What is UNA Youth?
UNA Youth brings together university students from almost 50 branches across the UK who are passionate about the United Nations and its work to promote a secure, just and sustainable world.
Our aim is to equip young people with a better understanding of the UN and create opportunities for them to play an active role in international affairs.
What do we do?
Branches coordinate most of UNA Youth's activities organising events such as workshops, panel discussions, conferences and Model United Nations that give attendees and participants a real insight into the work of the United Nations.
Want to set up your own branch?
Setting up a branch at your university is easy. All you need to do is submit a brief mission statement, the names of your branch officers and either a £25 affiliation fee or details of six branch members that are also paying member of UNA-UK.

The activities of UNA Youth are overseen by the Youth Council, which is elected at the UNA Youth annual conference. The Youth Council supports, develops and coordinates the activities of braches and to provide a link between individual UNA Youth members in accordance with the UNA Youth Constitution. It also runs national campaigns and events which individuals and branches can get involved with.
