WFUNA International Model UN Conference
November 10-14, 2015

Join us at the WFUNA International Model United Nations of North America. On behalf of the entire WIMUN secretariat, we would like to invite you and your school to attend the 2015 WFUNA International Model United Nations conference! The conference will take place the 10th-14th of November in New York City.

As it stands, the WFUNA International Model United Nations (WIMUN) is the most accurate simulation of the United Nations in the world. 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.

During WIMUN 2015, participants will have the unparalleled opportunity to debate the Post 2015 Agenda while the world’s top diplomats debate the exact same issues alongside them in the UN Headquarters during the 70th Session of the General Assembly. The conference theme, “Global Transformation: The Sustainable Development Goals,” and the selected issues on the agenda challenges all participants to engage actively with the Post-2015 Agenda and the SDGs and make a strong and meaningful contribution to the ongoing dialogue.

Yet, WIMUN also challenges students to study the United Nations on a macro and a micro-level: not only are we focused on the United Nations as a whole, but we are interested in challenging delegates to be diplomatic in every day life -- which we facilitate through consensus building. At WIMUN, students will improve in the following areas: (1) interpersonal skills; (2) professionalism; and (3) global citizenship through our workshops and simulations.

More information and registration details can be found at our website : www.wfuna.org/wimun<http://www.wfuna.org/wimun>. Registration deadline is September 15th. It would be a privilege to have your school attend!

Please do not hesitate to contact me at northamerica.wimun@gmail.com<mailto:northamerica.wimun@gmail.com> if you have any questions!

* Strong previous interest and/or participation in games, game design or criticism, or the game industry
* Academic achievement
* Ability to work in a team
* Willingness to collaborate
* A firm commitment to the entire 12-week program, which will run on Saturdays from February until May, 2016
