  1. My country Guinea Conackry is not part of this association, and we have our student union in Nigeria. I am presently the national president and would love to register us.

  2. Its really amazing that the UNYANET is creating this great platform to harness Networking and Partnership among the world’s youth. I think that is the way to solving most of our predicaments. UNYANET should be active voice for the voiceless youth in the world.

    Also, UNYANET should go beyond only youth organizations that are recognized by the UN so that more and more youth organizations can join.

    Merci, UNYANET.

    • Dear Mohammed Harmis Huzair

      Thank you for your comment. UNYANET members do have to have NGO status with the United Nations to be member but legally established associations. The aim of the network is to connect United Nations Youth Associations as well as UNA Youth Section from all around the world.

      • Dear Daniel Hardegger,
        Thank you so much for the reply. Your points have been well noted and understood but it’s just that I am very passionate when it comes to issues about the youth that I want to involve all youth in the world.

        I am basing my argument on the fact that, I know certain individuals who want to join in the social change process and are already doing something in their own small way but do not belong to any of the UN partnered Organizations. Thank you, though for the thorough education. I also know that you are preventing illegality and fraud, which is right but comes with a lot of question marks.

  3. Hi,

    Its great pleasure getting to know that there are great teams out there aimed at helping the Youth especially given the rampant unemployment in the world which may eventually contribute to increase in crime rates among others.

    keep up the good work.

  4. it is really great having the youth together to make meaningful decisions regarding the world. The world is a place for both the old the the young and in no distance time it will be govern or ruled by the youth and the wrong decision by the old will affect the world tomorrow.

    Thanks to the UNYANET

    REGARDS
