Global Team Building – A Pitch 

Since its inception, the United Nations Security Council has had five permanent member countries: China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. With their veto authority, each of these permanent members carries enormous power over U.N. deliberations. The world has changed significantly since the end of World War II when the U.N. was formed, and the victors granted themselves permanent seats and veto authority. Your challenge is to propose a new and improved U.N. Security Council, by suggesting one …or two countries you think could be added to the current group of five. There’s a small catch: you have a total of two minutes in front of the security council. Should you use that time to argue for one country? Two? Present them as an inseparable pair? You choose.
