Re: Zombie Pandemic Simulation
Our delegates, representing sovereign countries from many parts of the world, devoted two strenuous days after school to debate, collaborate, and negotiate how to respond to a potential global zombie virus outbreak.
“While we had many different ideas of how to handle the situation, our delegates were able to peacefully and diplomatically negotiate a detailed resolution outlining the United Nation’s response to containing/managing the virus, rescuing civilians, and developing a cure,” said Mr. Dan McGuire, English teacher. “We are proud of the hard work and time commitment from all delegates in our Model United Nations program.”
Concerning the Resolution that was written –
So we have the CRIER (Containment, Relocation, Isolation, Extermination Resolution) – Sponsored by Bahrain, Denmark, South Korea – Signed on by Mexico, Switzerland, Pakistan, Jamaica, Belgium, Zambia, Russia, Italy, and Australia
The resolution includes detailed steps toward ensuring the zombie virus does not spread further through isolation facilities and containment outposts developed globally. The resolution also outlines plans to evacuate and relocate survivors of the virus from heavily contaminated areas as well as plans to research a cure and eradicate the virus from hot spots.
Quotes from Delegates –
Anthony Cuellar ’23
On the delegates we had for the sim: I had high expectations going in and I was blown away. I was incredibly pleased with the heavy debate and high participation we had. I truly believe this is one of the strongest groups of delegates the program has seen. I believe we can come home with awards this year and I look forward to evaluating their performance at BUMUN. I was hoping to let them know before they left yesterday but many had practices to get to.
On the Sim itself: It was a fantastic experience, and it was by far one of the more interesting simulations we’ve done. I was extremely pleased with the overall performance of the entire committee and I look forward to presenting the next simulation to the program.

“This simulation forced delegates to use fiction along with logic to provide, persuade, and contract other delegates to a solution to save the world. Bahrain, Belgium, China, South Korea, the USA, Dominican Republic, and Turkey were huge contributors to the taut yet supreme quality of discussion. While this task was not easy by any means, all delegates formed blocks and managed to agree on the CRIPE resolution. A solution would break up resources, funds, research, and vaccines between multiple nations in that block. With the great collection of delegates, we could have a riveting debate. I can’t wait to do it again at BUMUN.”
