Private Audience with Pope Francis
In the Jubilee year, Pope Francis will address WorldMUN participants, future leaders of peace, on the themes of poverty, justice and service. Since his inauguration back in 2013, Pope Francis has pushed world leaders to devote themselves to serving the disadvantaged and to achieving global equality and social justice, promoting an active culture founded on the respect of human rights, interfaith dialogue and environmental protection.
For a whole week more than 2,500 undergrads will be in Rome for such an amazing and participated event. Harvard World Model United Nations (WorldMUN) is the most internationally diverse college-level Model UN conference. Every year 2,500+ university students from over 115 countries attend WorldMUN in a different location around the world. Past locations include Puebla (Mexico), Beijing (China), Belo Horizonte (Brazil), Sharm el-Sheikh (Egypt), Taipei (Taiwan), Singapore, and Vancouver (Canada). Through lively and informed debate, exciting social events, and a unique conference spirit, the WorldMUN experience reaches across cultures to inspire both cooperation and friendship.

The Harvard World MUN is a huge organizational effort entirely run by undergrads. Hosting and putting things together for almost 3k people is indeed an achievement in itself. Participants will debate and negotiate for a full week, and eventually received by Pope Francis. Also, a parade under Harvard insignia and national flags from all over the world will be celebrated at the Coliseum with regional authorities. This is indeed a very special occasion, particularly if you are thinking of your children either they be teenager or in their twenties. Please feel free to join in with your family.
