FWWMUN New York

World's Largest Youth Empowerment Initiative

FWWMUN 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 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 diplomatic missions of the UN Member States.
