Internship at the UN Headquarters

The opportunity to work in the Division for Inclusive Development. Deadline: 18 March

Sport remains a firm fixture on the UN agenda. In the past two years, UN entities and other intergovernmental stakeholders have taken bold actions to promote attention to sport as a platform and a catalyst for sustainable development.   Just last year, Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres, issued a report to the UN General Assembly that outlined the growing attention to sport for development across the UN system, sporting community, and among Member States. 

DESA is excited to team up with international players charged to move forward on the agenda of sport for development and peace (SDP).  As of 2017, DESA has been playing an integral role in supporting Member States to move the agenda forward. Our work has focused on drawing the attention of Member States to the various tracks of engagement on sport for development and peace and supporting the mainstreaming of these tracks into relevant intergovernmental discussions in the General Assembly, the Economic and Social Council and its advisory bodies, and in the High-level Political Forum on sustainable development.

UN Headquarters are currently looking for interns to work in the Division for Inclusive Development (minimum 2 months, maximum 6 months) on social development issues including sport for development and peace. Start dates are flexible and the deadline of 18 March is fast approaching so apply now!
