Thirty-five student representatives from 18 universities took part in the ninth edition of WFUNA’s College Leaders at the UN Program. The participants are Korean nationals, selected and sent from their respective universities to represent the school at the United Nations. The student cohort started the program in November, meeting once a week to learn about the Sustainable Development Goals.
On March 9, 2022, the World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) organized the Peace Talk on Ukraine in Seoul, ROK. More than 30 participants including diplomats, international organization professionals, journalists, and WFUNA Peace Fellows joined the event, and around 20 College Leaders at the UN (CLUN) virtually attended the event through Zoom.
6 months after launching its online programs, Mission Possible looks back on student's appreciation of the virtual experience.
Since last May, more than 140 students from 15 countries on 5 continents have participated in Mission Possible’s Youth Connect and Kick-Start Your Action programs. The programs engage young people in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by challenging them to take action on concrete issues connected to the goals.
WIMUN Geneva, which received an award for Best Large Model UN Conference in 2019, was moved online due to the pandemic and transformed into a 10-day conference (from 30 Oct. - 8 Nov. 2020) unlike any that has been organized before.
WFUNA's Mission Possible Online program keeps expanding! Since we launched in April 2020, students from more than 30 schools on five continents have signed up for our Kick-Start Your Action and Youth Connect programs. High school students from 15 countries in the Americas, Africa, Asia, Europe, and Oceania are contributing to making our programs a truly global, intercultural experience. 4 groups have completed Kick-Start Your Action and 4 groups have completed Youth Connect.
Calling all high school students interested in connecting with youth from around the world to develop solutions to pressing local and global issues! Our Mission Possible program now offers two types of online trainings that support young people to become Agents of Change, building solidarity with other youth:
NEW YORK, NY – The World Federation of United Nations Associations [WFUNA] and the International Schools Association [ISA] have signed a two-year agreement in an effort to promote the Sustainable Development Goals and global citizenship. The collaboration will leverage WFUNA’s expertise in youth engagement and ISA’s position as a leader for International Schools.
WIMUN has just finished up our Summer Online Simulation series, and we are happy to announce it was a huge success! The Summer Online Simulation series featured multiple committees including the simulation of the Security Council, Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, Intergovernmental Negotiations on Security Council Reform, and the General Assembly. Simulating topics ranging from the smuggling of migrants to the elimination of terrorism, we had delegates from over 50 countries register, making this WIMUN series one of the most diverse to date!
WFUNA is proud to announce that the 2019 editions of WIMUN New York and WIMUN Geneva were both rated the Best Large Model UN Conference. As these two awards are based entirely on anonymous reviews sent by participants to the MyMUN platform, we want to thank all the students and Faculty Advisors who participated in these conferences.
