These activities help students learn to reach consensus in a large group setting by engaging in a mock summit conference on a controversial issue. Students first learn about the theme of the summit, are assigned a region or interest group to represent and introduced to the idea of consensus and strategies for bringing about consensus. Students learn about the proposed agenda for the summit and develop a profile of their delegation’s interests and concerns. Next, students engage in two rounds of drafting proposals, debate and negotiation aimed at reaching consensus on a set of resolutions. Finally, students debrief what they have learned about the issues raised at the summit and about the challenges of consensus building.
