About the Event

The UN Student Association Oslo are proud to organise and invite you to the second UN Theme Week 2019: Walk the Talk - the first festival of its kind to be arranged by a voluntary student organisation. Working alongside more than 20 collaborators during the festival, the events will certainly ensure a week filled with enticing debates, lectures, workshops, concerts and more.

Taking place in the vibrant city of Oslo from the 3rd to the 9th of March, the week will be dedicated to shedding light on important global issues that affect every aspect of our society. We invite you to join us in the conversation and in the increasingly important exchange of ideas. We are always looking for new people to join us in working towards the week. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or want to contribute in any way, please contact us.

Stay tuned for exciting updates!
