The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) is a global nonprofit organization representing and coordinating a membership of over 100 national United Nations Associati (UNAs) and their thousands of constituents. Guided by our 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. We achieve this through the engagement of people who share a global mindset and support international cooperation – global citizens.

WFUNA's Secretariat is based at One UN Plaza in New York City and at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. We also have offices in Seoul, Korea and Brussels, Belgium.

What we value

  • Impact: We value performance and results. We set and hold ourselves accountable to high standards.

  • Respect: We listen to and learn from our constituents, partners, funders, and one another. We value diverse perspectives and strive to incorporate them in our work.

  • Empowerment: We believe in the power of knowledge and its capacity to mobilize human beings to create a better world.

  • Collaboration: We work as a team within WFUNA and with our partners. We share ideas and try to align our efforts with those of others who are dedicated to the goals of the United Nations.

  • Innovation: We seek original approaches for achieving our goals, taking advantage of creative communication for our outreach.

  • Passion: We are committed to making a difference. We strive for what can be; we do not settle for what is.
