Future We Want MUN

A Global Initiative for Young Leaders

FWW

Background

Inspired by the 2012 Rio+20 Resolution, “The Future We Want”, the FWWMUN is committed to promoting a united international community, a better future, and a more sustainable world through the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). FWWMUN has identified 10 goals from the 17 SDGs as key focus areas related to youth and education to guide the work of the organization. UN high level officials have highlighted the important role Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and Youth NGOs play in advocating for the SDGs in their countries. FWWMUN will work closely with organizations committed to bringing about the Future We Want to help all of us address this challenge together.

Our Approach

A core principle of FWWMUN programming is a commitment to substantive excellence. As a Global educational conference committed to educating youth through Model United Nations programs and workshops, FWWMUN seeks to bring together future generations of leaders from all corners of the globe to gain first-hand experience in international relations, to produce high quality resolutions aimed at bringing about the Future We Want, and to submit these resolutions to relevant UN agencies and world leaders for consideration. FWWMUN is committed to building a better world by serving the United Nations and international community.

Methodology

By bringing together the social mission of FWWMUN along with a committed secretariat led by senior officers and brilliant young enthusiasts, FWWMUN, working actively with NGOs and academic institutions across the globe, will promote and educate students in leadership, international relations, and consensus-building. FWWMUN programs bring together students from around the world to meet as youth, build long-standing friendships, and learn emotional and social skills along with gaining a new level of academic understanding of the issues discussed at the United Nations. Students will develop their critical thinking skills, cross-cultural understanding, and self-confidence through this activity to go on and become Agents of Change in their communities.

They recognized that without skilled and employable young people, our chances of achieving the Goals are greatly diminished. It is time to take that commitment seriously.”
