UN Association of Finland

The UN Association of Finland, or shortly UNA Finland, is a Non-Governmental Organization that promotes and supports the actions and principles of the United Nations.

UNA Finland was founded in 1954. We provide education and educational material on issues related to the United Nations and sustainable development, communicate about current topics related to UN issues in Finland, and influence Finnish UN policy.

The United Nations is the world's largest peace organization founded by an international treaty (The UN Charter) which aims to promote security, human rights, and development in various ways. We support these goals though our work - information sharing, education, and advocacy.

We have a consultative status at ECOSOC. We are not part of the official United Nations System, but an independent NGO.

Our work is supported by member and municipal organizations, of which there are about 70 at the moment. We also have a network of individual people interested in UN issues, which is open to everyone who supports the principles of the UN. The everyday activities of the Association are guided by a board of directors with representatives from member organisations.
