RomeMUN, despite being a fairly recent simulation, is now well known all around the world, which explains the high volume of applications received and the high-level of the participants involved, over 10,000 applications received per year for the 1500 available places. What distinguish RomeMUN from other similar simulations? A large number of scholarships available, as many as 250 for the 2019 edition for the most deserving candidates, the exchange program born from the collaboration with dozens of other MUNs in the world and that allows to give away for the best delegates the opportunity to participate in other MUNs in free formula in wonderful destinations around the world, plus the fundamental support of prestigious institutional and international bodies that over the years have sponsored the event including: FAO, IFAD, World Food Program, UNICEF, European Commission,  Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Presidency of the Council of Ministers, involvement of hundreds of international associations and numerous training institutions and NGOs among others include Wall Street English, Università degli Studi Internazionali di Roma, ONE, Unione Forense per la tutela dei Diritti Umani and ITC- ILO. Essential is also the partnership with many Italian and foreign universities that inform students about the project.They often acknowledge course credits for their activities and last but not least the possibility of counting on a staff of over 300 volunteers.

Over the years, the Rome Model United Nations has involved about 10,000 students who have followed each other in the various simulated commissions and as many as 2,000 young people who have worked as staff. Many personalities took an active role such as: the UN Envoy to the Youth Ahmad Alhendawi, the Director General of FAO Graziano Da Silva, the former Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi Sant'Agata, Franco Frattini, Staffan De Mistura, and celebrities from the show business close to the UN world as Albano Carrisi Goodwill Ambassador of FAO.

“RomeMUN is not only another conference for young people, it is the possibility to experience on an enriching multicultural environment how politics work in reality and how it is possible to change your future with effort, tolerance and listening to each other. If you miss something at university and you want to take a step forward in your international career, RomeMUN is definitely the right place to be.” says Pablo Sánchez Rodríguez, current Secretary General of RomeMUN, who for the 2019 edition will be assisted by a team that is also enriched by the expertise and experience of Alina Barsamyan, Undersecretary General for Academics, Hamza Naeem, Under-Secretary-General for Chairing and Antonio Attolico, Under-secretary-General for External Relations

The simulation is intended for all students or new graduates within one year of graduation who have successfully passed the English language test required for the selection and paid the participation fee; information on membership fees, access requirements and scholarships are available here

Registration for the project is open at this webpage

RomeMUN will take place 9th and 8th March 2019 within the International Careers Festival, an event dedicated to students and graduates who are engaged in the international careers sector, organized by the Giovani Nel Mondo Association, the same Association that created the well-known website www.carriereintenazionali.com and which, thanks to its commitment, fosters the entry of young people into the world of work of International Organizations.

RomeMUN participants therefore, in addition to the simulation, have the opportunity to get in touch with international organizations, leave their CV and have the possibility of orientation and recruiting interviews.

Finally, to celebrate the tenth anniversary, Giovani nel Mondo has decided to offer its members a further opportunity, that is to follow a live training course pre-conference. It will be a series of in-depth meetings both on the practical-procedural aspect of the event and on international careers in general, so as to make participants more aware and, therefore, better prepared to face with satisfaction the final experience of participation in the Festival.

This training course will also take place in a unique location: the beautiful Costa Diadema, a Cruise package thanks to the partnership with Costa Crociere. GnM decided to offer a trip to some of the most beautiful cities of the Mediterranean during the week before the Festival, where it will be possible to take part every day in a 3 hour session for a proper preparation for the final event of the Festival. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to experience the countless services offered by Costa Diadema and visit wonderful cities such as: Savona-Marseille-Barcelona-Palma de Mallorca and Palermo, all destinations that over the centuries have been theater of exchange of cultures, traditions, history, trade and collaboration between states and different nations.

For the first time the Festival becomes itinerant and, in addition to the Roman experience, interested participants can also join the pre-event training week.
