The WFUNA European UNAs Youth Meeting took place in Brussels, Belgium on the 25-26 November, 2013. 15 youth representatives from Armenia, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK gathered to discuss ways to strenghthen and enhance the impact of the WFUNA Youth Network. Youth representatives also had the opportunity to interact with UN and EU officials.
Youth representatives joined the general meeting for most of the time, but also had time to meet separetely. This time proved an opportunity for WFUNA to inform of its initiatives to promote the UN Youth Delegate Programme. Elise Zerrath and Denis Naets, UN Youth Delegates for Germany and Belgium respectively, talked about their experience as Youth Delegates and the importance of increasing youth participation at the UN.
