UNA Northern Ireland
UNA Northern Ireland is a vibrant hub for UNA-UK members and branches.
In many areas UNA-UK members can join a local branch. These volunteer-run groups support our work by organising a diverse range of grass-roots activities. Ranging from speaker and fundraising events to film screenings and coffee mornings, these activities raise awareness and interest in the work of the United Nations at a local level across the country.
Branches have traditionally organised themselves by nation: Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and England, with England being divided into regions (London & South-East, Southern Counties, Eastern, Central and North-East).
UN Day 2012
For UN Day 2012, UNA Northern Ireland is encouraging dioceses and parishes to promote this year’s United Nations Day by praying for the United Nations and its work.
On Wednesday 24 October, recognition will be given to the ratification of the UN Charter which took place on 24 October, 1945. This day is marked each year around the world as United Nations Day.
UNA Northern Ireland would request that called to mind are people's unity as children of God and our individual responsibility to work together for peace and understanding among all.
UNA Northern Ireland would also ask for recognition of those groups and organisations whose goal it is to foster this unity nationally and internationally.
The purpose of the United Nations is to bring all nations of the world together to work for peace and development, based on the principles of justice, human dignity and the well-being of all people. It affords the opportunity for countries to balance global interdependence and national interests when addressing international problems.
