We hope that this holiday season brings warmth, light and love. As we head into the new year, the United Nations Association would like to demonstrate our gratitude with our Annual Membership Luncheon. We are still finalizing details, but we know that we will be celebrating our members on January 23rd.

At this important meeting we will review 2015, look forward to 2016 and officially nominate and elect board members for the coming year. We still have board positions available, so if you or anyone you know is interested in contributing a little time and a lot of expertise please reach out to us at : info@unaseattle.org.

Club UN will resume lively debate on world issues in January 2016!  Please check back often for updates on location and topic.


Join us on the last Wednesday of each month for Club UN, a social event where individuals interested in the work of the United Nations, human rights, and other social issues can gather and discuss.

Join our Meetup group: http://www.meetup.com/Club-UN/ for more information.

On October 28, 2015, at 6:00 pm, we are meeting at the Café Allegro in the University District.

The topic: Transition from MDG to SDG.

This month we will be discussing the transition from the Millennium Development Goals to the Sustainable Development Goals.  We will seek to identify how and where the MDGs were successful, how and where they failed , and how to improve upon them for the next steps of implementing the SDGs.  Of particular concern: Are the SDGs, now expanded to 17 goals, too ambitious?  How will individual nations react to what will likely be labeled as an infringement on their sovereignty?  What assurances can the UN promote to assuage such concerns?
