Rotaract Global Model United Nations
International Youth Conference
Rotaract Global Model United Nations is a grassroot initiative initiated in 2013 by Rotaractors from all around the world. Every year a new edition is organised in a different country that is hosted by a local Rotaract Club selected after an open competition. The conference seeks the participation of anyone over 18 years old and it is aimed at young professionals. We are very grateful for the recognition and support offered by Rotary International and partner Rotary Clubs over the years at each edition.
Rotary’s relationship with the United Nations dates back to 1945 when some 49 Rotary members acted as delegates, advisors and consultants at the United Nations Charter Conference. Today, Rotary holds the highest consultative status possible with the United Nations as a non-governmental organization. Rotary and the United Nations have a long history of working together and sharing similar visions for a more peaceful world.
Our initiative follows on these footsteps and has been exceptionally successful in bringing Rotaractors together across the globe to address current and emerging issues that affect our generation.
Rotaract Global Model United Nations
brings a new vision to the MUN Network
Rotaract MUN Mission
Our mission is to promote and encourage awareness, understanding, tolerance and acceptance of different people, cultures, beliefs and attitudes by organizing, sponsoring and promoting Model United Nations conferences and other international events. We believe that people’s involvement at all levels of decision making (local, national and global) is essential in order to achieve the goals of the United Nations.
Together we are building an international Youth Decision Making Body where the voice of youth is heard worldwide.
Rotary in Action simulating the United Nations with the participation of young professionals from around the globe. A true global family.
Rotaract MUN Vision
By simulating the United Nations, we encourage knowledge of international affairs, research, understanding of parliamentary procedures, analytical reasoning, problem solving, professionalism in negotiation, oral and written presentation of ideas, etc. By working together as a team, drawing from the past and present, we are preparing youth for the future and we empower them to be a part of decision making at all levels.
Rotaract Global Model United Nations transcends from a mere simulation to an actual youth decision-making process. It goes beyond a simple conference and ensure that the outcomes of your discussions and debates are presented, edited and transmitted in a clear and concise manner to the regional and international decision-making bodies (such as EU and UN) and the world at large. Through this novel and innovative approach, Rotaract Global Model United Nations brings a new vision to the MUN Network and to the other conferences of this type.
