The UNYA Denmark is a youth-led (15-35 y.o.), non-profit organization that works to promote and raise awareness amongst youth about the United Nations, in particular the Sustainable Development Goals as well as UN-affiliated causes, values, and issues. We want to be a place where empathetic, passionate youth can show up, engage, and learn about the world. We want to enable anyone with ideas on how to improve the state of the world or support of the Global Goals can show up and be given to tools to impact their local community and be heard by a motivated and globally minded audience.
Our purpose is to:
- educate young people and the community about the work and values of the United Nations;
- empower young people to get involved in international affairs and civil society;
- represent the views of young people at a local, national and international level; and
- act as a forum for young people to network and socialize.
