The Rome Press Game - together with RomeMUN, Rome Business Game, and The International Career Course - is one of the projects organized by Giovani nel Mondo, during the International Career Festival.

The Rome Press Game particularly is the project entirely dedicated to the world of journalism, international communication, and interpretation and translation. It is the first role-playing game in the world to simulate the news and media on several levels. It is also the perfect practice for all aspiring translators interested in working as part of an international news team, reproducing materials in multiple languages.

Reasons to get involved:

The Rome Press Game gives participants the opportunity to experience four days as real journalists as they interview ambassadors, UN officials, and other special guests. They will also be tutored and guided by industry experts, technicians, cameramen, and journalists in order to create professional media.

Since it will be taking place within the International Careers Festival, the Press Game will also act as the main news source for all the activities which make up the Festival.

Which are the main duties of the Rome Press Game participants?

Participants of the Rome Press Game will be divided into teams and will follow a set schedule of activities: aspirant journalists will carry out their interviews with the contribution of thousands of young Festival participants and our many prestigious personalities and special guests taking part in the event. The team that stands out the most, and is thus chosen by our judges, will be awarded various prizes such as interview and internship opportunities with our partners.

The simulation uses the "learning by doing" approach so that participants can acquire a full spectrum of theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of journalism and media, such as the necessary skills to utilize new means of multimedia and online journalism or designing and developing informative products and many more.

For more information about the project click here!

 

The Rome Press Game is, therefore, most suited for students of journalism, communication, translation/interpretation, languages, literature, and philosophy. It is also necessary to have a B1 level of English with a certificate. In case you do not have a certificate, you can take an online English test provided by our official partner Babel (you will receive by email the link to access the English test).

 

The procedure for the application is really easy!

The first step is the application of aspiring participants that must be completed and submitted by the 21st of December 2018, then you just have to follow the automatic steps of the system to complete the registration.

For those who want to apply for a fully funded scholarship, the deadline is December 14th.

Then, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the activity, Giovani nel Mondo has decided to offer its members a further opportunity, that is the possibility of following a live training course pre-conference. It will be a series of in-depth meetings both on the practical-procedural aspect of the event and on international careers in general, so as to make participants more aware and therefore better prepared to face the experience of the Festival.

This training course will also take place within a unique setting: the amazing Costa Diadema ship, thanks to the partnership with Costa Crociere. Being an International Careers Festival, GnM will offer a trip to some of the most beautiful cities of the Mediterranean in the week before the Festival. During the week of travel, it will be possible to participate every day in a 3-hour session of ad hoc structured preparation for the final event of the Festival. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to experience the countless services offered by Costa Diadema and visit wonderful cities such as Savona-Marseille-Barcelona-Palma de Mallorca and Palermo, all destinations that over the centuries have been the theater of exchange of cultures, traditions, history, trade and collaboration among different nations.

For the first time, therefore, the Festival becomes itinerant and, in addition to the Roman experience, interested participants can also join the pre-event training week.

Organization: UNHCR - United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, is one of the more embedded UN Agencies, directly involved in rescue and emergency operations all over the world. 

n 1954, UNHCR won the Nobel Peace Prize for its groundbreaking work in Europe. But it was not long before we faced our next major emergency. In 1956, during the Hungarian Revolution, 200,000 fled to neighbouring Austria. Recognising the Hungarians as 'prima facie' refugees, UNHCR led efforts to resettle them. This uprising and its aftermath shaped the way humanitarian organisations would deal with refugee crises in the future. During the 1960s, the decolonisation of Africa produced the first of that continent's numerous refugee crises. We also helped uprooted people in Asia and Latin America over the following two decades. In 1981, we received a second Nobel Peace Prize for what had become worldwide assistance to refugees.  The start of the 21st century has seen UNHCR help with major refugee crises in Africa , the Middle East and Asia. We have also been asked to use our expertise to help many internally displaced by conflict and expanded our role in helping stateless peaple. In some parts of the world, such as Africa and Latin America, the 1951 Refugee Convention has been strengthened by additional regional legal instruments. UNHCR now has more than 10,966 members of staff. We work in a total of 130 countries and our budget, which in its first year was USD $300,000, grew to USD $6.54 billion in 2016.

In 2015, UNHCR celebrated 65th anniversary. During lifetime, we have helped well over 50 million refugees to successfully restart their lives.

"The challenge of education and communication in Palestine"

How the Embassy of Palestine in Italy is trying to face with occupation problem and society issues

Carolina Zincone works at the Embassy of Palestine in Italy as a responsible of media and communication. In this role she aims to raise awareness on what’s going on in Palestine. In fact she said that: It is crucial to know”. Her first aim is to spread knowledge on the situation in Palestine. The difficult they find in communication is the unfair game of other ambassadors; very often when it is an initiative organised by an NGO, for example Gaza and West Bank, the communication of the other states is strong and direct. She thinks instead that it is important to let people know what’s going on and not to forbid other people initiatives. She said: “The problem is that you try to communicate but then there is a sort of censorship of what you do”.

She talks in particular about education and what problems students have to face with everyday such as army aggression, school demolition and several unjustified attacks, but the main problem is the occupation that causes students difficulties not only in their studies but also in their lives because they lost their parents and friends , who were killed by occupants.

What the Embassy does, is not simply talking about people that have been killed or people that have been arrested, they want to say that the Palestinian people have many things that could be considered, they have a lot to say and to show and this occupation is an obstacle to this , and they shouldn’t be considered only as victims.

 About her work, Carolina Zincone was firstly a volunteer of UN , she said volunteering is a great experience , very interesting , they try to listen to your wishes, try to send you to place that you’re interested in and ask you to do things that you are suitable for. It is really interesting because you are in touch with local population we learn many things and I suggest to anyone interested in the work of international organisations should try to have this experience.

So it is important to know and be aware of what it is going on, in order to find out solutions and to give help. It is important to get information about conflicts around the world and to try to solve them with the aim of respect human rights and dignity.
