On May 1st 2017, UN City officially opened its doors to primary school children.
#UNCity4schools introduces students aged 6-16 to the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals through six different themes that include different games and activities that transform the students into active and engaged global citizens.
As an educator, you can visit #UNCity4Schools as a part of a theme about the Sustainable Development Goals or the UN, but you are also free to visit us without you or your students having any prior knowledge of the UN or the Sustainable Development Goals.
All visits are two hours long and are always free of charge. Read more about our different themes and book your visit below.
