WIMUN is the most accurate and realistic simulation of the United Nations and features the WIMUN approach, intensive training workshops taught by a former UN official, briefings on important agenda items by UN Agencies, and sessions in the heart of New York City. More than 800 youth from around the globe will gather for a four-day program with educational and simulation components. There will be a university track and high school track, and the participants will have the opportunity to engage ina wide range of simulations of different UN bodies and agencies.
At WIMUN, we aim to foster global citizenship in our youth by educating them on current and relevant issues that the United Nations and international community is facing and to equip them with the skills to research, negotiate, and resolve those issues together. All topics discussed at WIMUN are current items being considered by the UN itself on its Agenda, and participants are taught to prepare with UN resources and documentation in online webinars prior to the conference. With students coming from over 70 different countries at previous editions, and Secretariat members from every inhabited continent, WIMUN is the most diverse conference in the world and reflects the wide, international membership of the United Nations.
