UNA-UK Trustee Elections
Viv Williams and Carl Wrightreceived the most first-preference votes in a poll conducted by post and online. In accordance with the voting instructions, they will be appointed Trustees by the United Nations Association - UK Board at its next meeting.
This will be the most interactive event of the year for UNA-UK members and supporters. It will give you the opportunity to network with like-minded people, discuss global issues and get equipped to campaign in your own community.
It will take place on Saturday 20 May at NCVO’s headquarters close to King’s Cross station in London.
This year some changes have been made to the format of conference, introducing some fresh new features:
- A member-wide vote on the area of UNA-UK’s work that Conference should focus on.
- Workshops on taking ideas back to your own community.
- UNA-UK team presentations and Q&A - including our new Chairman, Lord Wood of Anfield.
- A time to present your own priorities to other participants.
In the next few weeks every UNA-UK member, will be asked to vote on the area of UNA-UK’s work you think Conference ‘17 should focus on. Everyone who books a ticket will also have the opportunity to tell us what global issue they think we should be working on.
We have been given Regional funding for a Schools Project. The Project will provide opportunities for students aged 15 to 18 in Norfolk schools to engage in either or both of two competitions related to the role of the UN in specific international issues:
1. Essay or newspaper column: on one of two topics current at the time of circulation
2. Short video for the Norwich UNA website to promote interest of young people in the work of UNA supporting the role of the UN
These two competitions would be launched in September 2017 through circulation to all Norfolk Secondary Schools

Take action for refugees
UNA-UK is calling on its members and supporters to take action for refugees by participating in Refugee Week's Simple Acts campaign. We believe that if all our supporters commit to just one of these simple acts, it will go a long way towards challenging the stereotypes of refugees that persist in the UK.
