The Model United Nations is a diplomatic simulation game in which delegates of Member States have to cooperate to find common and effective solutions in order to approve a certain number of resolutions. Learning by doing, which is the key to success of the event, is the main idea underlying the project and RomeMUN is structured to provide candidates with the opportunity to acquire practical skills by experiencing the complex and exciting world of the UN firsthand.
“Empowering Youth Through Dialogue” is the theme which will inspire the RomeMUNers from the 11th to 14th of March 2017 and focuses on the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. In order to achieve this purpose, candidates are divided into seven different committees:
- GENERAL ASSEMBLY – Plenary Session;
- UNHCR – United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees;
- FAO – Food and Agriculture Organization;
- SC – Security Council;
- ECOSOC – Economic and Social Council;
- UNESCO – United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
