Join UNAGB for a day full of public speaking, diplomacy, and critical thinking at this year’s Commonwealth School Model UN Conference (COMMUN)! This conference, held in partnership with Commonwealth School in Boston, MA, is an innovative Model UN conference for middle school aged students.
Below is a brief Q & A to help you learn a little more about the event:
When will registration open for COMMUN? Registration is now open
Is this a middle or high school conference? This conference is open to middle school students in grades 6-8.
Will this conference take place online? Currently, UNAGB is planning to hold COMMUN in-person, at The Commonwealth School in Boston, MA. Attendees must provide proof of vaccination, or a negative PCR test within 48 hours of the Conference. Should circumstances change regarding public health policies, the conference will be held virtually.
My school doesn’t have a Model UN team, but I’d like to attend…are independent teams invited? Yes! Independent teams and independent delegates are welcome to attend. Parent advisors welcome!
What is the cost of registration? The cost of attendance is $55/delegate. If you attend a Title 1 qualifying school you may request a reduced delegate fee of $20/delegate.
What is the refund policy? Delegate fees may be refunded until a week before the event.
Anti-Bullying Policy & Code of Ethics
UNAGB is committed to each student’s success in a caring, responsive, and safe environment that is free of bullying, violence, or discrimination of any kind.
Delegates must treat their peers with respect and behave in a manner that helps to ensure that all students have the opportunity and support to fully participate in the conference. Students should report any instances of bullying to their chairs or to UNAGB staff.
If an instance of bullying occurs, advisors of involved students will immediately be notified. In addition to potential dismissal from the conference, violation of UNAGB’s bullying policy may prohibit delegate’s future participation in Model UN conferences for a period of time.
Delegate Code of Ethics, abridged from the first three articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:
1. Everyone is free and we should all be treated in the same way.
2. Everyone is equal despite differences in skin color, sex, religion, language, political or other opinion, national origin or other status.
3. Everyone has the right to life and to live in freedom and safety.
