KeyMUN Conference

KeyMUN Conference is annual high school MUN conference hosted by LinkedKey.

With KeyMUN, we are hoping to continue LinkedKey's tradition of year-round education and extra-curricular enrichment for students all across the Greater Toronto Area. Additionally, our chairs have Model UN experience locally, regionally, and internationally, and are will bring both knowledge of MUN, and enthusiasm to KeyMUN 2019. Hope to see you there!

In 2015, The First MUN Class was started at LinkedKey, led by the Director of LinkedKey Henry L. and MUN Coach Mr. Woo who is the founder of one of Southern Ontario’s largest Model UN conferences. In 4 years LinkedKey MUN Class has become a vibrant extra-curricular activity providing many opportunities for LinkedKey students to attend local and international conferences and they have got many brilliant awards from King’s MUN, Havergal MUN, CCIMUN, SSUNS, Lakeshore MUN etc.

After hosting very successful conferences in 2018 Summer, we are excited to announce plans to host the Second KeyMUN conference in 2019 Summer. It will included regular MUN committees for students in grades 7-12 (novice, intermediate, and advanced),

KeyMUN is a young platform for student to increase your knowledge, gain valuable skills in research and writing and leadership. We invite our own delegates and delegates of other school in Ontario to enjoy KeyMUN at the beginning of summer 2019.

2019 KeyMUN Committee

NOTE:  The Novice committees, designed for delegates in Grades 7 & 8 who are completely new to MUN.  These committees will debate only one topic.  The other committees are for those with some MUN experience and high school students.

Novice = 0-1 conferences attended.
Intermediate = 1-3 conference attended.
Advanced = 3+ conference attended.

Hunger Games

This committee will be a dynamic committee, meaning that the time will constantly be moving forward and you will be challenged to deal with crises as they appear. In order to be successful in this committee, you must be well-read in the Hunger Games and must have watched all the movies, as well as be ready to think on your feet. You will not only be tested on your intellectual and social ability, but you will also be tested on your physical performance.You may even have to perform feats of archery!

Avengers

In this committee, you will play the part of earth’s mightiest heroes, the avengers! You will be discussing difficult topics regarding this world of super heroes, from collateral damage and the Sokovia accords, to the issue of the Asgardian refugees, and of course, eventually, just maybe, the infinity stones. We will have a scavenger hunt activity related to new movies, and a lot of new rules that is sure to add excitement and challenge to this committee.
Again, I look forward to working with you all, and having fun. Avengers, assemble!

Harry Potter

In the Harry Potter Committee, we hope to have a fun and exciting debate on topics such as prejudice against minority races (ie. werewolves and vampires), and bridging the gap between muggles and wizards. There will be discussions pertaining to the technological gap between the world of muggles and wizards, and even reforms to the International Statute of Secrecy. Part of your delegate score will be based on events presented throughout the day, such as a game of quidditch! Whether you are a hardcore Harry Potter fan or have only read the first book, we will ensure that everyone is able to walk out of committee a little more knowledgeable, and a lot more magical.

UNDP

Founded on November 22nd, 1965 and headquartered in New York, United States, the United Nations Development Programme is the UN’s global development network. In this committee, you are tasked of advancing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at the same time addressing the current topic that needs to be addressed. With a central focus of human rights and gender equality, it helps support solutions related to development. Even though it oversees many topical issues, we will focus on 2 main topics. Firstly, we will focus on how men play in the role of gender equality and discrimination. In the wake of the #MeToo movement and the Weinstein effect, the delegations present will have to discuss whether solutions regarding the behavior of men should be supported or if the feminist uprising should be addressed. Ethan rong topic goes here.In this committee, your resolutions and moderated caucuses matter. After a certain amount of time or after a resolution passes there will be a press release.

Fortnite

In this committee, we will debate about the competitive integrity of professional events such as cheating in competitive games, and the fair and unfair communication contracts between pro gamers and their clans. We will also be debating the world epidemic of gaming addiction and the causes, and the rise of similar competing games and copyright lawsuits.
