From 25 - 29 July 2016, WFUNA held its sixth Human Rights Youth program dedicated to building the capacity of young people from its network to implement human rights projects in their communities and engage effectively with UN human rights mechanisms. Twenty-four participants from all over the world attended five days of sessions, which included presentations from various diplomats, UN and NGO staff as well as two days of training in project management.

Monday – Introduction to the UN and to Human Rights
We welcomed the participants at the UN headquarters and Aziel Goulandris started the training with welcome remarks and an introduction of the training as a whole. Every participant introduced themselves, saying their names, where they are from, and what they wish to learn from this program. We then proceeded to a guided tour of the UN. The participants were fascinated seeing the significant conference rooms and listening to the history of the United Nations Office in Geneva.
