Warm welcome
Meet and greet new and old faces before UNA-UK staff give an overview of the day 

Expert interaction
Our keynote speaker is Jeremy Gilley, Founder of Peace One Day, who spearheaded a campaign that has seen a General Assembly resolution unanimously adopted by UN member states, marking 21 September as an annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on the UN International Day of Peace.

He shares his experience and expertise on making change in communities at a local, national and international level. You'll also get the chance to ask questions

Local action interaction
Get acquainted with seasoned activists who will take it in turns to talk about their experience campaigning on different areas of UNA-UK's work. You'll get a chance to pick their brains when they lead group sessions in the afternoon

Networking lunch
Share a sandwich lunch over informal conversation with other members and the UNA-UK team


Committing to action
Whether its nuclear disarmament, peacekeeping or another area of our work, you'll work with your group leader to put your ideas to the test and come up with one campaign action that you could take to your community

Action exhibition
This is your chance as a group to sell your idea. Pitch your campaign action to the crowd to find out who will pledge to take action with you.

After the event, UNA-UK will follow up with participants and provide the resources you need to fulfil your pledge
