National Council

What is the National Council?

The National Council is the supreme policy-making representative body of National and Regional UN Youth office holders that meets 3-4 times a year around the country to discuss how the organisation is running and to give policy direction to those who are administering UN Youth nationally (the National Executive), regionally (Regional Councils) and those running events or facilitating delegations.
