THIMUN and the United Nations
In 1995 the THIMUN Foundation was accredited as a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) associated with the United Nations Department of Public Information. In 2003 the THIMUN Foundation was granted Roster Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council. Representatives of THIMUN have attended meetings in New York.
United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan, who visited THIMUN in 2002, stated:
The fact that THIMUN exists to uphold the values of the United Nations among the young is particularly important, since it is from the young that we should draw our energy and inspiration as we strive to make the United Nations effective and responsive to the needs of the people worldwide.
