The voice of young people at the United Nations
Every year, three young people are given the opportunity to represent Swiss young people at the United Nations. These youth representatives take part in international conferences as members of the Swiss UN delegation. All year round they also carry out activities to raise awareness about UN topics among young people in Switzerland. In doing so, they encourage young people to play an active part in international politics.
The Youth Reps volunteer for a period of two years. During the first year, they represent Swiss young people internationally. During the second year, they act as coaches for their successors.
