UN Youth runs dozens of events across the year, right across the country. Check out our incredible Regional Events which are held in all four of the main centres, as well as some of the smaller cities. Our National Events bring together students and speakers from right across New Zealand for a more engaging conference that will challenge students in new ways. Finally, our International Events give students the opportunity to see the workings of international relations and diplomacy in action.
