Chapter Summary

The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA), located in New York and Geneva, was founded on 2 August 1946 in Luxembourg upon the initiative of the British United Nations Association (UNA-UK). According to the WFUNA Constitution, one national United Nations Association (UNA) per state can become a member if it accepts the general objectives of the Federation. WFUNA distinguishes between members and associated organizations such as the International Academy of Ecological Reconstruction and Sokka Gakkai International. WFUNA-Youth is the official youth section of WFUNA connecting 41 United Nations Youth Associations and UNA Youth Programmes/Sections. WFUNA-Youth aims to strengthen the national activities of its members through different capacity- building measures for its members including Project Management Workshops and handbooks to enable them to successfully carry out projects to inform the young public about the UN.
