In September, WFUNA Secretary-General Bonian Golmohammadi visited Korea where he met with representatives from WFP Korea, Korea Youth Work Agency, Future Forest and UNESCO's Asia-Pacific Centre of Education for International Understanding as well as attended a host of cultural events. During the visit, WFUNA also signed Memorandums of Understanding with Busan University of Foreign Studies, Geumjeong District of Busan and Ecomom. Take a look at his eventful trip.

We hosted two successful workshops at the 65th Annual UN DPI/NGO Conference on 28 August 2014 at UN Headquarters in New York City. The first morning workshop gathered four UNAs from the Dominican Republic, Finland, Suriname and Zimbabwe to share their best practices on how to engage civil society around the post-2015 development agenda. The second afternoon workshop reflected upon the question addressed by our Freedom from Violence project: Should there be a goal on peaceful societies in the post-2015 development agenda?

During the 2014 World Conference on Youth in Sri Lanka, we hosted a side event titled "How to Become a UN Youth Delegate." The distinguished panel included the UN Secretary-General's Envoy on Youth Ahmad Alhendawi, WCY Global Advisor Ravi Karkara, Sri Lanka's 2013 UN Youth Delegate Chapa Perera and Ties Mouwen, Dutch Youth Representative on Climate and Sustainable Development to the United Nations.

2013 was a memorable year for the World Federation of United Nations Associations. We met with old friends, were introduced to new ones, launched new programs and initiatives, and were recognized in a resolution by the UN General Assembly for our contributions to the UN. As we welcome a new year of future milestones and achievements, our staff in New York and Geneva also looks back at the memorable moments of 2013. Click through the gallery for our favorites.
