Open Working Group

YOUTH FOR FSN


This Open Working Group was established in May 2015 and has has the purpose to facilitate youth participation to the Committee on World Food Security of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Since its establishment, it has facilitated the participation to CFS negotiations and plenary sessions of both undergraduate and graduate students from all over the world and has established a solid presence within the Civil Society Mechanism. This Working Group is open to both university students and young professionals who wish to get involved in the ongoing discussions on Food Security and Nutrition globally.

Model United Nations

ETERNAL MUN


This Model United Nations is hosted by the American University of Rome and aims at high-quality debates. For this reason, the seats for this special Model UN are extremely limited. Nevertheless, Eternal MUN - or EMUN - is a challenging learning experience that provides in-depth discussions on high-priority items on the international agenda. EMUN is a rare occasion to experience a truly international environment in the heart of the eternal city, Rome. In addition, EMUN is always hosting high-level internationa speakers from the many international institutions that Rome hosts, hence it is the perfect chance to ask questions regarding the current international issues at hand.

Model European Union

ROME MEU


 MUN Academy has started a project to promote the EU principles and values amongst universities. Rome Model European Union (RoMEU) offers its participants to debate and negotiate simulating one of the EU institutions right in the city where the European journey started. RoMEU is a unique type of simulation because it can be easily organised within your university with MUN Academy support and coordination. RoMEU wishes to offer not just a simple simulation experience but also a learning opportunity within university courses to practice soft skills not  taught in any programme very often. Contact MUN Academy to discuss more in details on how you can bring RoMEU in your class.

Local Youth Participation

YOUTH COUNCIL OF ROME

MUN Academy is strongly committed to actively participate to the workings of this Council, this providing another occasion for young people to influcence and express their opinions on matters of their interest.
