A room full of hopes from around the world. That is how we celebrated the 10th anniversary of the International Careers Festival today (March 8th 2019) and diversity the key word that filled the air in a positive and empowering way.

The main idea of the programme is to allow young people to get involved in a simulation of an international career and practice how it is working within a multicultural context.

Walking around in the crowded room between the excited chattering of the participants, we got to hear their expectations and opinions.

“We are excited to meet new people and new cultures,” said a participant from Germany, while another participant said, “I’m here to improve my experience and to win the Best delegate prize!”

Silence in the room. A beautiful voice marks the beginning of the event. An array of interesting speakers are lined up at the front. Their inspiring speeches fired up the room. First up was Dr Lorenzo Fioramonti, Deputy Minister, who inspired everyone talking about passions. He said that it is a theme that touches lots of people who study subjects not generally considered useful and stressed the importance of inclusivity. “Leave your fears behind you and approach the event in the most positive way,” said Daniela Conte, Executive Director of Giovani del Mondo Association. She continued, saying that “building a career is not something predetermined but it is more about identifying a personal path.”

Daniela Conte has an important role in the event which, as she said in 2016, has grown so much since it was born in 2009 and now involves thousands of participants and staff. It is not only about Model United Nations but also about Press Game, Business Game and International Careers Course that covers all the important aspects of international professions. A variety of topics will be discussed and debated including human rights, economy, justice, conflicts and a special Historical Committee that will take everyone back to the 1950s to simulate a crisis regarding nuclear weapons.

How about the first opinions after the ceremony?

Rome Press Game Team 1 journalists caught up with a few participants to find out where they are from and why they are excited to take part in the event. Ahmad Shah from Afghanistan told us that he took part in MUN in Afghanistan and that he learnt lots of things from the opening ceremony and that he will keep in mind the tips given. Best speaker for him? Daniela Conte because she talked about her experience.

A participant from the UK told us that he found the ceremony inspiring and agreed about the fact that cooperation is important and that the next Einstein will be a group of people.

Lastly we have, Nadia Sadiq from Moldova (but she lives in Portugal) that thinks the ceremony was a bit long but fulfilling and interesting.

Passions, diversity and collaboration are the key words of today, let’s start this experience!

In the third section, several seminars at the European institutions are organized in order to meet EU officers and to have a direct contact with professionals. This section aims also to provide students with a wide vision of the different realities operating on the Brussels area in the European field.

The Job Link module is one of the master’s strengths: it is a good start for the entrance in the Brussels job market.

RomeMUN is one of the largest United Nations simulations in Europe, joining young leaders from different parts of the world in one global forum where they meet to discuss concerns of the international community and give innovative solutions to deal with the most controversial issues in the political scenario worldwide. It is held in Rome, one of the most stunning cities in the world, where the Roman Empire governed all its provinces for centuries. The historic archaeological ruins create a fascinating atmosphere that surrounds the whole city and the events that take place there.

In this incomparable scenario, RomeMUN celebrates in March 2019 its 10th anniversary edition, a very special occasion to experience such an important conference in its maximum.

It allows the encounter of 2000 delegates from around the world, prestigious guests, and an innovative approach to foster great involvement and debate from the youth on current international issues, guided by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The objective is giving a practical scenario for public speaking, negotiation, leadership skills, team building, and capacity to draft official international documents, in a multicultural environment with participants from over 100 countries in the world.

Every simulation needs the cooperation of a fantastic group of people who guide the committees we are representing and guiding delegates in the objectives that we pursue in our conference. This is why we are opening the positions as Chairs or Officials for the special upcoming edition of RomeMUN.

The United Nations were founded on October 24th, 1945 by 51 Countries committed to preserving collective peace and security thanks to international cooperation, and they are strongly determined to thwart any kind of conflict. Today the UN is currently made up of 193 Member States.

According to its charter, the UN Security Council is committed to maintaining international peace and security, and it can be convened at any time, whenever the peace is threatened. The UN Security Council is made up of 15 members: 5 of them are permanent - China, France, Russian Federation, United Kingdom and United States of America; the remaining 10 are appointed for a two-year period mandate by the Assembly. According to the UN charter, all of the Member States are obliged to respect every Council’s decision; said decisions require a majority of at least nine votes to be approved. No decision can be made if a Permanent Member votes against it. Besides Permanent Members, the Council provides for the participation of 10 non-permanent Members that are elected on behalf of the UN State Members. The 10 non-permanent Members are elected with a two-year term of office. UN Security Council’s presidency is held for a month by each Member, in alphabetical order according to the English names of the Countries.

After 9 years, Italy took over the Presidency of The Council on November, 2017.

Italy became a UN member on December 14th, 1955. Over the years, Italy concurred with determination to the elaboration of the General Assembly and Security Council’s Resolutions, that gave life to major innovations in terms of international regulations. Campaigns in favour of the moratorium of the death penalty; the promotion of gender equality and women and children’s rights; battles against every kind of religious discrimination and in favour of freedom of thought - these are some of the issued that involved our country. Italy has also shared its responsibility arising from collective security, already fulfilling a consecutive six-time role of non-permanent member of UN Security Council,  and participating in peace operations; on November 1st began Italy’s presidency of the UN Security Council.

The Italian Presidency agenda is particularly tight. Amongst the most important appointments, Libya’s briefing (November 16th) and the security challenges briefing in the Mediterranean  (November 17th) will be chaired by Ministry of Foreign Affairs and of International Cooperation Angelino Alfano and will be attended by General Secretary Guterres and ONU Special Representative for Libya, Salamè.

Italy founded its candidacy on the given contribute, and is able to continue to offering to the international community: its mass media communication; conflict prevention activities and promotion of dialogue as a main instrument to their resolution; commitment in UN’s peace operations; knowledge of the Mediterranean Sea and its dynamics, given the international importance; human rights, fundamental freedoms and Rule of Law’s promotion.

On 30 November, there will be a briefing on the "Destruction and trafficking of cultural heritage by terrorist groups and in situations of armed conflict", one of the main themes of the Italian mandate. There will also be numerous other events dealt with in November in accordance with the frequency established by the Council. They mainly involve updates on a number of situations in the following countries: The Central African Republic, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Sudan/Darfur, Libya, Burundi, Syria (regarding three different fronts: chemical weapons, humanitarian and political matters), the Middle East, as well as discussions on sanctions against North Korea.

Italy will be a non-permanent member throughout 2017, while in 2018 it will be replaced by the Netherlands: the two countries made agreements on dividing the 2017-2018 term, given the equal footing reached in June 2016 elections.

Organization: the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), a specialized agency of the United Nations, was established as an international financial institution in 1977 as one of the major outcomes of the 1974 World Food Conference.

IFAD is thus dedicated to eradicating rural poverty in developing countries.
