Learn About the UN – UNA NZ Core Course
We have developed a course aimed at secondary school students and first-year university students.
It provides an introductory overview of the structure and operations of the United Nations.
It aims to develop awareness and understanding of the UN system and the global issues it tackles, and the often complex environments it operates in.
In addition, it will challenge students to think critically about the issues the UN tackles and the effectiveness of the UN system.
