The UNAAV Young Professionals Network (UNAAV YPN) provides opportunities for young professionals between the ages of 25 and 40 to interact with like-minded people and learn more about international issues, the United Nations and the work of UN associations in Australia.
The UNAAV YPN regularly runs social, networking events and undertakes advocacy and engagement activities.
The UNAAV YPN has also led the UNAA’s advocacy on human trafficking, with the publication of an Issues Paper on Australia’s Human Trafficking Visa Framework, UNCover. This paper was turned into a submission to the Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade’s Inquiry into a Modern Slavery Act.
Many of the changes recommended by the Committee in its final report were in line with the Advocacy Committee’s recommended actions.Click here to read UnCover

Many UNAAV YP networking events are held to coincide with UN Days, such as World Press Freedom Day and the World Day of Social Justice, while the Global Goals Academy acts as a leadership series, aimed to educate and empower action towards achieving the UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development (the Global Goals).
