UU-UNO Intergenerational Spring Seminar

Instilling in UU youth and adults a commitment to global engagement and the skills to take action locally to address global issues.

Registration is Open!

The cost of Early Registration (December 2 - February 3) for all attendees is $375. Regular registration is open February 4 - March 2 at an increased rate. This year we have a new model in which all attendees pay the same rate, regardless of age. This adjustment moves the Seminar towards being more sustainably funded, with all costs shared between attendees.

Apply by January 27 for a reduced registration rate. 

With a deep passion for and commitment to international human rights, youth and adults from all over North America gather annually for our three day seminar to dig deeply into issues with global impact.

The intergenerational seminar is an opportunity to collaborate with others while learning how to be a global activist. Through workshops, peer and expert-led panel discussions, community building activities, and worship services, you will undergo a transformative process of learning, reflection, and growth while exploring some of the most challenging issues facing humanity today.

Housing and Travel

The 2020 Intergenerational Spring Seminar will take place in New York City. Youth and their adult Sponsors will be housed at a hostel in Manhattan. Here we have lodging options for non-Sponsor adults and tips for transportation to and from venues.

All In For Climate Justice: People, Power, Planet

Addressing the 2020 theme, participants will consider both local and global engagement with issues such as the intersectionality of the climate justice conversation and learning skills to organize their communities strategically for climate justice.

Youth at Spring Seminar

The UU-UNO's Intergenerational Spring Seminar is open to anyone age 14 and up, and typically around half of all participants are youth. Safety is our top priority—all youth attending the seminar must be accompanied by an adult Sponsor.
