cfmunesco 2018

thank you all!

Dear admins, press members, chairs and delegates, 

I would like to thank you with all my heart. 

I couldn't ask for a better performance. 

I had the opportunity to work with a great executive team, allowing me to delegate a lot of work that I could never do just by myself.

I'd like to dedicate some words to my delegates, too. I've seen such high-level skills in English and politics and above all I've seen a lot of effort. In every committee. And this make me incredibly proud of you. 

I hope you've enjoyed this project as much I did. MUNs make us better citizens, well aware of our surroundings.


Remember: CFMUNESCO is not just a simulation, it's training for our future. 


Sincerely, the Secretary General Syria Paoloni

On the 5th October the Secretary General Syria Paoloni, the chair of the UNESCO Committe Anastasia Brusini and Mrs. Adami went to the University of Udine to visit Prof. Grimaz, an expert in risk reduction and in the securing of infrastructures and rebuilding of the damaged ones by natural disasters. Grimaz told them about his trips around the world with the aim of exporting his project in different countries. During the conference the delegates of the UNESCO Committee will have the possibility to meet and speak with Mr. Grimaz, famous all over the world for his experience in this sector!




On the 1st October the chair of the Historical Committee Cecilia Furioso Cenci, the Secretary General Syria Paoloni, Mrs. Chiandotto and Mrs Pettoello went to Redipuglia, important place for our region’s history, to visit the city mayor. Why Redipuglia? What did they do there?


HISTORICAL COMMITTEE “1919 - Time for Peace”

The Historical Committee “1919 - Time for Peace” simulates the League of Nations debates, covering the events from the 1919 Paris Peace Conference to the 1938 Munich Conference. Students do not represent Countries, as in the diplomatic simulations, but the actual historical characters involved in the events on debate. Considering the relevance of the Committee and in order to underline its connection with the territory and with the overall commemorations related with the Centenary of WW1, the Historical Committee debates are hosted by the Town Hall of Cividale del Friuli and the Historical Committee Staff work in cooperation with the Municipalities of Cividale del Friuli and the Regional Committee of the Italian Red Cross. The Historical Committee is the first Committee worldwide dedicated to the First World War in diplomatic simulations for High School students.


United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization - UNESCO

Being the main feature of CFMUNESCO since the beginning, the UNESCO Committee underlines the link with the city of Cividale del Friuli, which is part of the UNESCO Designated Sites since 2011. CFMUNESCO motto itself, “To Protect and Preserve”, comes from the UNESCO principles. The 2018 UNESCO Committee focuses on the themes of “Natural Disasters and Risk Reduction” and “Values Education Through Sport”.



This committee has been structured according to the actual procedures of the International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent. Within CFMUNESCO ICRC, each Country is represented by two delegates from the same school, one representing the Government of the Country itself whereas the other representing the Red Cross or Red Crescent National Society of the same Country. 

Please pay attention to the Country you have been assigned since the two delegates may have two different points of view on the topics on debate, therefore they can act independently from each other. 

This means that:

- during preparation, both delegates have to focus on the positions they are going to represent during the debate (as a State or as a National Society) and they both can work on specific draft clauses or resolutions;

- during lobbying, both delegates can present or sign a draft resolution: the Chairs will remind them to sign the drafts with "Country name" (e.g. "FRANCE"), if representing the State, or with "Country name + NS" (e.g. "FRANCE NS"), if representing the National Society;

- during committee sessions, both delegates can actively take part in the debates by delivering speeches, presenting points and motions etc.

- during voting procedures, both delegates can cast their vote: the Chairs will take note of all the votes.

Since the ICRC is a resolution based committee, we invite all delegates to come to the conference with some draft clauses or with a complete draft resolution, and we recommend them to be willing to cooperate with other delegates.

The ICRC is going to be CFMUNESCO biggest committee, being composed by about 80 delegates. Thanks to the size of the committee and the double representation, the RCRC will be a great opportunity both for experienced delegates and for less experienced ones
