Issues on the agenda 2020

Issue on the agenda can be seen below. The research reports for MSMUNQ are breaking new ground and will be in the form of a multimedia presentation which will help guide young delegates to a richer and deeper understanding of the issues on the agenda. Our student executive team is also pleased to share a delegate preparation guide to help young delegates navigate their way into learning how to analyse, research and think critically about the issues on the agenda from the perspective of their assigned delegations. MSMUNQ aims to build education for advocacy, and each committee will be encouraged to engage in a service activity relating to the Sustainable Development Goal, which will take place on the second half of the second day of the conference from 12:00-16:00 Saturday 28th of March 2020.
