Florence Model United Nations

Internationally-minded, uniquely Florentine

FloMUN is organised by a small team of students from the International School of Florence that is putting into practice the school's vision of building "communities of creative makers and doers" by organizing the city's and school's first-ever interscholastic Model United Nations Conference. FloMUN, short for Florence Model United Nations, will bring together students from various schools in Florence, Italy, and Europe with the goal of discussing, debating, and writing resolutions to tackle the globe's most pressing social, political, and economic issues. In the spirit of a true "laboratory for learning", students will descend upon Florence's iconic Ospedale degli Innocenti to examine ideas that challenge their own and make connections between what their subject area studies and the world that awaits them outside the classroom.


To sign up for the conference go on the official website.
