2 August 1946 - 2 August 2011

WFUNA is proud to celebrate 65 years of commitment to its mission of building a better world by strengthening and improving the United Nations through the engagement UNAs and global citizens.

Just one year after the proclamation of the UN Charter, WFUNA was founded in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, on 2 August 1946 by 22 United Nations Associations. This year marks the 65th anniversary of this historic Plenary Assembly, and the occasion to celebrate the anniversary of WFUNA and its founding members.

WFUNA would like to express my congratulations to all UNA members and their leadership, both past and present, for 65 years of commitment to the values and ideals of the United Nations, and for being steadfast and active contributors to WFUNA’s vibrant global network.

In 1946 the founding UNAs were ahead of their time – recognizing the increasing interdependence of global issues, the unique and essential role of the United Nations, and the need for a dynamic and resourceful civil society to champion it. Today, the role of WFUNA and UNAs has become ever more valuable as we support and aid the United Nations in tackling diverse international challenges, and work towards strengthening and improving the world body.
