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.
