UN Study Tours

2020 Tour Dates

We will again take two small group study tours to the UN in 2020 – these are limited to 10 people and are filled on a first-comes, first served basis.

In 2020, we will travel to Geneva from 7-13 June and to New York from 1- 7 November.

“The Geneva Study Tour was a wonderful opportunity to observe what goes on in the world. We could not have possibly ever seen these things without the UN Association connections,” Caroline Bui, Geneva 2019 participant

 

UNAA Tours to the UN

In 2018, we launched a new program of small group Study Tours to UN Headquarters.

We have now run two tours to Geneva and two to New York.

During these tours, participants spend a week touring the UN headquarters in both cities and meeting with UN officials and representatives of such agencies as UNICEF, the World Trade Organisation (WTO), World Health Organisation (WHO), UN High Commissioner for Refugees and the International Labour Organisation (ILO).

Meetings are also held with organisations which link into the UN such as the Association for the Prevention of Torture, Crisis Action and the International Peace Institute.

The UNAAV Study Tour to New York proved to be an invaluable and thoroughly enjoyable experience. We were provided with unique insight into the priorities, plans and projects of the UN and its agencies, and given the opportunity to make connections and learn from people working within the organisation, including many Australians”, Dani Pallister, 2018 NYC Tour participant.

The tour was a life changing experience to see first-hand the workings of the United Nations and their role in supporting peace, wellbeing and human rights for all.” “I would highly recommend the tour to anyone with an interest in the values of the United Nations and a strong interest in learning what you can do in to be a good global citizen of the world,” Geneva 2018 participant Alicia Mathews.
