Meet people, do stuff.
United Nations Association

Promoting civil society engagement and activism in our community with the work of the UN, through journalism, podcasts, events and parliamentary lobbying.

United Nations Association St Andrews (UNAStA) is a student organisation at the University of St Andrews. 

We are a sub-branch of UN House Scotland and UNA Scotland, which are non-profits that act as a go-between for Scotland, Scottish Parliament, and the UN. By extension, we are therefore a sub-branch of UNA-UK, which is directly affiliation with the United Nations through its consultative status (with the UN). 

Within UNA, we have several key departments: Journalism, Podcast, POP (Parliamentary One-Pager), Events and Fundraising. The Journalism team writes long-form articles on international affairs for our partner publications in St Andrews. The Podcast team creates both and longer shows focusing on a theme, such as 'Why the UN Sucks', or 'Forced Migration and Intersectionality'. The Parliamentary One-Pager team research and write one-page briefings for Scottish MSPs, lobbying them on bills that are going through Parliament. The Events team organise formal, speaker events; the Fundraising team organise fun events aimed as raising money for the society as we are a non-profit. These include sports games, bake sales, and pub quizzes. 

Keep an eye out for our events, fundraisers, podcasts, POPs and articles over the coming year!
