We are thrilled to announce the return of UN Youth New Zealand’s Global Development Tour for 2019: an international delegation open to our high school-aged members.

The Global Development Tour is an unparalleled educational experience for young global citizens. From 12 January to 10 February 2019, four volunteer Directors will take 22 Delegates to New York, Europe and Hong Kong to learn about sustainable development, diplomacy, international relations, and the role of the United Nations in it all. The Tour will also include the opportunity for the Delegation to represent New Zealand at the prestigious Columbia Model United Nations Conference and Exposition (CMUNCE).

These are hosted by members of the Tour’s Directorship, and will provide you with more information about the Tour, and to have any burning questions answered.
