The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) is a global nonprofit organization representing and coordinating a membership of over 100 national United Nations Associations (UNAs) and their thousands of constituents. Guided by the vision of a United Nations that is a powerful force in meeting common global challenges and opportunities, WFUNA works to strengthen and improve the United Nations. They achieve this through the engagement of people who share a global mindset and support international cooperation – global citizens.

WFUNA International Model United Nations (WIMUN) is the world’s most accurate simulation of the United Nations. Located at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City, the World Federation of United Nations Associations has worked closely with the UN Department of Public Information to precisely simulate the United Nations in Model UN programs and provide students with the most realistic experience possible. The WIMUN conference features intensive training workshops taught by UN officials, briefings on important agenda items by UN Agencies, and conference sessions at the United Nations Headquarters. WIMUN is the one of the first conferences to implement UN4MUN on such a large scale, and they are working towards improving Rules of Procedures for educational purposes and bridging the gap between UN and MUN Rules of Procedures.
