S2E5: A walk down memory lane - a TERP reunion
There is nothing that makes MEUS as special as our participants.
In this episode, Kasia and Artemis, our Interpreters Coordinators at MEUS 2021 get together with some past interpreters at MEUS!
They talk about their time at MEUS, how interpreting feels like, and how they feel about their experience looking back!
Tune in to learn about their unique perspectives.
S2E4: Friends will be friends - the social aspect of MEUS
In this episode, our Director General, Tamara, and our Organisers' Coordinator, Andrea, discuss a very special topic: Friendships!
MEUS is the foundation of many, long lasting friendships, and some say even marriages!
How does this come about? How can a political simulation be the cause of such intense relationships?
Tamara and Andrea discuss how the structure of MEUS can help causing friendships and share their own experiences with it!
S2E3: Chairing is caring
In this episode, we talk about a very special topic: Chairing!
A chair is the referee of the debate during MEUS - they take over the role of the president of each of the institutions we simulate.
Our Chairs Coordinator, Yogam, and one of our Chairs, Gregor, will explain the special system of the Council presidency, how it plays out during Model European Union Strasbourg, and what makes chairing such a special task!
S2E2: Let's play devils advocate - debating at MEUS
At Model European Union Strasbourg we simulate real politics, and nothing is as important in politics as debating.
But what is debating? What are the rules in debating, what skills are needed?
In this episode of MEUS in Focus, Director General Rhys Nugent and Photographers Coordinator Joao Pedreda talk about Debating, and what it means in the context of MEUS.
They both have plenty of experience in the topic, and prepared this podcast to share a bit of their knowledge with you!
