  1. More text on econ aspects?

    I'm ex UN and worked with over 100 governments. Mutual economic development is at core of the System's work ("functionalism"). But economic roles of UNDP, World Bank, IMF, many agencies seem missing in otherwise good text here. (The UN is not especially good at it! But it does do it.)

    • Double Voting for SecGen

      This year, over 60% of delegates had a candidate in their delegation, and about 20% more have a candidate in an affiliated delegation. For a candidate to win from an 8 person delegation, they would have to get 50% of the votes not tied to a delegation or coalition. (Source:"Who's Voted" on vote.liveyg.com)The two largest delegations had their candidates go to the final round. If we required each delegate to vote for 2 different candidates, then more "open" votes would be unlocked and delegation voting could still happen but it would be less of a problem. This would also make…

      • Create a medium sized organ for better speaking opportunities

        There should be a middle ground between the committees, ICJ, SC and the gigantic plenary sessions. With the small groups, you will get to speak a lot, but it is for no more than 25-30 people and you don't gain much large group practice- that's just like a class at school. It is very hard to get called on in the massive plenary sessions, because of the number of people and limited time. There should be an organ with a group of 50-80 people, so there could be opportunities to speak and gain more confidence with a larger group. Either…

        • Change Officer Candidates campaign limit to be $100.00 (including donations)

          Currently SecGen Candidates can have $150.00 money spent and $75.00 in donations for a total of $225.00. Elected officers have a maximum of $75.00 in money spent and $75.00 in donations. That is too much for a middle school program. We should limit total campaign contribution for all officers to be $100.00 (inclusive of all donated and paid for goods) based on fair market value or substantiated receipts.

          • Explicitly state in campaigning forms that it is to be 1 way communication & no Props

            This means that candidates should not be "asking questions and waiting for responses." ask for a show of hands, etc. We should also clearly state that they are not allowed to bring additional props to the lectern. (They can only use what is in front of them; lectern, paper, and microphone.)

            • At Summit they should show every IPC video at the closing joint session.

              When IPC makes 2 minute videos about the topic the group researched, they should show all the videos instead of just two videos that the Editor-in-Chief choses!
