CFMUNESCO 2014 (ITALY) - Model United Nations

It is our pleasure to invite the UNESCO affiliated schools within your Country to the first edition of the Cividale del Friuli Model United Nations (CFMUNESCO), ITALY.

The venue of the CFMUNESCO 2014, Cividale del Friuli, is one of the most picturesque Italian cities and in June 2011 was classified UNESCO World Heritage Site for its cultural, historical and artistic relevance. CFMUNESCO is hosted by the Convitto Nazionale “Paolo Diacono”, which is part of the Italian ASPnet framework and has a long experience in international projects involving Countries from all over the World.

CFMUNESCO consists in three days of intensive debates, from the 13th to the 15th of November 2014, and allows high school students from all over the world to play the role of diplomats, simulating the United Nations’ debates and their universal aim of peace and security. The official language of the Conference is English.

CFMUNESCO is a simulation of five UN committees: the Security Council, the Disarmament and International Security Committee, the United Nations Human Rights Council, the Environment Commission and finally the UNESCO Committee. The last is the special committee of our Conference and was chosen in order to emphasize the link between the city of Cividale and the UNESCO community. This is the reason why all the topics debated during the Conference are under a common denominator, as shown by the main theme of CFMUNESCO, “To Protect and Preserve”, which is one of the main objectives of the United Nations and, particularly, of the UNESCO.

We look forward to the participation of your Country to CFMUNESCO, therefore we kindly ask you to identify active and interested schools within your ASPnet national network and forward them our invitation. We do hope to welcome them in our school in November.
