On the day

The role of Chair can be rotated and we suggest you have two wingers who can assist the Chair in making sure that there is a balanced debate and everyone’s voice is heard.
The wingers keep an eye out for delegates who've been waiting to speak for a long time, or have had too much exposure or gone on too long; some extra eyes and ears to keep up the pace and ensure that the debate is sharp and equitable.
A group of advisers who are not delegates may pass notes to any delegation on points of information or to raise questions.

Members of the press corps should be dotted around the Chamber in order to record and present the whole debate from different angles.

• Microphones for General Assembly – one microphone from each delegation that can be controlled from the Chair
• Laptop and projector to show resolutions, amendments and ‘news’ items as they occur
• Break out rooms for committee debates
• Name badges with the role of the person
• Country labels and flags for every delegation – clearly visible from a distance
• Technical support to manage any sound system and change resolutions as amendments come in on a power point
• Time to include an emergency resolution that delegates won’t be prepared for
• Water and breaks needs to be included for all participants. Lobbying can take place during these breaks
• Speaker or campaigning group making representation to the UN Assembly
• Resources on the issues being debated e.g copies of the Amnesty International magazine, New Internationalist, newspapers etc
