Welcome to the website of the UNi-Gruppe!
The UNi-Gruppe was founded in 1988 and is associated with the United Nations Association of Germany (DGVN), chapter Berlin-Brandenburg. Since its foundation the UNi-Gruppe regularly is carrying out a wide range of activities and projects to inform about the United Nations and international politics including talks, seminars and lectures about the UN and UN simulations in schools and at universities.
The UNi-Gruppe is founding member of the United Nations Youth Association Germany(JUNON) and closely works together with other UN youth groups in Germany.
The UNi-Gruppe consists of four projects groups, which are briefly introduced below. Additionally there is a broad range of activities from the participation in international Model United Nations (MUN) and conferences to providing assistance for special events such as the visit of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to Berlin in February 2011. There are also regular social events for interested people to get to know each other and share their experiences.
Below you find a brief overview about the four project groups of the UNi-Gruppe and the contact details of the project coordinators. If you have any general enquiry or are not sure which of the project group you may contact, you are warmly welcome to contact the coordinators of the UNi-Gruppe via firstname.lastname@example.org.
