Rome

Young UN in Rome brings together young professionals from the three Rome-based United Nations agencies FAO, IFAD and WFP. Building upon various initiatives in the past, the hub was formed in summer 2018 to join the global Young UN network.

The group organizes activities open to anyone feeling young at heart independent of contract types, including monthly aperitivos and brainstorming sessions. More events are planned on career growth and development, inter-agency exchange and collaboration.

If you would like to join as a member or have any questions, please reach out to young.un.rome@gmail.com.

Vienna

Young UN Vienna was established in December 2017. The hub is already working on initiatives such as the Young UN Talks (link to Young UN Talks page), Talent Management (link to Talent Mgt page), and the Young UN Global Conference (link to Young UN global conference page).

On 11 July 2018, representatives of Young UN Vienna met with Yury Fedotov, Director-General of the UN Office at Vienna and Executive Director of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). Mr. Fedotov expressed his support to Young UN and praised the network for its vision to promote positive change and work together to support the Secretary-General’s reforms and the 2030 Agenda.

Young UN Vienna invites colleagues from the entire UN family in Vienna to join the network. Please reach out to the Young UN Vienna Coordination Team at youngunviennacoordination@un.org.

New York

Young UN New York is the first hub where the initiative grew up before it expanded to other UN locations all over the world. It started in Spring 2016 when a group of young professionals expressed its will to organise brainstorming sessions and turn the dream of improving the UN from the inside into action.

The group has increased to reach hundreds of members from all entities represented in New York. It has met with many Senior Leaders among them, the Deputy Secretary-General, Amina Mohammed, and the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth, Jayathma Wickramanyake.

The initiative is regularly invited to the Career Development Roundtable conference (2016 in Helsinki and 2017 in Dublin) to share the latest achievements and new ways of collaborating. Young UN New York invites colleagues from the UN family in New York to join the network. If you would like to join as a member or have questions please reach out to young.un.info@gmail.com.
