At its 10th edition, the International Careers Festival promises to be one of the most important international events in Rome in 2019, involving brilliant students ready to challenge each other in exciting simulations. Are you curious to find out what is the ICF all about? Read the experiences of those who have already participated in previous editions and cannot wait to get back on the game for this extraordinary 10th anniversary!
For many, the International Careers Festival is a unique opportunity to get involved and put into practice their academic knowledge. This is the case of Luca De Cristofaro, 22-year-old Italian-Brazilian student of International Relations at the Orientale University of Naples. Luca has already taken part to the RomeMUN 2018 and this year is also involved in promoting the event among his colleagues. "The RomeMUN? It's a bit like being at the Simulation Olympics, competing with participants from all over the world, with different backgrounds and cultures". Not only that, it is also an opportunity to refine both diplomatic and personal skills, "I have a fantastic relationship with one of the delegates with whom I had the most heated debates and I cannot wait to see her again at RomeMUN 2019!" Luca said.
The ICF has been a stimulating and revealing experience also for Francesco Merendino, a 21-year-old Sicilian student enrolled in the Faculty of Law of the University of Messina who sees his future in the international market. According to Francesco, the Festival is one of the best possible arenas to prepare for tomorrow's work challenges, although the greatest challenge is with oneself: "in a globalized world, if you want to emerge from the mass, you always need to test your own level!". But the Festival is also an experience that leaves a deep mark, "when I came home, I felt downsized: being in contact with peers from all over the world opened my mind, made me realize that many of my certainties did not have solid foundations: it was a great stimulus for me"
Finally, there are those who will participate in the Festival for the first time and are excited to meet other students coming from all over the world to take part in intense days of simulations, workshops, seminars and debates. This is the case, for example, with Úrsula and Yasmin, 19 and 20-year-old Brazilian students the University of Lisbon School af Law. Together with many other students from Portugal, they will represent their university at the Festival. For them, the Festival is a starting point to discover the different possibilities offered by the world of international careers and to get to know the points of view of their international peers about possible solutions to face the conflicts and challenges of our century. Both determined to pursue a career in the field of international law, they are enthusiastic about being part of such a big event "I believe the world is everyday walking towards unification and integration between nations, and I’d be glad to help that happen" Úrsula said.

This year, the International Careers Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary, confirming a successful record of this international event which allows young students from all over the world to challenge themselves and to live a unique experience in the charming Italian city of Rome. Such a remarkable success would not have been possible without the enthusiasm and the commitment of the dynamic youth that work behind the scene of the ICF. We have met some of the key figures that contribute to the realization of the four projects of the Festival: the RomeMUN, the Press Game, the Business Game and the International Careers Course. Here are their stories and their advice for a successful international career.
Luca Marco Giraldin von Lahnstein –Business Game Director, Executive Committee
Successful entrepreneur in the Food and Luxury sector and with professional experience in marketing, managerial and strategic consulting, Luca Marco is the creator and director of the Business Game, as well as a member of the Executive Committee of the International Careers Festival. His collaboration with GnM began in 2011 and since then his contribution has become more and more concrete, coming to the design of the Business Game that this year will see its third edition. Luca in fact wanted to bring his experience within the festival to help young people interested in following a professional path in the business area to understand how "to have the freedom to choose their own future, to realize it according to their ambitions, with courage, dedication and receiving adequate gratifications. This is success" What is the reason for including the Business Game within the Festival? Because in an increasingly international and competitive reality, young people cannot limit themselves to academic knowledge but need to develop soft skills, better if in an association like the GnM. Today Luca continues his entrepreneurial adventure thanks to a new challenge in the United States with the launch of the "Patavini" brand, a food boutique and a laboratory for the production of fresh pasta in the heart of New York. The secret that made his initiative competitive? An in-depth analysis of the American market in the field of food production and distribution, together with a correct positioning in the distribution channels and a constant tension towards excellence. If you want to acquire these competences, the Business Game is the right opportunity for you, apply here!
Jorge Alejandro González Galicia - Deputy Director
Jorge is a young professional of Mexican-Guatemalan origins who has participated for many years at the International Careers Festival and this year will play the role of Deputy Director. Excellent communicator, his biggest dream is to give voice to his ideas to create a positive impact in society. The reason that motivated Jorge to join the GnM team is "the opportunity that represents an organization like GnM: connecting young people through the power of dialogue and diplomacy". Over the years, GnM has allowed him to get in touch with thousands of people from all over the world who, like him, are determined to overcome contemporary global challenges. Jorge told to us that he traveled a lot more with his new international friends than he ever did with his fellow students or his colleagues, "it's funny because you would never imagine that someone living more than 100 kilometers away from you can share so much with you, and in so many different ways ". Do you share his same aspirations? Take part to the 10th edition of the Festival, apply here!
Alina Barsamyan - Under Secretary General RomeMUN
Alina Barsamyan is a girl of Armenian origin who has lived abroad since the age of 7 and this year will serve as Under Secretary General of RomeMUN. Student of International Relations at King's College London, as Jorge also Alina has participated in many editions of the Festival and she looks forward to seeing the tenth edition that already promises to be "biggest and better than ever". Alina told us that this year the MUN Secretariat has worked hard to include new committees and controversial topics "We hope to ensure that the delegates collect the best possible memories from this anniversary edition and keep returning as we have in the past", she added. The strength of the RomeMUN Secretariat is the multiculturalism that contributes to making the Festival truly international. "In an era of rapid globalization, we must take into account how extremely interconnected we are, irrespective of global disposition.” This is why a successful MUN must celebrate diversity in all its forms and make use of differences to educate on new cultures, traditions and lifestyles. Do you want to join this multicultural team? Apply here!
Shanthi Kodituwakku - Press Game Program Director
Multiculturalism is also the word that best describes Shanthi, the Press Game Program Director. Shanti has mixed Italian-Sri Lankan origin but she has always felt to belong to the whole world rather than to a single culture. Before arriving in Messina, where she works for a web radio, Shanthi has traveled to England, Italy, India, Sri Lanka and Mexico, living in contact with different cultures. From this experience Shanthi realized that she wanted to give voice to what she had seen. For this reason, she decided to study journalism and join the GnM team choosing the path offered by the Press Game. "Following a course of study based on journalism and communication, the Press Game was immediately the project that I felt most suitable for me," Shanthi told us. The fundamental value of the Festival, according to Shanthi, is to fill the gap existing in Italy between universities and the professional world: "Universities should act as a bridge bringing young people to the world of work, but if this is true for a few universities, it remains a utopia for others ". In a globalized world, it would be impossible to imagine life without information... or the Festival without the Press Game! Do you agree? Then apply now and bring your voice to the ICF!
Ebenezer Essilfie-Nyame - Scientific Committee
Ebenezer is a young professional who works with the FAO Regional Office for Africa and is a member of the Festival's scientific committee. According to his experience, to understand what is your best way within the vast world of international careers it is important to follow your passions, specialize in a field and dedicate your with commitment to refine your own skills. The International Careers Festival is the best platform to explore different career paths in a multicultural environment. "Through the ICF, participants are taught fundamentals of diplomacy, public speaking, marketing, leadership, and negotiation. Additionally, through the mentoring from highly accomplished individuals and diplomats, participants are not only able to network with over 100 different nationalities, they also have the opportunity to learn from highly experienced experts in the field of international relations". Ebenezer also told us about the importance of the Festival for young people coming from African countries, an internationally reputable event that offers young talents from its continent the opportunity to be known and to cultivate the fundamental values of the Festival for those who could be leaders of African institutions in the next few years.
The Rome Press Game particularly is the project entirely dedicated to the world of journalism, international communication, and interpretation and translation.

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.

Dear delegates, young leaders and munners from all around the world,
Cheers from mexico!
It is an honor for me to invite you to be part of the ninth edition of the Rome Model of United Nations, which is one of the biggest un simulations around Europe and the world.
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. My team and i will be at your service in order to assure you a unique experience.

All participants had also the opportunity to listen to the speech of the Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs Deputy Political Director Francesca Tardioli. The ceremony started with a street music band's show of the “Banda Garibaldina di Poggio Mirteto who played as first song the hymn of Mameli. «It was a great ceremony – says Valentina Di Bari, one of the member of “Rome Press Game” - even if longer than we thought. Probably was a bit difficult to follow each speaker all the time. In general there was lot of enthusiasm all over the auditorium. The most important thing that we understand is how many creativity and innovation there are behind the job you love». The participants asked several interesting things to understand better the speakers' skills and their job. One of the suggestions was to discover “who you are” in order to feel “who you want become”.
