The Non Governmental Organizations Programme (NGO Programme) is a new committee for CAHSMUN 2017. It incorporates what delegates think of as “traditional” Model United Nations (debating over issues, verbally) and a portion of what reporters do in the International Press Corps (writing articles based on what is happening in different committees). By doing so, delegates will not only be able to affect a committee verbally, but they would be able to affect the debate, on paper as well.

In the NGO Programme, delegates will be representing their respective NGOs, such as Amnesty International, or Conservation International, and will be partaking in the debate of committees that their NGO pertains to. Furthermore, delegates will also be required to write an article based on their NGO’s position on what they have accomplished in each committee session. It is up to these NGOs to sway the debate in their favour and to complete their agenda.

NGO committee sessions will be both fun and frantic: delegates would have to be actively debating, while also writing about the debate in terms of their NGO’s agenda. NGO delegates can also find themselves giving their input on resolution papers, discussing different solutions in unmoderated caucuses, or even making alliances with other delegates.

The NGO Programme is a committee suited for experienced delegates, but is open to delegates of all experience levels wishing to challenge their capacity in MUN. Position papers are mandatory for delegates in this committee. Please read about CAHSMUN’s Position Paper policy, which can be found under the list of committees on the “Committees” page.
