UNA York is delighted to bring you Professor Adrian Kendry, former NATO Senior Defense Economist and Advisor to NATO’s 12th Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen. Join us for an extremely promising talk titled: "Unchaining Prometheus: Preserving and Strengthening the Post-War Global Political, Economic and Security Order" as well as a Q&A session afterwards.
Come along to one of UNA-York’s signature events, the MiniMUN. This one-day simulation of what an actual Model UN conference looks and feels like will prepare delegates to excel in this field and give them a taste of what to expect when they come, while still having fun and communicating the rules in an accessible manner. It will serve as a valuable introduction to resolution writing and the later stages of committee. Presenting three committees, chaired by our training officers and senior delegates it will cater for all delegates, from those who have just started to those who are hardened veterans. This event was so popular last year that an extra one was organised due to the critical acclaim it reached, and several committee members attribute this event as the main reason they remained part of the club.

Come along to UNA York's first social of the year! If you like to have a drink, want to 'get political' as the night progresses with like-minded people or like to dance; this is the night for you. Come enjoy a bar crawl ending in a club night with everyone from the society, just the right mix to cater all people. View the Facebook event here
Come along to our first full training session where we will begin explaining and understanding the rules of Model UN while still discussing pertinent international issues. Pick nations and discuss the crucial issue of human rights on the Internet while understanding your nation’s point of view with other new delegates. Resources will be provided with a background guide and papers written by actual delegates detailing the positions of each country. This will be a fantastic session to get started with Model UN and begin moulding top delegates. View the Facebook event here
Set up last year, our WoMUN (Women in MUN) forum aims to provide support for female members of UNA York. This informal session is being organised by Ashvini, our Campaigns Officer, and run by female UNA York committee members and senior delegates. Come along to meet other members, to find out more about the leadership opportunities UNA York can provide and to help shape the future of WoMUN. (And to enjoy some snacks!)

Come along to the first meeting of one of York's most successful societies as we begin the year discussing international issues. Learn about what we do, how you can get involved and even get started with a debate on nuclear proliferation in North Korea. It should be a relatively relaxed session where everyone can get used to what Model United Nations is, and what the UNA does during the year. View the Facebook event here
