About the International Careers Festival

The idea to create International Careers Festival was conceived by Giovani nel Mondo, a non-profit association founded in Italy. The goal of the association is promoting and favoring the interaction between the talent, ambition, and brilliance of the youth and the world of international opportunities.

As a result of the RomeMUN project and for the new bilingual website, a unique platform to bridge the gap between young people and work/training opportunities, Giovani nel Mondo is known both in Italy and abroad.

The International Careers Festival is sponsored by major institutions. It includes the Italian Presidency of the Council of Ministers, the Representation in Italy of the European Commission, UN agencies IFAD and the World Food Programme, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Youth Committee UNESCO and Roma Capitale.
