United Nations 2023 Immersion Programme (Funded to Geneva)
UNITAR is excited to announce that it will be organizing two week-long trips to Geneva, Switzerland during the summer. These visits will provide an excellent opportunity for individuals to deeply engage with the city that houses the primary UN offices and gain direct exposure to the workings of the United Nations. People from all over the world are invited to apply for the 2023 editions of the United Nations Immersion Programme.
If participants who have registered for the field visit to Geneva are unable to travel to Switzerland this summer due to COVID-19-related travel restrictions, they have the option to participate in the United Nations Online Immersion Programme at no cost. This allows them to still engage with the United Nations and its activities remotely, providing an alternative experience in light of the travel limitations.
