A Different Model

At UNYA we have a different organisational philosophy. Though we have the traditional board – secretariat structure, we encourage ALL members to come up with projects that they are passionate about. Everyone is welcome to start their own working group, be it under a thematic area related to the Sustainable Development Goals like Equality (SDG 10), or under a specific skill set that members want to develop, for instance by creating a magazine or an event like a case competition. Our approach has received overwhelming enthusiasm from volunteers and has led to the creation of numerous successful projects, events, and collaborations. (calendar link coming soon)
