The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) is a global nonprofit organization representing and coordinating a membership of over 100 national United Nations Associations.

#UNYACHAT is a way for United Nations Associations Youth Sections and United Nations Youth Associations to connect and talk about topics that are meaningful to them. It's also a way for like minded individuals and organizations, global citizens and people that share our vision of a "United Nations that is a powerful force in meeting common global challenges and opportunities" to get engaged and share their opinions on any UN related topic.

How does it work?

Just like any other Twitter chat! During one hour, the moderator will ask questions prefaced with Q1, Q2, Q3, etc. Everybody else taking part in the conversation should answer by prefacing each question with A1, A2, A3, etc. as to match each question.

Golden Rule: Always use the hashtag #UNYACHAT. If not, your tweet will get lost in Twitter space.

How many #UNYACHAT have you had so far?

The United Nations Youth Association of Denmark first came up with the idea of hosting a Twitter chat. Hence, #UNYACHAT was born!
