MUNA, the Model United Nations Assembly, is based on a continuing successful project, originally organised by the Rotary Club of Forbes, NSW, which has now been adopted by Rotary Districts and is enthusiastically supported by the United Nations.  Many Rotary Districts run their own MUNA event each year.  National MUNA brings together winners of District MUNA events and some other teams to debate United Nations related issues in the National Capital.

Each participating team is sponsored by a Rotary Club or District.  Teams are made up of two or three Year 11 or 12 students, with each team representing a nation at a simulated Model United Nations Assembly. Teams debate topics of international concern such as world peace, environmental issues and human rights over two days at the Museum of Australian Democracy (old Parliament House).

Before attending, students will have familiarised themselves with the nation they represent by studying its history, politics, economics, people, geography, international alignment and real life stance on world affairs. Where the nation selected by a team has an Embassy or High Commission in Canberra, teams are encouraged to make contact with them to request a visit, or alternatively to seek information on the country's position relevant to the issues relating to MUNA topics. A number of Embassies and High Commissions look forward to assisting the students and we encourage teams to make contact with their selected nation's Embassy, High Commission or Consulate. 

BENEFITS: - The students develop an awareness of the working of the United Nations and of the country that they are representing. They have an opportunity to practice and develop their public speaking and debating skills, and gain a better understanding of the international positions of other countries.
