United Nations Association

Categories: Peace

United Nations Associations are non-governmental organizations that exist in various countries to enhance the relationship between the people of a member state and the United Nations. They are not a part of the UN itself. The UNA-UK is based at 3 Whitehall Court in Westminster so we imagine it was they who presented the tree just down the road from their offices to their local council.
