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 2014 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 2014 Edition participants can also take part as journalists of the most relevant worldwide networks ( Al-Jazeera, BBC, CNN, France24, Rainews International, Russia Today) or as translators.
RomeMUN delegates will work in different committees and agencies of the United Nations, including: the General Assembly, the Security Council, FAO and other Un agencies. More than 1,500 college students and high school students will be invited and selected through a selection test.
