Be a Part of It: New York, New York!

Over 4,100 university students, more than half from outside the United States, met in New York City to discuss current global issues in a real world context. NMUN•NY 2024 offered 16 simulated UN committees and used procedural rules developed with the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR). Delegates from more than 123 UN Member States took advantage of opportunities at Permanent Missions to the UN, the United Nations itself, as well as world class museums, architecture, shows, restaurants, and shopping. The conference features included interactions with Secretariat members and we were pleased to, once again, hold closing ceremonies at the UN Headquarters building.
