About the Programme

The United Nations Youth Delegate Programme was created in 1980s with the intention of empowering youth and including them in global decision-making processes. Since then, Member States have been sending youth representatives to various UN bodies. 

In 1995, the World Programme of Action for Youth (A/Res/50/81) adopted a clause inviting Member States „once again, to include, whenever possible, youth representatives in their delegations to the General Assembly and other meetings of relevant United Nations bodies, with a view to stimulating the participation of young women and men in the implementation of the Programme of Action”. Ever since, participation in the programme has been growing.


Roles and Duties

Youth Delegates primarily represent their respective country's youth at relevant sessions of the United Nations as "spokespersons", however the scope of their activities extend far beyond that. They raise awareness on youth-related issues, offer counsel to governments and work on establishing youth cooperations with each other. 

Youth Delegates also play a key role in promoting and introducing main principles adopted by the UN, such as sustainability, to the youth of the world. They often offer practical advice to young people seeking help in running or launching UN-related youth projects too. The delegates are also known as lobbyists for youth rights and interests, such as the inclusion of young people in decision-making processes.

Ms. Widad Brimo

Widad Brimo is the Senior Youth Delegate of Hungary to the United Nations in 2024.

„I've always been fascinated by diplomacy and international relations, and I've always admired the power of community. I am happy to be able to contribute to the common good as a youth delegate and to represent young Hungarians with the help of my fellow delegate Annamari.”

Widad Brimo graduated from University of Szeged, Faculty of Law and Political Sciences with a Bachelor's degree in International Studies, a Master's degree in International Studies (in English) and is currently a second-year PhD student at University of Szeged, Doctoral School of Law and Political Sciences. Her research focuses on cultural diplomacy, with an emphasis on cultural institutions and the role of women in diplomacy. She is also a participant in the Mathias Corvinus Collegium Women Public Leadership Program.

In the summer of 2021, she participated as a selected fellow in the European Public Law Organization Migration Summer School (EPLO Migration Summer School). In the 2nd semester of the academic year 2021-2022, she was an intern in the framework of the NRTI-EPLO cooperation. Due to her outstanding academic achievements, she was awarded the Diploma Prima Prize by her faculty. During her undergraduate years, Widad was a member and secretary of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Students’ Union of her university, where a UN Model Conference was organised on several occasions. Later, she joined the International Diplomatic Student Assosiation (now HEAD Franchise), where she was able to participate in lectures with diplomats, researchers and public leaders.

The need to work for the community was formed in her from an early age, thanks to her dual national identity. On her father's side, she is of Syrian origin and spent a large part of her childhood in Aleppo. In addition to the values she brought from Syria, Hungarian culture has also played a significant role in her life, as she has been folk dancing in Kiskunfélegyháza since the age of six and in Szeged since 2017. Through Hungarian tradition-keeping, she has learned about folk music, folk tales, holidays and traditions, which are an integral part of her everyday life. 

Among her priorities as an ambassador are gender equality and the role of culture. It is important for her that Hungarian culture reaches the UN forums and that Hungarian youth living in Hugary and beyond become more educated. An excellent way to achieve this is to organise and implement cultural programmes and projects. She also aims to contribute to the realisation of gender equality and to help young women to access as many opportunities as possible.

Ms. Annamaria Wettstein

Annamária Wettstein is Hungary's junior youth delegate to the United Nations in 2024.

Annamária is a student at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), where she studies International Social and Public Policy with Politics. She has been awarded the Stipendium Peregrinum Presidential Scholarship for her studies.

Since high school, she has been involved in engaging youth in public discourse and developing debate culture. After winning first place in the National Youth Council debate competition, she co-founded a debate club at the Deák Square Lutheran Gymnasium. She has organized and moderated numerous public discussions, strengthening the dialogue between young people and decision-makers. She was one of the main organizers of the Youth Conference on the Future of Europe (IKEJ), resulting in proposals from Hungarian youth reaching the European Parliament and European MPs.

In addition, she is committed to supporting disadvantaged youth. Over the past three years, she has actively volunteered with local NGOs, mentoring young people living in deep poverty. Currently, she works as a Student Ambassador at LSE, aiming to reach disadvantaged youth through the university's Widening Participation program.

During the summer, as a scholarship recipient of the Hungary Foundation, she interned at one of the most influential American political research institutes, the American Enterprise Institute in Washington D.C., focusing primarily on public policy and technological policy analysis, as well as creating educational online content, including podcasts.

Before her internship at AEI, Annamária worked at Case Solvers, a Hungarian Forbes 30 under 30 startup, contributing to the development of problem-solving skills in high school students. Her commitment to sustainable development also led to her selection for the UN Sustainable Lifestyles and Education program.

In addition to her university studies, she is dedicated to strengthening the community of Hungarian students studying abroad and is a member of the organizing committee of the LSE Hungarian Society. A major project she was involved in was an event co-hosted with the Hungarian Embassy in London, focusing on debate and bridge-building between decision-makers and young people.

As a junior delegate in 2024, her goal is to support Widad Brimo, the senior delegate. Within her program, she focuses on addressing and representing disadvantaged young women and community building and organizing cultural events among Hungarian students studying abroad.

Mr. Domokos Péter Kovács

Domokos Péter Kovács, Youth Delegate of Hungary to the United Nations 2022

For Domokos, the strength of the community has been important to him since he was 10 years old thanks to water polo. He spent his school years at a Waldorf school and then at a German ethnic minority school. At the Friedrich Schiller German Nationality High School in Pilisvörösvár, it was important for him to be an active member of student life. He deepened his knowledge of German in the debate club and then he visited Germany several times thanks to scholarships. Together with his fellow students, he joined the European Parliament's Ambassadors' School program and organized selective waste collection for his school. After high school, he began his studies at the University of Passau with a scholarship from the German state and became a volunteer and then a member of the Association for German-Hungarian Youth. In the summer of 2019, he attended the Purdue Eyetem at the Benjamin Franklin Transatlantic Institute as a U.S. State Department fellow. Its cooperation with the American Embassy in Budapest is still strong, thanks to which Domokos has implemented selective waste collection in several Hungarian schools and will currently help schools in the Tisza region. As a member of the National Student Council, he started a good partnership with the National Youth Council of Hungary, with which he will also work closely during his delegation.

In the next year, it will take its good practice to as many places as possible so that schools can organize separate waste collection. He also wants to raise awareness of the waste pollution of the Tisza through sports, so he is planning a Sustainability Water Polo tournament. He also wants to get to know the situation of Hungarian young people abroad, but he also considers it important to present the national minorities living in Hungary. The role of the envoy still holds many unexpected things for him, but he wants to be able to actively represent Hungarian youth everywhere and to achieve “tangible” results thanks to his projects.

He regularly reports on the UN Youth Delegate Program and keeps a diary on Facebook and Instagram, as well as on hunyouth.hu.

You are welcome to inquire about the program and contact Domokos at hello@hunyouth.hu.
