Taste the complexity of international relations!

Dear friends, it is my great pleasure to introduce you RomeMUN 2012 program organized each year in Rome, Italy!!! RomeMUN is an international conference which attracts each year hundreds of international students from all over the world, enjoying a great conference on rural poverty-food security, sustainability and visiting one of the most ancient and beautiful cities in the world.

Last year I attended it as a participant and strongly recommend you to apply! It’s not only a great chance to visit one of the beautiful capitals of Europe, but also meet active and interesting young people not only from Europe, but from all over the world.

Model UN conference really gives a person huge experience, knowledge and skills. Many years ago, I participated in a small regional UN conference and it totally changed my life. 

Applications for RomeMUN 2012 are now open! Fill in the application form on our website and experience MUN world! RomeMUN will be held from 19 to 23 March 2012 in Rome, Italy. Many scholarships and financial aids are available for International Students. 


Our dream to turn Rome in one of the most important reference point for Model United Nations conferences goes on! After the amazing experience of RomeMUN 2011 with hundreds of students coming from 28 different countries around the world, Giovani nel Mondo association presents the third edition of Rome Model United Nations: the biggest international Model UN conference in Italy.

RomeMUN 2012 will be hosted in UN buildings and university structures based in Rome.

The current world economic crisis has deepened social inequalities between rich and poor countries and urban and rural areas, giving rise to higher numbers of hungry and vulnerable people in the world. The crisis is a consequence of a world economy largely dominated by financial interests that are driven primarily by short-term profitability as the main criterion to measure effective corporate performance. The economic and financial crisis has also produced a crisis of social values marked by uncertainty and a loss of confidence in the future. Starting from this perspective it is necessary that the international community rethinks the priorities for the future and fights for a sustainable and effective business model in order to achieve a more balanced economy, more growth with more equity and a form of development able to focus not only on profit but also on values, rights and liberties.

This is why it is our research committee gladly announces that the 2012 mission of RomeMUN will be: “NEW IMAGES FOR OUR FUTURE: DEVELOPMENT-RESOURCES-COOPERATION”

Issues about social development, sustainability, nuclear disarmament, sustainable energy, gender equality, and greater market access, technology transfer to developing countries, strengthening disaster preparedness in the agricultural sector, water and irrigation management will be some of the topics under discussion during the five-days of simulation of the General Assembly and its sub-committees on next March.
