WELCOME TO UNIS-UN
Welcome to the UNIS-UN Website! Our goal as an organization is to provide an educationally and intellectually enriching experience for our peers from around the world while promoting globalism and cross-cultural exchange.
We host an annual conference relating to a contemporary global issue. We invite expert and engaging speakers that are well versed on the topic who present to our audience of 700 high school students from International Schools from 5 continents. For the past 40 years it has been held in the General Assembly Hall at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City.
To the end of promoting global awareness and cross-culturalism, the annual themes are always ones of global importance. Over three hundred students from all over the world are invited to attend in addition to the upper classes at the United Nations International School. This is our second year that there will be a half day international celebration featuring international performances and a cultural showcase in the Sylvia Howard Fuhrman Auditorium at UNIS.
Upcoming 2017 CONFERENCE
Your Executive Committee is excited to announce that this year's conference will be titled Migration: Crossing the Line! We will examine varying perspectives on the issues surrounding migration: the causes, individual experiences as well as the political and humanitarian responses to migration. While we may not find express answers to these issues, we hope to lead a discussion that can result in a deeper understanding of global migration. Stay tuned for more updates!
