What We Do
Develop and implement a coordinated communications strategy for the country/countries they serve, together with the United Nations Country Team and local United Nations partners, to publicise priority issues and major observances and events.
Work with national and regional media in the country/countries where they operate, to provide background briefings and press materials, arrange interviews and organise media conferences, as well as to place op-eds and feature articles.
Create campaigns in partnership with non-governmental organisations and private sector entities to promote key UN issues.
Engage with the public
Inspire action and engage audiences on UN priority issues by connecting with the public in their local language. Whether on social media, websites, printed information or radio programmes, customized content and translations by UNICs provide a local flavour to global issues.
UN Observances and Anniversaries
Organise and participate in observances of international days, years, and decades involving local dignitaries, workshops, seminars, educational programmes, sporting events, film screenings, on-line events and musical performances.
Hold regular briefings for students on the issues that will impact their futures, in schools and universities. UNICs also work with educators to help develop UN related curricula for classroom use, and organise and conduct Model UN conferences.
