Save the Date! 2023 Spring Seminar: April 1-3, 2023

The Unitarian Universalist Office at the United Nations is excited to announce that the 2023 Intergenerational Spring Seminar will take place April 1-3, 2023, with the theme "Demilitarization & Abolition: Resist Policing and Empire."

The event will be in-person in Minneapolis, MN, with online participation options. More details to follow, but put it on your calendars now!

Why Minneapolis?

The past few years of online-only Spring Seminars have shown us that we can connect with the UN, and with issues of global concern, from anywhere in the world. For 2023, we wanted to try holding the event closer to the middle of the continent, in the hope that a more geographically diverse community can attend. And given this year's theme of Demilitarization & Abolition, we want to learn from movement leaders in Minneapolis who have been on the front lines of resisting police and empire.

The Intergenerational Spring Seminar, hosted by the UUA Office at the UN aims to instill in Unitarian Universalist youth and adults a commitment to global engagement and the skills to take action locally to address global issues.

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.

The Seminar is open to anyone age 14+, and youth make up a large proportion of participants. Safety is our top priority; all attendees should be familiar with our online safety guidelines for youth and intergenerational events.
