MUN Conferences are a great way to learn about the United Nations, explore diplomacy, understand foreign cultures and meet young people from all around the world. MUNs are as old as the UN are and the good news is: There's plenty of them. So, if you don't want to wait until next year's C'MUN, find yourself another MUN experience! And the even better news: There is more than MUNs. If you should ever grow tired of simulating the UN, if you want to bridge the gap between game and reality, if you want to join the UN universe: then join UNYANET!
The United Nations Youth Associations Network is an umbrella organisation of national UN Youth Associations. It assembles young MUN organizers, members of UN student clubs, future diplomats and young people passionate about the UN. At the moment, UNYANET has 14 member associations and 2 observers with altogether ca 20,000 individuals, cooperation in further countries and partnerships with the UN Information Services (UNIS) in Geneva and Vienna and the UN Department of Public Information (UNDPI) in New York.
UNYANET is a network that facilitates UN youth projects by exchanging knowledge, sharing best practices, pooling resources and providing advice. Furthermore, UNYANET provides a common contact point for UN Youth Associations, UN and other international organisations. Join one of UNYANET's Working Groups, participate at online webinars on topics such as the Post2015 Agenda, help us organize Study Trips and worldwide flashmobs – there are many ways to get active.
