and skirmishes. Additional clashes also took place at locations in eastern Ladakh along the Line of Actual Control.
 

3. UNICEF (United Nations International Children’s Fund)
 
Safety Of Children at the Time of War with Special Emphasis on Child Labour in Syria.

The United Nations Children’s Fund is a United Nations agency responsible for providing humanitarian and developmental aid to children worldwide. UNICEF’s activities include enhancing childhood and maternal nutrition, improving sanitation, promoting education, and providing emergency relief in response to disasters.

The Syrian conflict has had a devastating effect on their lives, with many forced to drop out of school to support their families.

UNICEF warns Syria’s deepening economic and currency crisis will push even more kids into child labour.

4. UNHRC (United Nations Human Rights Council)
 
Advancement of the rights of woman with emphasis on woman of the lower class.

The United Nations Human Rights Council is a United Nations body whose mission is to promote and protect human rights around the world.

Gender equality is at the very heart of human rights and United Nations values. A fundamental principle of the United Nations Charter adopted by world leaders in 1945 is “equal rights of men and women”, and protecting and promoting women’s human rights is the responsibility of all States.

5. UNSC (United Nations Security Council)
 
Investigation of the Origin and Spread of the Coronavirus in the Global Pandemic.

The United Nations Security Council is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations, charged with ensuring international peace and security, recommending the admission of new UN members to the General Assembly, and approving any changes to the UN Charter.

The origin of the Corona Virus is China and therefore, plays a major role in the global pandemic. Some of the countries of the world hold China responsible for not giving a prior warning and not putting immediate restrictions to avoid the spread of the virus resulting in the Covid-19 pandemic.

6. ECOSOC (Economic and Social Council)
 
Taking initiative to control the continuous down falling GDP of the world economy.

The United Nations Economic and Social Council is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations, and is responsible for promoting higher standards of living, full employment, and economic and social progress; identifying solutions to international economic, social and health problems; and encouraging universal respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.

While there is no way to tell exactly what the economic damage from the global COVID-19 novel coronavirus pandemic will be, there is widespread agreement among economists that it will have severe negative impacts on the global economy. Early estimates predicated that, should the virus become a global pandemic, most major economies will lose at least 2.4 percent of the value their gross domestic product (GDP) over 2020, leading economists to already reduce their 2020 forecasts of global economic growth down from around 3.0 percent to 2.4 percent.
