Organizational Structure

Who are we?

United Nations Association Albania (UNAA) is a Civil Society Organization dedicated to informing, inspiring, and mobilizing the Albanian “people” to support and promote the values and activities of the United Nations. Since the 24th of October 2016, a diverse group of young Albanians passionate about youth engagement and the United Nations decided to join their endeavors to create and foster a UN community in their country. Throughout its functioning, UNAA has been engaged in numerous projects, including: “Building Partnership for Youth, Peace, and Security”; MUN Albania Initiative; Coffee Talks Series; UN75 Anniversary Initiative, Albanian UN Youth Delegate Programme; and most recently, “UNYA Albania – Upgrading Youth Skills for Sustainable Action” Project, funded by the European Endowment for Democracy.

Through activities, such as seminars, webinars, roundtables workshops, conferences, publications, and simulations of the international decision-making bodies, UNAA aims at promoting multilateralism, structured dialogue at the national, regional and international levels, help understand and locally act upon the Sustainable Development Goals, and serve as a tool for non-formal education fostering the spirit of cooperation and volunteerism.
