What is a Model United Nations
The Model UN training programs are designed to teach students how the United Nations work. Participants represent the UN member countries in a simulation game by playing the diplomatic debates in a UN committees. The purpose of this experience-based program is to find common and effective solutions on the issues in the agenda by signing and approving a number of resolutions.
Italian students are becoming familiar with Model UN programmes only recently, in particular RomeMUN has become one of the biggest UN simulations in the world even if the first edition was launched only 4 years ago.
The next edition of RomeMUN will be held in March 2015 in the wonderful city of Rome. The conference
was born on the idea of bringing hundreds of students from around the world into the cradle of Western
democracy, but also with the awareness that they must foster a closer relationship between civil society
and international institutions, in particular a greater involvement of young people in global issues. In the
2015 Edition participants can also take part as journalists of the most relevant worldwide networks or as
translators. RomeMUN delegates will work in different committees and agencies of the United Nations
related to the general theme: “FEEDING THE PLANET, ENERGY FOR LIFE". More info on
specific topics and committee will be published soon.
