NORMAC 2018

Norwich School hosted the 2018 NORMAC event, allowing multiple secondary schools to participate in this exciting project.

Aims

To teach students about the Arctic environment and its positions as an environment of natural wealth and indigenous culture. Through preparing for and participating in the council, students will gain invaluable knowledge about the environment and cultures surrounding the Arctic and its international diplomacies.

Background

Norwich School has been hosting NORMAC since 2016.

Resources

Norwich School provided use of its facilities, catering, speakers and staff members.

Impact

'My students, who have attended these last two years, have enjoyed it greatly and gained confidence, perspective and collaborative skills from the events. When faced with adversity, they seek peaceful resolution, rather than play political games and this has come, in part, from their experiences at NORMAC.'

- Head of Sixth Form, Langley School  

 

I have been to many MUN-style events over the years and this was one of the friendliest, best organised and most informative and pleasurable that I have attended. A big part of that was thanks to the lead you gave from the front throughout, which inspired my delegates and made them feel so at ease. I thought your pupils were a credit to you too - what a smashing bunch.  

- Teacher, Gresham's

Schools are able to send up to one or more delegations of 3 pupils (aged 15-18) representing one of the eight Arctic Statesor one of six Arctic indigenous people's organisations.
