Held in an online accessible format, UN Youth NSW’s Crisis Point will see delegates (high school students) from all across New South Wales come together to participate in a simulated global security or humanitarian crisis with the responsibility to work together, problem-solve and negotiate a solution.
Crisis Point is a whole-day interactive problem-solving simulation that puts delegates (students) in the shoes of key diplomats and stakeholders to solve global security and humanitarian crises. Broking solutions in real-time to a crisis that evolves depending on the actions you take, delegates collaborate in their teams, utilising their teamwork, negotiation and creative-thinking skills to represent their own interests while compromising in the collaboration with other stakeholders. Crisis Point is a fantastic way to immerse yourself in simulated international and global issues to gain the skills and understanding of diplomacy.
Who should attend?
Crisis Point is open to all high school students in Years 9 to 12 who are interested in, or would like to learn more about, diplomacy and international affairs. Crisis Point engages students of any levels of Interactive Problem Solving (IPS) experience in a simulated event, run by experienced UN Youth facilitators. Crisis Point is a fantastic event to learn more about debating, public speaking, teamwork, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, as well as international affairs. No matter your experience level, our UN Youth facilitators will guide and support you through the entire event!
