  • UNATT means the United Nations Association of Trinidad and Tobago. It is a voluntary organisation.

  • UNATT’s precursor, the Friends of the United Nations of Trinidad and Tobago (FOUNTT), began in December 1992 with Mr Louis Wiltshire, High Commissioner for Trinidad and Tobago to CARICOM, as its President.

  • UNATT was officially launched on UN Day, October 24, 1996, effectively replacing FOUNTT.

  • UNATT aids the United Nations Information Centre for the Caribbean Area (UNIC) with its responsibility of promoting wider public understanding of the aims and activities of the UN System in Trinidad and Tobago through discourses and articles on UN matters.

  • Membership in UNATT is open to individuals who are 18 years and over.

  • UNATT is a member of the World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA), the only international, non-governmental organisation devoted entirely to the support and principles of the United Nations Charter. It was founded in 1946.

  • There are four other UNAs in the Caribbean. They are located in the Bahamas, Barbados, Guyana and Jamaica.

  • During the period October 2010 – October 2011, UNATT, with the assistance of the United Nations Development Programme, Global Environmental Facility\Small Grants Programme, completed a project “Mainstreaming Alternative Energy in Secondary Schools” to introduce secondary school students to alternative energy by installing solar panels to power computers and solar distillation units that they may use regularly. The schools were; Trinity College, Moka, Speyside High School, Tobago, Mayaro Composite School, Barataria South Secondary, Arima Senior Comprehensive, El Dorado East Secondary and Presentation College, San Fernando.

  • In 2015 the Renewable Energy Project, an initiative spearheaded by the United Nations Association of Trinidad and Tobago (UNATT), funded by the UNDP, Global Environment Fund (GEF) Small Grants Programme (SGP) was launched. This programme seeks to mainstream renewable energy among the nation's young people by installing solar generating systems in secondary schools and community organisations across the country. In keeping with UNATT's mission of being the bridge between the United Nations and the people of Trinidad and Tobago, this project aligns with the UN's agenda to address climate change and sustainable living for the global population.
