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 from 14th to 18th of March 2015 in the wonderful city of Rome.
The conference was born on the idea of bringing together hundreds of students from around the world into the cradle of Western democracy,
but also with the awareness that they must foster closer relationships between civil society and international institutions,
particularly a greater involvement of young people in global issues. In the 2015 Edition the participants can also take part as journalists of the
most relevant international networks or as official translators of the United Nations official languages
(Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, Spanish).
RomeMUN delegates will work in different committees and Agencies of the United Nations inspired by the
general theme of the Conference:“FEEDING THE PLANET, ENERGY FOR LIFE", which is the same theme of the 2015 EXPO Milano.
For more detailed info on specific topics and committee please visit the RomeMUN 2015 edition
Each Committee will dispose of an agenda of themes that will be discussed by the delegates;
the admitted delegates will have to be prepared about these themes before the conference,
taking into account the didactic materials and the indications that will be provided by the RomeMUN 2015 Organizing Committee.
