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.
