About the MUN Youth Assembly, UN HQ NYC: This is an original program by United Ambassadors that aims to provide a platform for talented, aspiring MUN leaders to express their views on the changing MUN landscape and how MUN can have an impact on the world. Through the MUN Youth Assembly and the MUN Hall of Fame, we strive to encourage MUNers worldwide to actively work with the United Nations in advocating for the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Global Development. We also strive to encourage the spread of valuable new initiatives in the field, like Multilingual MUN, and UN4MUN, the MUN platform developed by the United Nations that UA-MUNC follows.

It came 2 weeks before the 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly and culminated in the launch of a resolution that encourages young MUN leaders around the world to drive a positive change in their Model UN circuit. It was supported and encouraged by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, The President of the General Assembly, Mr. Mogens Lykketoft, the United Nations Department of Public Information, the SDG Action Campaign and the Office of the UN Secretary-General's Envoy on Youth.
