Il Rome Model United Nations (RomeMUN) è la più grande simulazione diplomatica delle Nazioni Unite in Europa e una delle più prestigiose al mondo. Arrivata ormai alla sua 10a edizione a Roma e patrocinata dalle principali istituzioni internazionali, la simulazione ospiterà circa 1500 delegati provenienti da ben 100 paesi diversi al mondo che insieme ad ospiti d’eccezione, ambasciatori e funzionari dell’ONU, discuteranno degli Obiettivi di Sviluppo Sostenibile delle Nazioni Unite. La simulazione sarà suddivisa in 7 diversi comitati dall’Assemblea Generale, al Consiglio di Sicurezza passando per le agenzie specializzate.
Per l’edizione 2019 avrai l’occasione di selezionare direttamente il Comitato e il Paese che vuoi rappresentare! Iscriviti ora qui
Scopo di questo experience – based program è trovare soluzioni comuni ed efficaci sui temi in agenda attraverso la stipula e l'approvazione di un certo numero di risoluzioni. Il progetto si svolge in modalità learning by doing e consente di acquisire numerose competenze pratiche, come il public speaking, grazie ai numerosi discorsi ufficiali che i delegati devono tenere in pubblico, la capacità di redigere documenti ufficiali internazionali come i position paper e le risoluzioni delle Nazioni Unite; il team building favorito dal lavoro di gruppo con altri delegati per trovare delle soluzioni comuni, la capacità di leadership nel guidare blocchi di nazioni su una posizione comune e condivisa, oltre che capacità di ricerca, sia nella fase preparatoria sia durante la simulazione, e di adattamento in un contesto multiculturale data l’elevata varietà dei partecipanti che provengono da circa 100 diversi paesi al mondo.
Il RomeMUN pur essendo una simulazione piuttosto recente è ormai molto conosciuta a livello internazionale il che spiega l’alto volume di domande ricevute e l’alto profilo dei partecipanti coinvolti, oltre 10.000 le application ricevute all’anno per i 1500 posti disponibili. Alcune le caratteristiche che distinguono il RomeMUN da altre simulazioni similari: un numero cospicuo di borse di studio disponibili, ben 250 per l’edizione 2019 per i candidati più meritevoli, l’exchange program che nasce dalla collaborazione con decine di altri MUN nel mondo e che consente di mettere in palio per i migliori delegati la possibilità di partecipare ad altri MUN in formula gratuita in meravigliose destinazioni in giro per il mondo, il supporto fondamentale di prestigiosi enti istituzionali e internazionali che negli anni hanno patrocinato l’evento tra cui: FAO, IFAD, Programma Alimentare Mondiale delle Nazioni Unite, UNICEF, Commissione Europea, Ministero Affari Esteri, Presidenza del Consiglio dei Ministri, coinvolgimento di centinaia di associazioni internazionali e di numerosissimi enti di formazione e ONG tra gli altri ricordiamo BABBEL, Università degli Studi Internazionali di Roma, ONE, l’Unione Forense per i Diritti Umani e ITC-ILO. Fondamentale è anche la partnership con decine di università sia italiane che straniere che informano gli studenti sul progetto e che spesso riconoscono loro dei crediti formativi per l’attività svolta e ultima ma non meno importante la possibilità di contare su uno staff di oltre 300 volontari presenti in circa 100 paesi al mondo.
Il Rome Model United Nations nell’arco di questi anni ha coinvolto circa 10.000 studenti che si sono susseguiti nelle varie commissioni simulate e ben 2.000 ragazzi che hanno lavorato come staff. Tantissime le personalità coinvolte a vario titolo negli anni, dall’Inviato ONU per i Giovani Ahmad Alhendawi, al Direttore Generale della FAO Graziano Da Silva, all’ex Ministro degli Esteri Giulio Terzi Sant’Agata, Franco Frattini, Staffan De Mistura, sino a personaggi del mondo dello spettacolo vicini al mondo Nazioni Unite come Albano Carrisi Ambasciatore di Buona Volontà della FAO.
"Il RomeMUN non è solo un'altra conferenza per i giovani, costituisce anche la possibilità di sperimentare, in un ambiente multiculturale, come realmente funzioni la politica e come sia possibile cambiare il proprio futuro con piccoli sforzi, tolleranza e ascolto reciproco. Se ti perdi qualcosa all'università e vuoi essere uno step avanti nella tua carriera internazionale, RomeMUN è sicuramente il posto giusto. ", afferma Pablo Sánchez Rodríguez, Segretario Generale del RomeMUN, che per l’edizione 2019 sarà assistito da un team che si arricchisce anche della competenza e dell’esperienza di Alina Barsamyan, Sottosegretario Generale per la parte accademica, Hamza Naeem, Sottosegretario Generale di Presidenza e Antonio Attolico, Sottosegretario Generale per le Relazioni Esterne.
La simulazione è destinata a tutti gli studenti o neolaureati entro un anno dal conseguimento del titolo di laurea i quali abbiano superato con successo il test di lingua inglese previsto per la selezione e versato la quota di partecipazione, le informazioni su quote di adesione, requisiti di accesso e borse di studio sono disponibili qui.
Le iscrizioni al progetto sono aperte sul portale di riferimento.
Il RomeMUN avrà luogo dal 9 al 12 marzo 2019 nella cornice del Festival delle Carriere Internazionali ed è organizzato dall’associazione Giovani nel Mondo, la stessa associazione che ha anche creato il noto portale www.carriereinternazionali.com e che favorisce, grazie al suo impegno, l’ingresso dei giovani nel mondo del lavoro delle organizzazioni internazionali.
I partecipanti al RomeMUN dunque oltre alla simulazione hanno l’opportunità di entrare in contatto con organizzazioni internazionali, lasciare il proprio cv e fare colloqui di orientamento e recruiting.
Infine per festeggiare il decimo anniversario Giovani nel Mondo ha deciso di offrire ai propri soci un'opportunità ulteriore ovvero la possibilità di seguire un percorso di formazione dal vivo pre-conferenza. Si tratterà di una serie di incontri di approfondimento sia sull'aspetto pratico-procedurale dell'evento che sulle carriere internazionali in genere così da rendere maggiormente consapevoli i partecipanti e dunque meglio pronti ad affrontare con soddisfazione l'esperienza finale di partecipazione al Festival.
Questo percorso di formazione si terrà inoltre all'interno di una cornice unica: la bellissima nave Costa Diadema, grazie alla partnership con la società Costa Crociere. Trattandosi di un Festival delle Carriere Internazionali GnM ha deciso di proporre un viaggio tra alcune delle città più belle del mediterraneo nella settimana antecedente al Festival. Durante la settimana di viaggio sarà possibile partecipare ogni giorno ad una sessione di 3 ore di preparazione strutturata ad hoc per l'evento conclusivo del Festival. Inoltre i partecipanti avranno la possibilità di vivere gli innumerevoli servizi offerti da Costa Diadema e visitare città meravigliose come: Savona-Marsiglia-Barcellona-Palma de Maiorca e Palermo, tutte destinazioni che nei secoli sono state teatro di scambio di culture, tradizioni, storia, commercio e collaborazioni tra stati e nazioni diverse.
Per la prima volta dunque il Festival si fa itinerante e oltre all'esperienza romana i partecipanti interessati potranno aderire anche alla settimana di formazione-viaggio pre-evento.

A model of United Nations goes beyond a simple political simulation since it is a way to show young people around the world that someone, somewhere , needs them. In today’s society we need active changemakers who can understand that the privilege of having an education should be used to give chances and life opportunities to those who are born in difficult situations, also, we need to meet young leaders like us from all around the world in order to create a global network of leaders that can act together to fight the challenges of the 21st century.
In my 4 years of experience at romemun i have realized that our conference is not only enriched by the debates, but also by dialogue, social events, worlwide networking, and by the International Careers Festival which offers our delegates the chance to expand their academic experiences throught Europe and the whole planet.
I invite you to give us a chance. A chance to show you that an mun can go beyond the common expectations, that we can connect you with other leaders and dreamers from other continents, to let us expand your horizons, and to have fun while being a real changemaker.
