The UN Youth Auckland Regional Equity Fund 2014 is open!

UN Youth Auckland is making it easier to participate as an active member of our organisation. Attending events, whether regionally or at a national-level, can be a burdensome undertaking and students are often financially-pressured.

We believe in the transformative potential of our events to empower young New Zealanders towards being global citizens, through mixing and mingling with like-minded individuals. We back the value of our educational programme unreservedly, so we’re putting our money where our mouth is.

Auckland Universities' Model United Nations Registrations are now open!

UniMUN is an event for all tertiary students to step into the shoes of diplomats, represent a country, and learn about the United Nations: all while meeting plenty of like-minded young people.
