UNYA Talks Engineering

November 23, 2016 @ 18:00 - 21:00

Want to learn more about what engineering means within the UN? Where you fit into the UN system with your engineering background? How you can play a role in improving lives and helping those in need all over the world?

Then come to UNYA Talks Engineering (in collaboration with IDA Young Professionals) on November 23rd 2016 at 18:00-21:00 at IDA in Copenhagen.

”UNYA Talks” is an expert talk series focusing on the work of the United Nations within specific areas of expertise. The aim is to educate young students on the United Nations connection to their areas of studies and inspire them to use their education to help those in need. The nature of the United Nations allows for and encourages young professionals from all backgrounds to engage in the global community and support international development.

UNYA Talks Engineering will be specifically focused on the work of the United Nations in relation to engineering, ranging from environmental engineering projects to national and regional infrastructure systems. Through expert talks by United Nations experts within engineering, representing their respective organisations, this UNYA Talks seeks to inspire young people to see the opportunities of their area of expertise in relation to international development and humanitarian work.

This event is a collaboration between IDA Young Professionals (IDA YP) and UNYA (United Nations Youth Association)
