IMUN

Italian Model
United Nations

The Italian Model United Nations is Europe’s largest UN simulation! You will represent a UN member country and will be required to faithfully respect its values and interests, using the UN rules of procedure. Your goal will be to confront, intervene, mediate a position and cooperate to obtain the approval of documents (the so-called resolutions) that can benefit your country. IMUN is a great cooperative experience, in which you will be confronted in English with the major issues of international politics.

How it takes place IMUN?

You will begin working within your assigned Committee, representing a UN member country. You will be coordinated by the United Network staff, composed of university students with years of experience in conducting simulations, always ready to help and encourage you. At the end of the three days, you will vote on the resolutions adopted by the different commissions in a large plenary session, attended by all the students who took part in the Italian Model United Nations. It is on this occasion that the most deserving students can win an honourable mention: you could be the Best Delegate!

Perché partecipare ad IMUN? Perché oltre alle amicizie che si sono creano, oltre ai director e ad uno staff brillante e qualificato, IMUN mi ha insegnato che ogni persona, ogni singolo Paese, ogni singola placard alzate può fare la differenza per cambiare il mondo.

IMUN ti insegna a cooperare, a scendere a compromessi. Ti consente di capire che anche quei problemi che apperentemente sono distanti, perché dall'altra parte del mondo o perché affliggono altre culture, sono nostri problemi: siamo cittadini del mondo e per questo dobbiamo proteggerlo, mettendoci in gioco in prima persona.

Perché partecipare ad IMUN? Perché ti fa capire che nonostante tutto, hai una voce (e che la voce dell'Angola conta quanto quella degli Stati Uniti). IMUN ti insegna a credere nelle tue idee, a perfezionarle e a difenderle, rispettando le idee degli altri, anche se diverse dalle nostre.
