More than 90 years have passed since the first Model United Nations conference was organized to reproduce the workings of the League of Nations in 1920. Today there are more than one thousand MUN conferences organized annually by informal groups of students, schools, colleges, universities and UN agencies around the world.
The World Federation of Model United Nations Associations (WFMUNA) was established to unite all major MUN associations and clubs worldwide with the aim of creating a platform for knowledge sharing and coordination. Being affiliated with WFMUNA, MUN Associations and Clubs benefit from a world-class experience at MUN conferences and programs. A passionate guardian of UN principles, WFMUNA commits to supervising quality in MUN conferences globally, to monitoring the conduct and ethics of MUN organizations, and to making Model United Nations programs more accessible for all.
A core principle of WFMUNA programming is a commitment to substantive excellence. As a Global NGO committed to educating youth through Model United Nations programs and conferences, WFMUNA 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.
By bringing together the social mission of WFMUNA and its Model United Nations expertise, along with a committed secretariat led by senior officers and brilliant young enthusiasts, WFMUNA, working actively with NGOs and academic institutions across the globe, will promote and educate students in leadership, international relations, and consensus-building. WFMUNA 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.
