As one of the most representative simulations of the United Nations Model, the Rome International Carees Festival, the event annually held in by the Giovani Nel Mondo association, gathered at the opening cerimony on Saturday 24th March in Rome - Italy, more than 700 students from at least 40 different nationalities, celebreting the beginning of the activities of the festival that takes place until the 27th.


One of the hot issues presented in the speeches of the directors and organizers of the event, as well as the special guests, was related to the growing challenges of multicultural, integration and inclusion. As a reflection of reality, the festival transmits, through the participation of students from all over the world, the necessity of developing skills in the field of business, communication and politics. All this enables the participants to take action in the multifaceted context of globalization. According to Daniela Conte, President and Executive Director of the Giovanni Mondo association, “The festival is a journey of friendship, opportunities, challenges, hope and inspiration”.


Exploring what each nationality has to offer concerning ideas capable of transforming our reality, the festival values inclusion through integration and teamwork, highlighting the power of unity regarding to cultural differences as a useful tool for social transformation. According to Jorge Alejandro Gonzalez Galicia, Program Director RomeMUN, “Identity as human, DNA goes beyond borders and languages. Something that is deep in each and every one of us, even if we come from different backgrounds. Respect that and debate. Humanity: something that is common to all of us to fight for a common cause. Presentation of the chair men and women. Fight against injustice, fight for awareness ”.


With a large number of women joining the festival as organizators, tutors, directors, special guests and coordinators, the ICF 2018 edition also shows us the rising of female power as one of the aspects of our complex reality. Besides, it reinforces the importance of gender equality in all spheres of social representation, taking the issue of inclusion beyond multiculturalism, showing a world of possibilities.


As future professionals who will work in an ever more international environment, it is fundamental to acquire coping skills to embrace diversity and heterogeneity of cultures. Monika Altmaier, Director of Human Resources at FAO, special guest of the opening ceremony, points out that “Rising above national dimensions is the key to be successful” reinforcing that the ability to work across boundaries is the first step to a social progress.


“The most important lesson I've learned working at the UN is to respect other cultures, to work as a team player and help each other as much as possible”. Through the cultural mosaic which makes up the festival, students will have the unique opportunity to experience in practice the daily reality, the facilities and the difficulties to act in  multicultural contexts, understanding the differences as the driver of a fair future for all .

Presentado como una de las más importantes simulaciones de las Naciones Unidas, el Rome International Careers Festival, el evento anual organizado por la asociación Giovani nel Mondo, reunió a la ceremonia inaugural sábado 24 de Marzo en Roma-Italia, más de 700 estudiantes llegados por al menos 40 diferentes países, para celebrar el comienzo de las actividades del Festival que durará hasta el 27.

Uno de los asuntos más interesante entre los discursos de los directores y organizadores del evento, de los invitados especiales también, trataba de los desafíos en el desarrollo multicultural, de la integración e inclusión. Como espejo de la realidad, el Festival transmite, a través de la acción de los estudiantes de cada parte del mundo, la necesidad en ser ábiles en muchos ámbitos por lo que concierne la globalización. De acuerdo con Daniela Conte, Presidente y Directora ejecutiva de la asociación Giovani nel Mondo, “el Festival es un viaje lleno de amistad, oportunidad, desafíos, esperanzas e inspiraciones”.

Explorando lo que cada País ofrece con respecto a las posibilidades de transformar nuestra realidad, los valores del Festival a través de integración y trabajo de grupo, resaltando la fuerza de estar juntos en referencia a las diferentes culturas como una buena herramienta para la transformación social. Según Jorge Alejandro Gonzalez Galicia, Director del Programa RomeMUN, “Siendo humanos, el DNA va más allá de las fronteras e idiomas. Algo profundo en cada persona, aunque los diferentes contextos. Respeta eso y discute. Humanidad: algo que es común a todos lo que combaten para un motivo común. Presentación de los hombres y mujeres sentados allí. Lucha contra la injusticia, lucha para la conciencia social”.

Con muchas mujeres que participan al Festival como organizadoras, tutoras, directoras, invitadas especiales y coordinadoras, la edición 2018 de ICF muestra el aumento de la fuerza femenina como uno de los importantes aspectos de la nuestra compleja realidad.

Además, eso reforza la importancia de la igualdad de género, llevando el problema además de multiculturalismo.

Como futuros expertos que trabajarán en qualquier ambiente internacional, es necesario adquirir abilidades que abrazan la diversidad y heterogeneidad de las culturas. Monika Altmaier, Directora de los Recursos Humanos por FAO, invitada especial de la ceremonia inaugural, remarca “Reforzar la abilidad de trabajar allá de las fronteras es el primero paso para el progreso social.

La lección más importante que aprendí trabajando en UN es de respetar otras culturas, trabajar como los jugadores de un equipo y ayudar los otros”.

A través de un mosaico cultural, los estudiantes tendrán una oportunidad única de conocer la realidad cotidiana, la facilidad y la dificultad de trabajar in un contexto multiculural, entendiendo las diferencias como el piloto de un justo futuro para todos.

On the morning of March 24th 2018 the ‘password’ at the LUISS University in Rome is for sure ‘multiculturalism’. The entrance is swarmed with people from multiple nationalities, chatting together and getting to know each other. One of those who really stands out from the mass is Jorge Alejandro Gonzalez Galicia, a 23-year-old economics student which, after years of attendance as participant, this time is going to fulfill the role of General Secretary of the RomeMUN. This event is Europe’s largest diplomatic simulation of the United Nations, where delegates from around the world meet and discuss about current international issues, with the aim of finding effective solutions to tackle these problems.

According to Jorge, the RomeMUN offers many young and passionate people the possibility to learn how to express themselves in public and how to debate, no matter how many mistakes they might do. Asked to give some advices to people wanting to pursue an international career; in fact, he suggests not to be afraid of failing, but on the contrary to try as many times as it is needed to achieve the best results.

As most of the people present at the opening ceremony, I particularly enjoyed the speech he gave, dressed in the traditional Mexican costume of the mariachi, talking loudly and moving his hands convulsively. He infected everyone with his charisma, at the same time being able to deliver meaningful and inspiring messages. First of all, Jorge explained what the terms inter- and multicultural signify for him; according to him, having a multicultural approach means being capable of travelling around the world, getting to know people from all over the globe, learning as much languages as possible, without however forgetting the place one comes from. As he himself admits, being dressed in the traditional costume of his country of origin is a way to honour his roots. He takes part in this Festival not only as a young person who wants to live an international experience and motivate other people to do the same; he is also in charge of proudly representing the country he comes from and of being the spokesperson of his compatriots. As Marcus Garvey once told: “A people without the knowledge of their past history […] is like a tree without roots”. Jorge Alejandro Gonzalez Galicia seems deeply believing in this quote. He is a living example of this way of behaving and he invites all of us to cross our mental boundaries and explore the unknown only after having gained the full knowledge of our origins. This is the unique way we have to really make a change in the world we live in.

Russian Translation of Jorge Alejandro Gonzalez Galicia speech


Я одет в национальную одежду Мексики. И вы знаете? Неважно насколько далеко я от Мексики – я принадлежу Мексике. И ее частичка всегда в моей душе. Даже тот факт, что я покинул свою страну. не меняет этого.

И это то, для чего мы все здесь собрались, потому что я вполне уверен, что вы все гордитесь своей нацией точно также, как я горжусь своей. Неважно, из Италии вы, из Африки, из Океании или Америки, Латинской Америки, Северной Америки или из любой другой страны. Я знаю, что вы, как и я, гордитесь своими корнями, своим происхождением и своей нацией. Это нормально любить свою нацию, свои корни. Что ненормально – это пытаться изменить любовь других людей к своему государству. Если я хочу завоевать мир, я должен дать лучшее миру от своей страны. Я не должен пытаться завоевать другие страны своими идеями. Я должен уважать и интересоваться другими языками и религиями.

Это значит быть настоящим патриотом: любить свою страну и дать миру лучшее от своей страны.

Я считаю, что не просто принадлежу к одной нации, я человек мира. Мы все живем вместе на этой планете. Наш генетический код совпадает на 99,96 процентов, и это то, что рушит любые границы, стоит над происхождением и идентичностью. Это то, что заложено глубоко в нас. И это то, что мы должны помнить как представители человечества. И да, у нас у всех могут быть разные взгляды, но мы все братья и сестры на планете Земля.

И мы должны уважать это и должны сражаться за наших собратьев, у которых нет тех же возможностей, что и у нас. Я думаю у всех здесь присутствующих есть лучший шанс на жизнь. Если вы посмотрите на своего соседа, вы увидите в нем нечто больше чем национальность – вы увидите в нем ЧЕЛОВЕКА, что-то, что роднит вас - за что вы можете сражаться, за права людей, которые не могут говорить, не могут читать или писать.

Делегаты, преподаватели, послы, все присутствующие: добро пожаловать на International Career Festival 2018. И я вам сейчас скажу правду, которая может вам в начале не понравиться, но в конце вы все поймете. Вы не станете здесь богачами, эта конференция не имеет никакой политической поддержки, но что-то очень важное останется у вас в голове. Потому что вы знаете, что есть люди в этом мире, которые нуждаются в вас, и вы будете сражаться за это, и это самое лучшее, что дает это мероприятие: понимание, что есть за что сражаться, потому что множество людей, которые не могут сделать это сами, и мы должны помочь им в этом. И даже если вы попытаетесь забыть это – вы не сможете. Потому что раз есть люди, за которых нужно сражаться- есть смысл менять эту реальность.

Finally, the demanding projects and exams that need to be assessed, lead students to do their best and exceed their own expectations. For all these reasons and much more, I am proud to have been a BHMS’s student.  After my graduation from the Msc program, I easily found a job as Receptionist in Switzerland. Despite my interest in this Country, I decided to temporarily move in Gran Canary where I am currently working as Assistant in the Sales department. It is unnecessary to say that the BHMS School gave me the opportunity to obtain the knowledge that nowadays is required in the Business reality”.

Luca Paradisi completed BHMS/Culinary Arts

"My experience in BHMS was great: the structure of the study plan fits perfectly with my way of studying. The theoretical lessons, having four weeks of lessons and one of exams, in my opinion, helped the studying process because it didn’t let cumulate all the theory helping to focalize on any point of the program. The practical lessons were structured very well, the students weren’t to many so it was easy to follow the lesson and the teacher was always available to answer at the questions. My internship experience was amazing because I was in a 5 star hotel with two young but very well prepared chefs, both with a long experience in Michelin star restaurants, I learned a lot because even if I was a student at the first experience they let me work, after a couple of months, during the service at the garde manger and than at the pasta section. During the last six months I learned a lot: about how to live in the kitchen and how to cook."

Organisation: Alkarama is a Geneva-based non-governmental human rights organisation established in 2004 to assist all those in the Arab world subjected to or at risk of extrajudicial execution, enforced disappearance, torture, and arbitrary detention. Acting as a bridge between individual victims and international human rights mechanisms, Alkarama works towards an Arab world where all individuals live in freedom and dignity, and are protected by the rule of law. Alkarama brings pro bono legal assistance to victims of the most serious human rights violations, without any discrimination. The organisation focuses its efforts on violations of the right to life, human dignity, physical integrity and freedoms such as extrajudicial executions, enforced disappearances, torture, and arbitrary detention. Using the international human rights mechanisms and working closely with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR ), Alkarama documents individual cases of violations through direct contact with the victims, their families or lawyers, and submits complaints on their behalf to the United Nations (UN) Special Procedures and Treaty Bodies, asking them to intervene with the State in question to put an end to these violations. Alkarama also brings media attention to the cases and situations it covers, helping victims to have their voices heard and shedding light on the human rights situation of a country, through press releases as well as public reports and analyses published in various media outlets. In order to reach a broader audience, Alkarama increasingly relies on social media, particularly Twitter and Facebook.
