The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) is a global nonprofit organization working for a stronger and more effective United Nations. Established in 1946, we represent and coordinate a membership of over 100 United Nations Associations and their thousands of members. We work to build a better world by strengthening and improving the United Nations, through the engagement of people who share a global mindset and support international cooperation – global citizens. Our organization has offices at the United Nations in both New York and Geneva and hosts interns in both locations. www.wfuna.org
With a strong determination to engage civil society with the work of the United Nations, WFUNA has hosted a series of Model United Nations Conferences in New York, Brazil, India and Korea. WIMUN offers the most accurate simulation of the United Nations in the world. Conferences include simulations of the General Assembly, Security Council, ECOSOC, International Court of Justice and the International Labor Organization. The WIMUN program is intended for youth between the age of 14 and 30, recent graduates who have experience in Model UN or have a strong interest in the United Nations and global affairs, as well as advisors who have a role in planning and organizing MUN conferences.
