About the UNAA

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in the United Nations Association of Australia (UNAA)


The UNAA works to inform, inspire and engage Australians on the work, goals, and values of the United Nations to create a safer, fairer, more sustainable world.

To implement our Strategic Plan, our teams across Australia, Young Professionals Network and Academic Network run over 150 events a year engaging thousands of people on the work of the UN and the Sustainable Development Goals.  Our national programs and many events help educate Australian citizens and leaders about the UN’s vital work and encourage them to become involved in promoting the UN. We work to support UN Youth to promote greater understanding of the UN within Australian schools, particularly through the conduct of Model UN Conferences. We promote the UN’s critical role in striving to maintain international peace and security, human rights and sustainable development. In particular we focus on promoting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the issues affecting Australians and Australia, such as climate change, the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, gender equality and refugees.

Now, more than ever, Australia needs the UN … and the UN needs Australia.

We hope you will join us.
