United Nations Committee of New Canaan

Promoting Understanding, Tolerance and Education

The United Nations Committee of New Canaan believes our country and the world are best served by a vital and credible United Nations, led and supported by the U.S.  The Committee undertakes to broaden the community’s awareness of policy issues affecting both the U.S. and the UN, and to highlight the various peacekeeping and humanitarian activities of the UN.
The Committee also offers, from time to time, direct support to particularly deserving international humanitarian causes.
Annually on October 24th, the UN Committee, in conjunction with our Town, commemorates the founding of the United Nations by proclamation and the raising of the UN flag at Town Hall.
