2020 is the first year of NWMUN-HS. As such, we are launching our conference with one committee and two topics. At the beginning of the first session of the day, the delegates will choose the order of the two topics, and begin debating the first. Given that the conference is one day in length, we anticipate that only one topic will be discussed in full. The order topics are listed on this page is not relevant; the order they are discussed in will be decided upon by the delegates during the conference.
