Model United Nations Conference
From March 8-11, 2018, over 2,000 delegates will gather at the United Nations Headquarters 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 in the UN General Assembly Hall, Economic and Social Council Chamber, and other official meeting places giving them the opportunity to live the experience of diplomats at the UN Headquarters. 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 the first 1500 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, a limited number of housing scholarships are also available on a first-come, first-served basis to cover hotel costs.
We are thrilled to be presenting this conference to you and look forward to seeing you in New York City!
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. FWWMUN is the largest Model United Nations conference held entirely within the United Nations Headquarters, and is committed to building a better world by serving the United Nations and international community.
By bringing together the social mission of WFMUNA 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.
