Venice Universities' Model European Union

May 11-13, 2018 Venice International University

This is the 2nd edition of the simulation of the EU legislative procedure, open to university students, jointly organized by VIU - Venice International University, Università Ca' Foscari Venezia and Venice Diplomatic Society (VDS), with the support of

Europe Direct Venezia and the collaboration of EIUC Venice and BETA Italia - Bringing Europeans Together Association.

The VeUMEU is an excellent opportunity for students to gain an understanding of multilateral diplomacy, and to hone their negotiating and leadership while practising public speaking.
Students will learn about the legislative process, rules of procedure, revision and introduction of amendments and how to draft EU Directives and Regulations.

Participants will act like real MEPs or Council delegates; a group of students will also form the Press Corps, reporting on developments during the weekend of activities.

The Venice Universities' Model European Union will take place at Venice International University with a focus on education and environment.

Places are limited and participation is open to students of Ca' Foscari, EIUC, VIU and VIU member universities with an interest in international relations, international law, environmental protection and European Union working procedures.
The participation in the VeUMEU simulations is free of charge. Lunch break and public transports are at participants’ expense.

admitted candidates will be notified by: April 6
selected candidates must confirm their participation by: April 11.*

* Withdrawals after April 11 will be accepted without consequences only in case of: certified university commitments and health issues.
