The United Nations System Staff College is happy to invite you for the UN Summer Academy 2015 edition, which will take place from 8 to 12 June 2015 at UN Headquarters in New York, celebrating "The UN at 70".
Ideas are among the UN's most important contributions, and the organisation has led the way with many, notably in development thinking, setting goals, statistics, the environment, supporting equitable economic relations, peace and security, human rights and human development. Nurturing ideas therefore constitutes an essential ingredient for a continuing successful United Nations Organisation, and the UN Summer Academy serves as a catalyst thereof.
The UN Summer Academy offers executive education, learning and knowledge exchange to those working for the United Nations and those who actively engage with the UN system in their daily lives. It combines academic rigour with cutting edge thinking, builds on a renowned faculty and is one of the few UN learning events open to UN staff, diplomats, civil society and private sector representatives alike.
Participation in the 2015 edition of the UN Summer Academy will provide an ideal opportunity to reflect upon the mandate and contributions of the United Nations since its inception, while discussing its current and future role in a rapidly changing environment. The UN Summer Academy offers an engaging five-day programme, ensuring rich interaction between peers and faculty, participation in solution oriented practical clinics, and discussions on issues of relevance to the work of the United Nations and its partners.
We look forward to welcoming you in New York for what promises to be another inspiring UN Summer Academy!
