Future We Want

Model United Nations Conference



From March 8-11, 2018, over 2,000 delegates will gather in New York City to participate in rigorous debates about critical issues facing people around the world. The Future We Want Model United Nations Conference (FWWMUN) will provide delegates the opportunity to explore issues the United Nations faces today. Delegates will debate the UN General Assembly, Economic and Social Council, and other official committees giving them the opportunity to live the experience of diplomats. As delegates debate issues picked directly from the United Nations agenda, they will have the opportunity to understand the critical need for international peace and security. Together, the delegates will work to find realistic solutions, which at the conclusion of the conference will be submitted to the United Nations Secretariat for review. Delegates will have the opportunity to impact international development, peace, and security following four days of rigorous debate.

Model UN is an incredible educational experience that helps to train future world leaders and introduce students to some of the world’s most pressing issues. In order to make this experience accessible to all students, we will be providing scholarships for all 2500 students to confirm registration to attend the conference without any delegate or advisor fees. For students travelling to the conference from outside of the New York City area, up to 1500 housing scholarships are also available on a first-come, first-served basis to cover two hotel nights costs.


We are thrilled to be presenting this conference to you and look forward to seeing you in New York City!


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 conferences, 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.


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.

The Role of Youth in Sustainable Development: Engaged, Involved, Empowered!
