Greetings and welcome aboard the United Nations Association Indonesia (UNA Indonesia) family! It is my absolute pleasure to welcome you to our association and to our official website.
On behalf of the entire UNA Indonesia team, I would like to thank you for visiting our website and I wish you a pleasant experience.
United Nations Association Indonesia (UNA Indonesia) is a nonprofit group established by Indonesian youths in 2021. UNA Indonesia aims to enhance the relationship between Indonesian society, particularly youth and the marginalized, with the United Nations.
UNA Indonesia is an official member of World Federation United Nations Association (WFUNA), engaged with global governance to support the works and goals of the UN in Indonesia and worldwide. UNA Indonesia is also acknowledged by the Ministry of Law and Human Rights of Indonesia as an official association.
UNA Indonesia believes that building a sustainable society can only be achieved through inclusive and inter-generational development, thus UNAI is also persistent in supporting local grassroots organizations working within the confines of Sustainable Development Goals and pushing for youth involvement and civic participation in global governance.
UNA Indonesia educates Indonesians about the UN, its goals, issues, and the important role that the UN has. We also inform people how they can participate in accomplishing these goals and encourage them to do so. UNA Indonesia does this through its social platforms and events that allow the UN to share its insights while also hearing back from the public. You can see our events here.
While raising awareness is pivotal, we realize that so is taking action. There are those that are already working to achieve the UN’s goals but still lack resources for their impacts to be far-reaching and sustainable. Thus, UNA Indonesia gathers feedback from communities to identify their concerns and the areas they still need support in. Furthermore, we also allow the public to submit their proposals to the UN through us if they want to collaborate with the UN or request the UN for resources, such as through capacity building.
Lastly, realizing that youth participation in the UN is still minimum despite increasing interest, UNA Indonesia also hosts interns throughout the year. They will be able to learm more about the UN and experience working with them. It is important for our nation’s youths to understand that the UN needs their contributions, and that change begins from home.
