The United Nations System Staff College was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 2001 in Turin, Italy, to foster a cohesive leadership and management culture for the entire UN system. Located on the UN’s only residential campus, UNSSC Headquarters, enjoys a beautiful natural setting, right on the river Po and opening onto the Valentino Park. The complex was originally built by the Italian government in 1961 to celebrate the centenary of Italy’s unity. In 1861, Turin was united Italy’s first capital.
The buildings represented the nation’s different regions and are configured in the shape of a boot. Gifted to the UN in 1964, the campus - now organized into five clusters, representing the world's continents - welcomes people from all over the world to live and learn together in a stimulating international environment. Purpose-built rooms and state-of-the-art equipment help to maximize learning and knowledge-sharing.
The workshop will take place in Pav. Italy.
Besides the UNSSC, the UN Turin Campus hosts other 2 UN learning institutions: the ITC-ILO and UNICRI.
