Normac – Norwich Model Arctic Council 2019
Members of our Model UN Society attended the 3rd Annual NORMAC event representing the Kingdom of Denmark, Finland and the Arctic Athabaskan Council (AAC) over a 3-day weekend.
Students had a brilliant time at an event where, it is not just important to gain a majority (as in normal Model UN events), but a consensus required for anything to get done.
The first day was spent working in groups, creating resolutions, the second in Senior Arctic Officials (SAO) meetings, followed by the formal dinner and Arctic ‘Pub Quiz’ and we finished with the Diplomat’s meetings on the Sunday. We claimed many prizes at the event, from the fun ones, ‘Most likely to eat Whale Steak’ Tom King; ‘Best Dressed Delegate’ Patrick Kong, to the more serious Best Delegation award, won by the AAC (Immy Ramsdale, Jabez Cooke, Joe Wright and Jaimeen Shah). Tom, Ruairi, Jess and Bella were also all awarded the coveted MUN Badge. Well done to all, thanks to Normac and we look forward to next year.
