By Clelia Maria Vegezzi, Ludovica Ferranti and Eleonora Peruch

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!

MUN means "United Nations Model" and represents an educational and academic simulation of the diplomatic decision-making process. During a "MUN conference", students aged between 14 and 29 learn about diplomacy, international relations, the UN and other international organizations. Model UN participants include middle school, college and university students; MUN challenges its participants, called "delegates", doing research, speaking in public, discussing and writing skills, teamwork and cultural empathy.

The MUN participates in the International Careers Fair to be held on 11 and 12 March at the Sheraton Parco De 'Medici Palace in Rome. Registration for the Fair is free and you can apply by filling out the online form; in detail, the United Nations Model body will present a detailed presentation of the Organization, how it was born and how it has grown over the years, objectives and results.

For other similar opportunities visit the section International Organizations

The United Nations Model was born as a series of simulations organized and coordinated by the students, it is believed that the first MUN conference was held at the University of San Lorenzo from 11 to 13 February 1949. Its organizer was Dr. Harry Reiff, Head of the Department of History and Government, with the assistance of departmental colleague Otto L. George. Dr. Reiff was a technical advisor to the United States delegation at the 1945 San Francisco Conference (where the United Nations Charter was drafted) and a collaborator of the United Nations Conference of Organizations in London in 1945-46 (where it was founded the UN).

Over the years, these conference simulations have been perfected, they have spread to universities and have found various associations and companies willing to collaborate with partnerships.

Today the MUN experience consists of an educational simulation and / or academic activity in which students can learn about diplomacy, international relations and the United Nations. MUN involves and teaches participants to talk, discuss and write skills, as well as critical thinking, group work and leadership skills. The participants in the United Nations Model Conferences, known as "delegates", are divided into committees and assigned to countries with the task of representing them, or sometimes representing political figures operating in the sector. Delegates conduct research before the conferences and formulate strategies that they will then discuss with their fellow delegates in committee, remaining faithful to the real position of the member they represent. At the end of a conference, the delegates who have shown the best performances in each committee are rewarded.

In recent decades, the MUN model has spread to eastern and southern Asia, the Middle East, Europe, North Africa and sub-Saharan Africa.

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.

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.

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.

 

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.
