Background

RotaractMUN at UN 2

RotaractMUN 2016, New York, UNHQ

Rotaract Global Model United Nations  is not just a simulation of the UN process but transcends into an actual decision–making process. We provide a platform where young professionals, University students, youths with a passion for change, Rotaractors and Rotarians, the world over, can share their voice on global issues. Every year, we take the decision–making process to a different country and it is organized by a different Rotaract Club. If you are a Rotaract Club interested in this project you can become the next organiser of this prestigious conference in your home town.

Since 2013, we have held successful International youth conferences in Romania, United Kingdom, Serbia, USA, Bulgaria and Lebanon. Please see our history page for more information about our previous editions. Only Rotaract Clubs charted by Rotary International may apply to organise this conference. Also read this short description about RotaractMUN or use it to prepare your application.

If you want to attend the RotaractMUN conference as a participant, please visit the webpage of the upcoming edition and register there.

Selection process

RotaractMUN Belgrade

RotaractMUN 2015, Serbia

The best application is selected by the RotaractMUN Executive Committee.  Please see that section on our website for more details of the factors involved in the selection as well as the members of the Committee.

Deadline for applications is 26th October every year. This gives the committee enough time to carry out a transparent evaluation process with enough time to announce the next edition of RotaractMUN at the Rotary International UN Day in New York (this year in Geneva). This happened during the first 2 weeks of November. Therefore, we strongly encourage all applicants to submit their applications well before the date to be eligible for the upcoming selection.

Other aspects

RotaractMUN UK

RotaractMUN 2014, London

We encourage prospective Rotaract Clubs wanting to organise future editions to attend the upcoming RotaractMUN conferences so that you can have a direct experience of what it means to organise such an event, meet with existing organisers, exchange ideas as well as network and promote your candidacy. This does not affect or in any way influence the selection process. However, it will improve your understanding of this project and your chances to submit a convincing application.

Once selected you will benefit from the close support and guidance of the RotaractMUN Executive Committee that includes the founders of the conference as well as Project Managers and Secretary Generals from the previous editions. Their skills and expertise will be provided to you to ensure a successful edition in your country.

For any questions about the application process, please do not hesitate to contact us.
