WFUNA International Model UN is organized by the World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA). WIMUN is the most accurate and realistic simulation of the United Nations. Additionally, it features the WIMUN approach, extensive training resources, and briefings on important agenda items by UN Staff or other experts on the agenda.
WIMUN aims to foster global citizenship in our youth by educating them on current and relevant issues that the United Nations and international community are facing and to equip them with the skills to research, negotiate, and resolve those issues together. Additionally, all topics discussed at WIMUN are current items being considered by the UN itself on its Agenda, and participants are offered UN resources and documentation to prepare for the sessions.
Furthermore, in order to allow students to engage with Model UN, even during COV-19 related lockdowns, WFUNA is offering weekly online sessions that will give participants the unique opportunity to learn about current world affairs and the United Nations, while honing their public speaking, negotiation, and debating skills – all from the comfort and safety of their home.
WIMUN Online is for all high school and university students aged 14-30, with high school and university students being split into different sessions. Additionally, each session will go ahead once a minimum amount of students have registered in order to ensure proper and productive debate and negotiations.
The duration of the session is from April 14- May 01. There is a division of the session into different durations. Additionally, different schools and Universities are providing the sessions in which the applicants can discuss and expand their knowledge on various topics.
