UNYA Aalborg: Who are we?

The United Nations Youth Association (UNYA) is a youth-led organisation consisting entirely of youth volunteers. UNYA is a great way to learn about the United Nations and get other youth involved in understanding and sharing the ideals enshrined in the UN Charter and other universal principles. UNYA also provides fertile ground for youth empowerment, education, networking, and generating public opinion to support the work of the United Nations building a better world for all.

Some of the core aims of UNYA is to:

  • Educate young people and the community about the work of the United Nations
  • Empower young people to get involved in international affairs and civil society
  • Represent the views of young people at a local, national and international level
  • Act as forum for young people to network and socialize

In this website you will find a collection of articles and essays from the Danish UNYA. Here, highly talented young professionals voice their views and raise awareness in one way or another about UN-related issues.
