Side meeting opportunities

The WUN Conference and AGM is held annually and usually takes place in May. It is the one time each year that the WUN community comes together to network, evaluate the previous year’s achievements and to set the course for the year ahead. The conference usually includes a Presidents Forum; meetings of the Global Challenge Steering Groups; business meetings of the Partnership Board, AAG and Coordinators Group; and the Annual WUN Dinner.

In addition to the above there are also usually other events that occur alongside the WUN Conference and AGM including Global Challenge Conferences, IRG Workshops and side meetings.

We encourage WUN partner universities and their Presidents to arrange additional activities with alumni, funding agencies and other associations of interest to maximise benefits of their WUN AGM stay.

Several universities have indicated that they will hold associated events, such as alumni receptions and fundraising meetings, as part of their visit to New York – home of the United Nations General Assembly, many major funding agencies and civil society organisations.

WUN has invited senior representatives from the UN and funding agencies to the Presidents Forum. Please see the Presidents Forum program for more information.
