”UNYA Talks” is an expert talk series focusing on the work of the United Nations within specific areas of expertise. The aim is to educate young students on the United Nations connection to their areas of studies and inspire them to use their education to help those in need. The nature of the United Nations allows for and encourages young professionals from all backgrounds to engage in the global community and support international development.

UNYA Talks Engineering will be specifically focused on the work of the United Nations in relation to engineering, ranging from environmental engineering projects to national and regional infrastructure systems. Through expert talks by United Nations experts within engineering, representing their respective organisations, this UNYA Talks seeks to inspire young people to see the opportunities of their area of expertise in relation to international development and humanitarian work.
