Consules has been promoting the MUN culture ever since its foundation. To this end, Consules provides, in collaboration with some of the principal Italian and international research centers, simulations of the United Nations and of the main international organizations.
In conjunction with the above, Consules arranges for participants to take part in the major UN simulation projects in existence, reserved for university and middle-high school students.
Consules participates in the network of the principal international institutions that promote peaceful coexistence and civil progress.
It represents Italy in the United Nations Youth Associations Network (UNYANET).

Simulations and Model United Nations
The simulations entail the creation of a real or hypothetical scenario, within which a negotiation is held.
The participants take on the role of the principal actors within the negotiation, representing their values and interests. The simulations are directed at a vast array of figures: students, managers, entrepreneurs and representatives of the public sector, the Armed Forces and Police Corps. The simulations represent an innovative tool to assimilate knowledge of various issues, improve leadership skills and the ability to work in a team, strengthen negotiation skills, acquire a strategic overview and orientate with regard to future choices.
The Model United Nations (MUN) is a simulation of the United Nations work sessions.
There are various types of MUN, created to satisfy the practical educational needs of a range of individuals: students, professionals and managers in the private sector and members of the Armed Forces. However, all MUNs have certain common goals:
- To provide a deeper understanding of multilateral diplomacy;
- To strengthen negotiating and leadership skills;
- To improve the ability to anticipate evolving scenarios of complex issues.
Participants are required to act like real UN delegates partaking in sessions of various UN committees. Each participant in a committee represents a different country. The delegate has to work, faithfully respecting the assigned country’s standpoint, to obtain the approval of documents that favor the assigned country and the collective interest.
