About United Netherlands
United Netherlands is an internationally oriented, student-led organization, that focuses on the world of international relations and diplomacy. We aim to create a platform where talented, ambitious and motivated young people challenge each other to develop their full potential as global citizens. Within this network of driven young people from diverse backgrounds, gaining skills and knowledge is key in preparation for global challenges to come.
Examples of our activities and programs include the accredited 10 EC United Nations and Multilateral Diplomacy course, and its corresponding delegation to Oxford University and Harvard University Model UN conferences; the Public Speaking Program; the High School Program.
Since its inception in 2004, the drive for excellence has never faded. We invite you to discover the world of United Netherlands.
