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.

“For years we have seen signs of our depleting natural resources, as well as the increasing pressure of human needs on our Earth. We have to find a solution to this, and this solution needs to be permanent – this is what we call sustainable development.” Aadithya Athreya, a student from Vidyashilp Academy, spoke to his peers, faculty, parents, and stakeholders that attended the WFUNA Mission Possible Closing Ceremony about the importance of sustainable development.
