In an alternate reality, Westralia, having prospered since its secession, starkly contrasts with a struggling Australia. As economic disparity grows, Australia eyes Westralia’s thriving resources, threatening the independent nation’s sovereignty. With tensions escalating, Westralia braces for a crisis that could redefine regional power dynamics and test its resilience against its former compatriot’s demands.

Crisis Point is an 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 is Crisis Point for?

Crisis Point is open to all high-school students interested in, or would like to learn more about, diplomacy and international affairs. Crisis Point engages high-school students of any experience in a simulated event, run by experienced UN Youth facilitators.
