PARTNERSHIPS
s
RIMUN has been awarded with the Official
Recognisation of the President of the
Republic of Italy.
PricewaterhouseCoopers sponsors for the
third year the conference, considering its
interest in international and communitarian
initiatives that have a high formative potential
for young students, seen as potential future
consultants. It also allows the diffusion of the
PwC brand among them.
The Italian Presidency of the Council of
Ministers offered its patronization to the
project, seen as an initiative of high cultural,
scientific and social level.
Ktesios S.p.A. collaborated with RIMUN for
the realization of the Christmas Greeting
Cards 2008, emphasizing its role in the
valorisation of young talents.
The Department of Education of the Regione
Lazio saw the project as a chance to develop
the consciousness of “good citizenship”
among young students. In addition it feels it
should encourage the spread of the initiative
to the other schools of the Region.
For the second year, the University LUISS
“Guido Carli” of Rome offers the use of its
Aula Magna for the General Assembly of the
Rome International Model United Nations.
The municipality of Rome patronized our
manifestation offering the use of the Council
Hall “Giulio Cesare” of the Campidoglio. It
feels the project is an important step for the
human and cultural growth of young students
and the whole city.
