Working committees

The call for working group applications for the year 2019 is group-specific and will be opened when a new group is founded. Participating in team work will give you an outlook for the activities in the UN Youth on national and international level. If you are an active young person, you are welcome to come along!

More information on work groups and activities for the year 2019 will be uploaded on this page and the same information can also be found on our social media channels, such as Facebook.
