UN Geneva Seminars Series
The Information Service of the United Nations Office at Geneva organizes an annual seminar series to deepen the academic world's knowledge on the activities of the United Nations and on its priorities and challenges in the years to come.
Two seminars are organized every year and held at the Palais des Nations, over one or two days. They mainly target students and representatives of universities and research institutes.
Each seminar promotes a specific theme and comprises a series of lectures given by a panel of experts with various backgrounds (Representatives of NGOs, academies or administrations; experts from UN Agencies or independent experts) who will make presentations and then debate the issues with the participants.
The presentations and discussions may be held in English or French.
Following the seminar, a certificate of participation is awarded to students.
Next seminar is in February 2019!
19 February 2019 - 20 February 2019
Have you ever thought about the quality of the air you breathe? You can avoid drinking polluted water, but you can hardly stop breathing to avoid inhaling harmful pollutants. Air pollution impacts our health, environment and economy. It is paramount that we take action together – across sectors and national boundaries.
