-- EVENT POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19 TRAVEL LIMITATION --
We have received a number of questions and concerns in light of the travel limitations due to restrictictions imposed by the relevant governmental authorities. The July session of WCYD's Board, held in New York on 30-31 July 2022, consulted with relevant chinese governmental offices and concluded that the probability of the FWWMUN Shanghai having to be postponed during the course of the following months is high and it is impossible to mitigate this risk. In consideration of that, WCYD Board decided to postpone the FWWMUN Shanghai conference until further notice.
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.
FWWMUN Shanghai will gather hundreds of young leaders from all corners of the globe to discuss the most pressing UN topics and come out with valuable contributions to build a better world.
