ABOUT UN HOUSE SCOTLAND
Communication, Collaboration and Contribution
United Nations House Scotland (UNHS) is a civil society organisation committed to strengthening the implementation of the UN goals and values at grassroots levels. We do this by promoting, supporting, bridging, encouraging innovative engagement, building awareness, monitoring outcomes and being approachable.
UNHS was founded in 2012 by the charity Caledonia International Development Trust (CIDT) and officially opened by the Minister for External Affairs and International Development on 17 September in that same year. UNHS now proudly operates under the umbrella of the United Nations Association Scotland.
For every person to be actively engaged with the values and goals of the United Nations: Human Rights, Sustainable Development, Peace and Security.
To strengthen and develop the engagement between people and the goals and values of the United Nations by creating an environment of opportunities for collaboration, communication and contribution.
UN House promotes connections between representatives above, particularly when concerned with collective movement towards strengthening international peace and security.
Chatham House Rule based seminars produce world class policy advice helping increase understanding and communication. UN House believes this strategy actively reduces the likelihood of conflict escalation.
