Nii Morton: Nii is a 16-year-old from Guinea, Africa. He is the Chief Executive Officer and founder of his company, Vermo Reality, which promotes the use of virtual reality technology in the classrooms of Guinea. Vermo aims to help students recall what they learned in class, using virtual reality to make it easier for them to visualise this material.

Visual (spatial) learning is a learning style in which students are able to understand and retain information if they digest it visually rather than traditionally. Students who learn visually are more successful creatively and have higher special senses. According to Forbes, 65% of learners in the world identify as visual learners. Visual learners can struggle retaining information that they learn by reading textbooks or listening to lectures. The use of videos, drawings, or in this case, virtual reality, can be a turning point for visual students.

Sara Ferasat: Sara is a 28-year-old from Iran. She has earned her Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees in Design in Tehran. She owns and runs her own brand, Tiida, where she designs clothing.  She would like to internationalise her brand by improving her international connections and networking.

Women’s fashion in Iran has many different limitations. Women must cover their heads/hair, and in the past, women were expected to wear shapeless clothing and dress in drab colours. The latest trend for women in Iran is to use more colours in their wardrobe, to wear patterned hijabs, and wear more fitted clothing.

These two impressive and completely culturally diverse individuals can both be found at the Rome Business Game, one of the programmes under the International Careers Festival which is in its 10th year. Societal issues are presented to the participants of the programme. They must then come up with solutions to these conflicts. Dr. Luca Marco Giraldin von Lahnstein, who has a Master’s Degree in Marketing Management from EMLYON, has been the Director of the Business Game since 2014 and presented it during the Opening Ceremony. “This workshop is different from all the other simulations,” he said, “because there is not a single solution to the problem we give. We want to promote a 360° view of it [the problem.]”

Daniela Conte spoke to Team 4 reporters on the 10th anniversary of the festival and the Business Game specifically. Conte highlighted the importance of the intercultural background of the participants in the simulation. “If you want to work in an international company in the future, maybe you’re working with ten different nationalities, so you have to be very open minded.” Conte also described the ever growing nature of the festival and reminisced on the past ten years. “We started with just a small group of 200 people most of them were Italians.” Conte looks forward to this year’s festival.

Imagine having dinner in Hell and Heaven. A banquet full of people around with their arms tied. Which do you think would make a difference between the two? In The Great Divorce C.S. Lewis described people in Hell as fighting against each other in order to reach for food, whereas in Heaven collaborating with each other, feeding the person on the opposite side of the table. Collaboration in fact has been the key point touched on by all the speakers in today’s Opening Ceremony of the International Careers Festival, celebrating its 10 th anniversary.

 

From 2009, the International Careers Festival has been the greatest opportunity offered to young people to practice collaboration in a multicultural environment. The Opening Ceremony was a celebration of diversity. As the Deputy Minister, Lorenzo Fieramonti stressed, “Diversity is a great ingredient of a good social life”.

 

Too often we act as if time and space have no boundaries. But in fact, time is limited and we should all pray for more. We should not sit down waiting for the change; we should be the change all together.

Collaborate rather than trying to stand out solo! The International Careers Festival is the perfect occasion to do so. In her speech, Wendy Wiver, first Counsellor and Bilateral and Foreign Policy at the British Embassy in Rome, remarked on the importance of preserving diversity and considering inequality a resource.

 

Participants can choose among four projects of the Festival according to their skills and interests. Internationalisation is the link among all the programmes. As Daniele Conte, President of the Giovani nel Mondo Association and Executive Director of the ICF said, “International means that we all are interconnected and affected by what is happening around the world”.

 

The original and most comprehensive programme among the four, the Rome MUN (Model United Nations), offers the opportunity to join a diplomatic simulation of the United Nations, one of the international organisation that mostly promotes diversity and demands for collaboration.

Secondly, the Rome Business Game, devoted to allowing young people to experience the world of business through case study competitions. Despite the competitive nature of the programme, participants are immersed in a collaborative environment in an effort to reach common solutions. Dr. Marco Giraldin von Lahnstein, director of the programme, suggested that in a company it is more important to focus on the human capital rather than on the economic capital.

 

Reporting during the Festival, the Rome Press Game participants get the chance to act as journalists and translators. Programme Director Shanti Kodituwakku Hettiarachchilage defined internationalisation as “breaking boundaries and making diversity a strong point in ourselves”. The last programme offering the opportunity to experience the multicultural aspect of the Festival is the International Careers Course.

Participants acquire and strengthen their soft skills through practical workshops, preparing for a successful international career.

The enthusiasm of the speakers who participated in the previous editions inspire us to be the change the world needs. Let’s be the Youth Leaders of Today!

Let’s find out something more about UNHCR:

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) was created in 1950, in the aftermath of the Second World War, to help millions of Europeans who had fled or lost their homes. Today, 68 years later, the organization is still at work and protects and assists refugees all over the world. In 1954, UNHCR won the Nobel Peace Prize for fundamental work in Europe.

The beginning of the 21st century saw UNHCR help in the main refugee crises in Africa, the Middle East and Asia. UNHCR was also asked to use its expertise to help many internally displaced people from conflicts and expand their role in helping stateless people.

UNHCR now has more than 16,765 employees. It works in a total of 138 countries and the budget, which in its first year was $ 300,000, grew to $ 6.54 billion in 2016.

 In 2015 he celebrated the 65th anniversary. During his life, UNHCR has helped over 50 million refugees to start their lives successfully.

Primary purpose at UNHCR is to safeguard the rights and well-being of people who have been forced to flee. Together with partners and communities, UNHCR works to ensure that everybody has the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another country also striving to secure lasting solutions.

For over half a century, UNHCR has helped millions of people to restart their lives. They include refugees, returnees, stateless people, the internally displaced and asylum-seekers.

The Costa Group is the largest Italian travel group and the Europe’s number one cruise operator. It is integral part of Carnival Corporation & plc, the world’s biggest cruise operator with more than 103 ships; The Costa Group comprises the brands Costa Cruises S.p.A., AIDA Cruises and Costa Asia.

With 27 ships on service and 76'000 available beds offered, The Costa Group is headquartered in Genoa (Italy) and sails to over 250 destinations worldwide in the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, The Baltic Sea, The Caribbean, Central and South America, the United Arab Emirates, the Far East, the Indian Ocean, the Red Sea, plus Round-the-World cruises. It is expected within 2021 that 6 ships of new generation will be integrated to the fleet, according to criteria of responsible innovation that is marking a new trend in the cruise industry.

From 70 years, Costa Cruises represents hospitality and Italian style.

From the beginning, we operate with passion to make our guests find the most wonderful places all over the world, offering them the opportunity to explore new countries and to meet different cultures, with respect for their identities.

As the only Cruise Company sailing the Italian flag, we need the duty and the prestige for being ambassador of Italian values in the world and for representing Italy along the destinations during our itineraries.

For us in Costa, the responsible innovation plays a fundamental role when designing future ships and developing onboard experience, that we plan and organize with great attention for details to offer an oriented holiday towards local cultures in order to be more and more responsible travellers.

Since our first voyage with Anna C on the 31st March 1948 from Genoa to Buenos Aires, it was 70 years ago, we sail all over the world bringing the Italian flag with pride, yesterday as nowadays.

We have never stopped. During all these years, we collected many stories: one for each of our ships. For example, the Franca C was the first ship in the world built for cruising. It was the 1957. Time after time, shapes, sizes and design changed and we introduced balconies in the most of cabins; the preferences and the needs of guests evolved, but our values and promises did not change, such as the focus of constantly putting guest at the centre of our thoughts.

This is the reason why we marked a route looking for innovation and responsible development as pillars of our future; as a matter of the fact, we are engaged to minimize the environmental impact over destinations we visit with you, together.

Participate in the Festival and you will have the opportunity to get in touch with this dynamic and multicultural company! Don’t miss this great opportunity! Join the Festival to find out more about Costa but first don’t forget to fill in the registration form. See you in Rome the 11th and the 12th March at the International Careers Fair!

My name is Giulia Brandão Rocha and I come from São Paulo, Brazil.

It all began when I started looking for opportunities to develop new skills outside the college environment due to the traditional way of learning in the classroom, which does not bring the whole knowledge. Students of International Relations have a multifarious opinion regarding the world, but when they meet people who live in different backgrounds and cultures, their overview is altered. As one of these students, I feel the necessity to have an experience like this and participate in international events, especially because I never traveled outside my country. Consequently, the chance to be an Ambassador of the International Careers Festival it is the opportunity I found to be among talented people and students who are promoting and building together an event full of diversity.

Being an Ambassador of the Festival is different from everything I have ever done. My experience as the Brazilian Ambassador of the Festival is enriching to my personal and professional skills due to the tasks and duties to promote the event, such as presentations and public speeches to many people. Beyond that, during the promotion, you start new friendships with promoters from all over the world and with participants.

The best part is the feedback from presentations: hearing “thank you so much for sharing it” from people that did not know about the event, seeing them interested in the opportunity and asking questions is amazing! At last, I am looking forward to seeing the results of all promoters and be able to enjoy this extraordinary event in March 2019.

 

My Name is SALHI Narimane from Algeria. I am an activist in the Youth sector, I am Master student in Finance and I work as a product manager for a pharmaceutical company. In 2017 I started my journey with the ICF as a promoter in Algeria and a participant as a Delegate in the RomeMUN in the UNEP representing Russia. 

I started working on the promotional campaign on Facebook and several social media making also some presentations for students. The journey was not that easy, it was my first promoting experience and I faced some difficult situations but I managed them and I found the right solutions. Then big day came, I took a plane with my delegation and we were finally in Rome participating in the event of which we were talking about for months. I enjoyed every single moment of the event and I decided to come do it again. For my second participation I was selected as a Coordinator and a Co-Chair having then a double responsibility. As a Coordinator I was working with the promoters in the MENA region and in some African countries. We had some online meetings, I received their reports, I answered to their questions and I helped them promoting the event. I was promoting the event as well and I had the honor to share my amazing experience with all the others. I also had the chance to talk about the event on a tv show. Anyway my commitment with the International Festival Career didn’t stop here since I also was selected as a Co-Chair. In this role I had the honor to work with Mr George; we were chairing together the UNESCO committee which was the biggest in Rome MUN 2018. I was giving advices with the Delegates on the Facebook group to help them getting ready and making their preparation easier. I some made webinar sessions for them to answer their questions, doing that even during my work lunch breaks because I think that it’s very important to be there for the Delegates since for most of them It was the first MUN experience so I was focused on training them about the procedures’ rules. The big day came and I met them, I was amazed by their motivation and I saw how the conference made a positive impact on them.

The first day most of the Delegates were shy ,but starting from the second session all of them got involved. They were debating in a very professionaly and, to be honest, it was very difficult to choose the best Delegate since they all did their best. They learned how to speak in public and how to defend the position of their assigned countries. We experienced a very strong relationship which it was deeper than that of a Co-Chair with their Delegates. I felt they were under my responsibility and since I work in the health sector, when I feel that one of my Delegates is sick or pale or feeling bad I try my best to make him/her feel better. We were all like brothers and sisters, we had great moments and we learned together while having fun. In one committee there were people from different backgrounds, different countries and different cultures but the ICF bond us as one big family. I really feel at home and I can’t wait for the next edition to meet the best people ever. The International Careers Festival is not just an event, it’s a community, it’s a family where this big world become a small home. I met a lot of people in other countries, then I met them again in Rome, and I am sure I will meet them again. I made strong friendships thanks to the International Careers Festival and, as a youth activist I think this event helps for a better future because youth is the future and through this kind of events we can spread tolerance and peace and we can hope for better world and a better future because our generation is able to make a positive change.

This year I am the Coordinator of North Africa and I am happy to work with Hossem BERKAN who is my former Delegate in Algeria MUN, and shined in the Rome Press game in 2018. He is one also one of my promoters fo this year, and we will do our best to spread the concept of this great event to people sharing with them our experience. I feel very committed to this event because I learned a lot ,and I would like to thank Giovani nel Mondo for having me as part of this amazing family.

 

See you in Rome!

At its 10th edition, the International Careers Festival promises to be one of the most important international events in Rome in 2019, involving brilliant students ready to challenge each other in exciting simulations. Are you curious to find out what is the ICF all about? Read the experiences of those who have already participated in previous editions and cannot wait to get back on the game for this extraordinary 10th anniversary!

For many, the International Careers Festival is a unique opportunity to get involved and put into practice their academic knowledge. This is the case of Luca De Cristofaro, 22-year-old Italian-Brazilian student of International Relations at the Orientale University of Naples. Luca has already taken part to the RomeMUN 2018 and this year is also involved in promoting the event among his colleagues. "The RomeMUN? It's a bit like being at the Simulation Olympics, competing with participants from all over the world, with different backgrounds and cultures". Not only that, it is also an opportunity to refine both diplomatic and personal skills, "I have a fantastic relationship with one of the delegates with whom I had the most heated debates and I cannot wait to see her again at RomeMUN 2019!" Luca said.

The ICF has been a stimulating and revealing experience also for Francesco Merendino, a 21-year-old Sicilian student enrolled in the Faculty of Law of the University of Messina who sees his future in the international market. According to Francesco, the Festival is one of the best possible arenas to prepare for tomorrow's work challenges, although the greatest challenge is with oneself: "in a globalized world, if you want to emerge from the mass, you always need to test your own level!". But the Festival is also an experience that leaves a deep mark, "when I came home, I felt downsized: being in contact with peers from all over the world opened my mind, made me realize that many of my certainties did not have solid foundations: it was a great stimulus for me"

Finally, there are those who will participate in the Festival for the first time and are excited to meet other students coming from all over the world to take part in intense days of simulations, workshops, seminars and debates. This is the case, for example, with Úrsula and Yasmin, 19 and 20-year-old Brazilian students the University of Lisbon School af Law. Together with many other students from Portugal, they will represent their university at the Festival. For them, the Festival is a starting point to discover the different possibilities offered by the world of international careers and to get to know the points of view of their international peers about possible solutions to face the conflicts and challenges of our century. Both determined to pursue a career in the field of international law, they are enthusiastic about being part of such a big event "I believe the world is everyday walking towards unification and integration between nations, and I’d be glad to help that happen" Úrsula said.

What are you waiting for? Apply now for the International Careers Festival and get ready to live an unforgettable experience!
