UNSA Spain is working towards positive and progresive change through a network of youth leaders, national gatherings, training events, resources and more. The activities carried out by the Federation seek to be as participatory and transparent as possible, adapting and continuously following the proposals of its participants and partners.
Some of our activities are illustrated below:
National MUN Calendar
We are continuously working on the creation of a national calendar for all Model United Nations (MUNs) in Spain, in order to offer a unified information portal for the young people, as well as to contribute to the promotion of such activities and to help avoid collision between those MUNs. All the associations present at the meeting in the United Nations General Directorate of the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs on November 29, 2016 agreed with this proposal, calling the calendar an ‘essential necessity’, a necessity that we intend to contribute solving.
“How Youth Organizations directly impact on the European Policy-Making Process” is an intense debate between leaders and representatives from various branches of society and politics. The aim of this debate was to generate a dialogue between experts from the European institutions and leaders of youth organizations across Europe that could propose measures to improve the impact that the latter can generate in the European legislative process. The first version of this event was held in the European Parliament on December 12, 2016. The document with the operational conclusions of the meeting is a free access resource for any interested person or entity.
“How young organizations can directly impact children’s policies” is the second edition of the series of UNSA CHALLENGES that was held in Madrid on May 21, 2017, in collaboration with UNICEF Spain, Opinno and IE University Student Government.
Following the best practices of our most active Associations and Partners, UNSA Spain promotes the creation of online and offline volunteering opportunities, which are linked to specific projects either owned by the Federation or collaborating entities with the aim of empowering our young people by providing them with professional and personal competences for their full development.
The aim of this art exhibition is to raise funds for refugees living in Spain, to make their current situation visible in the context of the current migratory crisis in the European Union and to raise awareness of the richness of the diversity of the human race, which should not serve as a justification for the imposition of discriminatory barriers. The “Connecting Cultures” art exhibition has been inspired by the theme of SEIMUN (one of the largest MUN Simulations in Spain), held in Granada in May 2017.
In collaboration with the youth and other institutions, we continue to develop the program, called Spanish Youth Delegate to the UN. The program offers young people to defend their rights and interests at international and national level, actively participating in global and intergovernmental processes of the UN system and other entities.
