The event, which took place on 27 April, saw over 150 members from around the country debating matters of concern to the United Nations and identifying issues on which the Association could take action over the coming two years.
The day’s proceedings were based on submissions from members gathered ahead of the conference, with discussions grouped according to UNA-UK’s agreed policy programmes and priorities, as contained in its 2011-15 Strategic Plan:
- A safer world: peace and security
- A fairer world: human rights, humanitarian and social issues
- A sustainable world: international development and environment
- Cross-cutting themes: UN institutions, gender and population.
