Promoting engagement with the U.N. locally since 1946
The San Diego Chapter, established in 1946, promotes engagement with the United Nations. Translating the global initiatives of the U.N. into local context, our volunteers raise local awareness about the international organization, draw direct correlation to U.N. impact and influences on local policies and realities.
Designed to provide guidance and function as a sounding board, the Youth Advisory Board has been the latest addition to our organization. We recognize the invaluable input our youth members and community partners bring to the discussion on local and global sustainability.
Our collaborations and partnerships are rooted in our strong belief in collective actions to solve the biggest challenge of our century: Shared Responsibility and Sustainable Development. We are proud partners of our locally diverse community and work closely with selected United Nations agencies.
Every year we commemorate the founding of the United Nations on October 24th. We highlight local efforts and best practices on sustainability in making our world a secure, just and inclusive one.

Do you believe in the power of collective action? You attended our programs and events and were excited about our dedicated volunteers that believe in Global Citizenship? Support our local efforts!
The Eleanor Roosevelt Human Rights Award is very special and personal to our Chapter. With the award, each year we recognize individuals that believe in the goals of the UN and effect positive, lasting change in their work.
We proudly collaborate with organizations and businesses from all sectors while living into UNA-USA San Diego’s mission to locally educate, advocate and mobilize for Sustainability, A Culture of Peace, and Global Citizenship. Interested in collaborating with us?
