The Non-Governmental Organizations Programme (NGO Programme) is a unique committee that 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.

Questions, inquiries, and position papers about this committee can be emailed to ipcngo@cahsmun.org.

Kevin Zhu | NGO Staff
Kevin Zhu is a Grade 12 student attending Semiahmoo Secondary, struggling through his final year of the IB Programme. Kevin first became involved with Model UN when his friends encouraged him to attend CAHSMUN 2015, which was a truly transformative experience. When he isn't frantically studying for tests, playing the recorder, rewatching episodes of The Office, or sitting on the floor contemplating life, you can often find Kevin trying to figure out the art of photography: an activity on which he has spent countless hours to no avail. Kevin is truly ecstatic to be serving as one of the Directors for the NGO Programme and strives to make it educational and exciting for all parties involved.
