RotaractMUN – Rotaract International Model United Nations
www.RotaractMUN.org | August 21-25, 2013 | Baia Mare, Romania
What is Model United Nations?
Model United Nations conferences or short MUNs are academic conferences where participants (who during the event are called county representatives and/or delegates) – students, youth workers and/or leaders and young professionals from across the world, assume the role of representing a country and debate in formal sessions current political, social and economic issues. MUNs represent an opportunity to learn how to influence decision making at international level.
What is Rotaract International Model United Nations (www.RotaractMUN.org)?
Following the historical structure of the United Nations mechanism and its procedures, Rotaract International Model United Nations aims to bring young people’s solutions to global problems on the UN desk. To achieve this dream, Rotaract International Model United Nations promotes excellence in education, professionalism in organization and integrity in performance. The event is going to be held between 21st and 25th of August 2013 in the city of Baia Mare, Romania!
Rotaract International Model United Nations 2013 simulates four councils:
The Security Council, Human Rights Council, Economic and Social Council and the Peacebuilding Comission. Depending on the body in which each participant decides to work, different topics of international importance will be discussed and debated based on strict rules of procedures which will be implemented by the Secretariat. Each participant has the possibility to express the views and interests of the country he/she represents. Therefore, besides accumulating strong knowledge of global issues, participants will also master: the art of negotiation, public speaking using the official UN language and using the procedural mechanisms set in motion by the UN.
Rotaract International Model United Nations 2013 transcends from a mere simulation to an actual youth decision-making process. It introduces the concept of Rapporteur Office whose goal is to ensure that the conference outcomes are presented, edited and transmitted in a clear and concise manner to the world and the regional and international decision-making bodies. Through this novel and innovative approach, Rotaract International Model United Nations brings a new vision to the MUN Network and to the other conferences of this type.
Besides the chance to get trained as a young diplomat, Rotaract International Model United Nations grants you the opportunity to explore different cultures and test your interpersonal and intercultural dialogue skills. Participants may come alone, but will discover an ocean of possibilities in establishing friendships with other participants.
Rotaract International Model United Nations 2013 is waiting for young enthusiastic, visionary and selfmotivated people to join the team this August 2013!
