  • What is a Model United Nations?
    Model United Nations (MUN) is an academic program designed to teach students about contemporary events in international relations and politics. Students participating in MUN simulate committees in the United Nations by playing the role of delegates from countries all over the world. Students are assigned to a country and are provided with topics, developed by the FWWMUN staff, prior to the conference, and they debate and discuss them with other youth from all around the world in an attempt to find viable solutions to the problems. The process is designed to exercise students’ ability to speak, write, research, negotiate, and think critically about the most pressing issues of today's world.
  • What is Future We Want Model United Nations?
    FWWMUN is an educational program that brings 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 begins with a series of workshops delivered by UN Officials and Diplomats about Youth Involvement, the SDGs, and Leadership. Furthermore, during the first committee session, delegates will have the opportunity to engage at a High Level by benefitting from experts in their field on the committee topics. During the years, several events of the FWWMUN were held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. Today, the FWWMUN is the largest MUN platform for selected youth and it includes also regional workshops in the five continents: a unique concept made possible only thanks to the support of the partnering governmental institutions. ​ If you are looking for an engaging experience that will challenge and enhance the capabilities of delegates from every skill level, then FWWMUN is the right conference for you. As the largest and most diverse high school and university conference in the world, FWWMUN provides students with exposure to the world's most pressing issues, an array of top-quality and academically rigorous preparation and training materials, direct access to diplomats, ambassadors, and government officials, and the unique experience of deep immersion into the United Nations system itself.
