Welcome back for some updates on last weekend's happenings. Once again, we experienced three days of challenges, development and lots of fun. Saturday, we were delighted to have a professional workshop on negotiating, thanks to the Bonn Negotiators Team who shared their knowledge and experience in international negotiation with us.
Additionally, our weekend was filled with games and role plays on negotiating, team plays, leadership and local Bonn dice games. Experiencing a whole Security Council session, on the topic of "weapons of mass destruction in the hands of non-state actors" with special focus on the situation in Syria, the delegates gained more confidence in the official procedures of a MUN debate. “The cases were an amazing opportunity to try negotiation strategies and I enjoyed our SC debate since we are now more familiar with the rules of procedure”, as eMUN-fellow Daniela sums up her weekend.
We are already looking forward to implement this development into our online meetings and to work further on our performance during our next offline meeting in Munich, taking place in February.
