UNA-UK’s ‘Generation United Nations’ programme works through teachers and educators, preparing young people to navigate the opportunities and challenges that our interconnected world presents.  This programme has three distinct strands:


Our high quality teaching materials are produced in conjunction with UN and education experts.  They provide background briefings, activity ideas and template lessons.  Click here for our latest International Days resource.


Our informal network of teachers is a good opportunity to get more involved with our work.  Members are asked to exchange ideas, input into resources and champion our activities.  To find out more and join, please contact Richard Nelmes, UNA-UK’s Head of Outreach.


Generation Unitied Nations schools appreciate the value of engaging their students and their community with the work and value of the United Nations.


As a grassroots movement of over 15,000 people we frequently speak out on UN issues.  Our recent successes include a campaign to keep teaching about the UN in the new curriculum for England and Wales.
