The United Nations Association, London and South East Region (UNA LASER) is a democratic organisation covering about 30 local and university branches of UNA-UK, the country’s foremost advocate for UK actions at the UN and a critical friend of the UN system.
LASER works with UNA-UK to support our branches in their local activities and we organise regional meetings on issues of current concern in the UN system. We believe that a strong, credible and effective UN is essential if we are to build a safer, fairer and more sustainable world, and we advocate strong UK government action to strengthen the UN.
"Our vision is a future in which every young person has the skills, confidence and opportunity to achieve decent work. We value the ideas, voices and goals of youth, understanding that young people want the opportunities to take an active role in their society. Our mission is to improve the livelihoods of young people in the developed and developing world through employability and entrepreneurial trainings."
"Making the case for an effective United Nations. We are the only charity in the UK devoted to building support for the UN amongst policymakers, opinion-formers and the public."
