UNYANET organizes regular online seminars on a variety of topics, often in cooperation with its partners. These webinars are free of charge for all UNYANET Member Associations, Observers and Partners. They usually take place on the last Wednesday of a month at 15.00 GMT. During the approximately one-hour-long session, highly recognized guestspeakers address the audience in a short keynote speech, before experts provide an introduction to the topic which is followed by a Q&A. After that, all participants have the opportunity to share information and best practices from their association and home country or to engage in an active and lively debate.
