UNA-UK SHROPSHIRE’s MISSION
To provide a forum for Shropshire’s citizens to discuss or debate international affairs, with particular reference to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
To draw the attention of UNA – UK to matters of concern to members and the wider public.
The Shropshire Branch was one of the original branches formed in 1945. It is based in Church Stretton and covers all locations. Members from the surrounding towns – Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Oswestry, Telford, Much Wenlock, Craven Arms including rural areas, are encouraged to participate in branch activities.
UNA Shropshire has traditionally worked with partners in the community; educational, private sector and other organisations with a social conscience.
UNA-UK has supported and reinforced such partnership by encouraging other branches to follow its lead. Social and environmental responsibilities are vital in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Local partnerships are on-going with Stretton Climate Care, Fairtrade, Churches Together, U3A, and UNICEF.
An effective way of paying tribute to the work of those who have gone before, is to continue to invest in their experience, and aim to develop an even better future.
We can learn from their passion and capabilities and adapt them to meet the present and future demands of the UN, UNA-UK and the Branch.
