Are you a student of international relations, diplomacy, political science, law? Do you want to work within UN institutions in the future? Do you wish to start getting experience but don't know how? Make your first step and participate in Diplomatic simulations of the UN.

 

Model UNs are programmes geared towards teaching students the work of the United Nations. Participants act as delegates of the Member States as they replicate the debates and discussions held within actual UN committees. The goal of this experience-based program is to find common and effective solutions on the agenda topics through the approval and signing of resolutions.

On 2010 Giovani nel Mondo launched one of the biggest MUN in the world the Rome Model United Nations and established a network of partnerships with other Model UN’s in the world so we are ready to invite you to participate in one of the following Model UN Projects:

  • SAIMUN (Sub Saharan International Model United Nations 2nd July -6th July  2018) is a five-day international relations simulation for both high school and university/college students that is held annually at the United Nations Office in Nairobi (UNON), Gigiri.
  • BIMUN (Babcock International Model United Nations 8th July - 13th July 2018) is a national initiative of young leaders to engage and energize young supporters around the work of the United Nations. It is the first Model United Nations in Nigeria organized by a private university and it is an internationally diverse Model United Nations Conference.
  • SLMUN (Sri Lanka Model United Nations August 31st – September 2nd 2018) marks 11 years of SLMUN being the prime forum for youth around Sri Lanka to voice out their opinions, debate and formulate solutions for global issues. For 11 years, SLMUN has united youth around the Island and around South Asia to tackle global issues in a diplomatic perspective and come to solutions with compromise. Understanding the pivotal role youth play in the future of this world, our theme for SLMUN 2018 is ‘Redefining Global Diplomacy’ which is aimed at the future generations of world leaders to think out of the box and engage together in diplomatic efforts, to try and achieve what others before them have not: a better and safer world.
  • IELMUN (31st August – 4th September 2018), is a Model United Nations conference for high school and university students, held in the 134-year-old high school, Istanbul (Erkek) Lisesi. IELMUN was the first and only conference to organize a trilingual conference (Turkish, German, English) in Turkey and one of the few in the world, in 2012, when our journey first began.

 

Please note, only ONE place is available for each project, that allows you to get Free conference fee and accommodation. The flight ticket and other costs are at your expense.

However, several places are reserved for our delegates with total fees at your personal expense.

In case of interest, please send an email with your updated cv at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and specify to which MUN you would like to participate.

Around 2000 participants from 100 countries. More than 160 promoters from all over the world. 4 different simulations, seminars and many workshops for young people to chose from in order to develop further knowledge and gain insights in the fields of economics, politics and international relations, communication and journalism. The Executive Director of the association in charge of the organisation and planning of the Festival, Daniela Conte, proclaimed at her speech in the opening ceremony on the 24th of sarch at LUISS Guido Carli University of Rome, that this festival can be seen as “a journey of friendship, opportunities, challenges, hope and inspiration”. But what does the festival stand for exactly?

 

For the ninth time this year, young people from all around the world come to the “eternal city” of Rome to participate on the International Careers Festival 2018 from the 24th of March until the 27th of March 2018.The Festival, which has been initiated by the non-profit organisation Giovani nel Mondo with the RomeMUN in 2009 and later developed as it is today, stands for cosmopolitanism and interculturality.The whole festival consits in the RomeMUN, the Rome Business Game, the Rome Press Game and the International Careers Course.

In the Rome Model United Nations delegates have to represent a specific country in a committee, which has been assigned to each of the delegates before. The 10 committees deal with topics, for instance migration policy in Europe, quality education, the situation of refugees in the world and possible interventions to ensure global security by the nuclear disarmament. Besides, prestigious speakers are invited to present speeches regarding these various topics; for instance: Ambassadors, professors of the Rome University of International Studies.

Interculturalism and internationally are relevant topics  in the Rome Buisiness Game, too. The Program Director, Luca Marco Giraldin Von Lahnstein, welcomed 1000 participants this year. Economists-to-be can exercise themselves in learning more about economic strategies, leading companies and resolving economical and political difficulties within a current expanding world. Hereby, the interest for intercultural issues, on which the whole festival stands for, can further be stimulated. The connection between economy and culture helps to widen one’s own horizon and opens the access to a cross-cultural and cross-cutting knowledge.

The Rome Press Game is the third simulation and focuses on journalism, international communication, interpretation and translation. Thus, the participants are asked to report on the International Careers Festival and write appropriate articles, record radio-broadcasts, and create and edit videos. During her speech at the opening ceremony, the Program Director of the Press Game, Shanti Kodituwakku Hettiarachchilage underlined the possibility to gain the so called soft skills which can only be developed in a multicultural environment while creating also interpersonal relationships.

Gaining international experiences, simulating the real working life, challenging oneself and testing one’s boundaries, improving one’s ability to work in a team, getting to know new people from different cultures- these are just some of the answers participants gave regarding their motivation to participate at the International Careers Festival.

Also the International Careers Fair, which is accompanied by 44 exhibitors, takes place at the Rome University of International Studies on Monday the 26th of March and Tuesday the 27th.

Within the fair, mock interviews, workshops, CV reviews and recruitment sessions are offered by the companies which take part, including "global players" like LIDL, UNICEF and UNESCO Giovani.

Through a wide range of tasks, the international level of participants, organisers and topics stress the original idea of the Festival to be an occasion where talent meets opportunity.

 

 

 

Eva Münster – Rome Press Game – Team 2

Delegates from around the world travel to Rome to participate in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

The 2018 International Careers Festival commenced in the opening ceremony at 10am on Saturday the 24th of March. Over 300 delegates attended, participants in the upcoming conference, which will take place over the course of this weekend. The event was hosted at LUISS Guido Carli University and sponsored by the Giovani nel Mondo Association.

After some welcome remarks led by Hon. Cristiana Paciocco, Vice President of the Committee for Welfare and Health, and Dr. Fabio Bisogni of UNINT University, the Executive Director of the Rome International Careers Festival (RICF), Dr. Daniela Conte shared her reflections of the past and thoughts on the future. In her speech about RICF, Dr. Conte stated, “everything is a journey,” emphasizing the opportunities the three realms of the conference represent for proactive delegates.

Next, each program director introduced their personal philosophies and the natures of their programs. Dr. Luca Marco Giraldin von Lahnstein presented the Business Game as an incredible opportunity for young entrepreneurs. He described how businesspeople often alienate the idea of success from the ideas of resilience and failure; “we must be able to think outside the box,” in order to take full advantage of the opportunities before them. The Business Game is a simulation that allows young participants to learn from past challenges using real life business cases to gain managerial decision-making skills applicable in the business world today.

Shanthi Kodituwakku Hettiarachchilage, the director of the Press Game, followed the Business Game introduction, how the RICF prepares delegates for real world situations. She highlighted the widespread value of participating in the RICF, bringing to light the great things from all aspects of the festival. The Press Game incorporates training and “learn by doing” simulations in radio, television, and web journalism, giving students a broad understanding of the multidisciplinary industry.

The final program, the Model United Nations (ROMEMUN), was introduced by Secretary General Jorge Alejandro Gonzalez Galicia. The ROMEMUN was the foundation of the RICF, and its model of learning through simulation is the connecting value through the three programs. ROMEMUN allows delegates to learn the art of diplomacy by debating world issues and developing public speaking skills that they can use in any professional sphere. He encouraged delegates to carry these skills from their committee sessions to their outside lives, explaining that, “we as brothers of mankind, have to fight for something, because somewhere, someone needs you.”

This moving final statement set the stage for Mr. Gianni Ferrario, a Happiness Trainer, to unite delegates in movement, sound, and laughter. This inspirational presentation, complete with meditation, visualization, and balloons, left delegates feeling cheerful and excited to take charge of their futures, starting here, at the RICF.
