The 23rd Session of the UN-Habitat Governing Council

The Youth Advisory Board arrived in Nairobi, Kenya this weekend to participate in the 23rd session of the Governing Council.

Opening Assembly

Eager to contribute a youth perspective to the continuing dialogue on the rapid urbanization of global communities, we are ready to meet with member states and advance a collective youth perspective!

The morning opened with the daily youth caucus where youth have dedicated space to meet and strategize on common objectives.  YAB would love to meet with any youth who are attending the GC and are available to discuss any questions or concerns!

The opening session featured presentations by the President of the Republic of Kenya, President Mwai Kibaki, and the Executive Director of UN-Habitat, Mr. Joan Clos, with an opening performance by the local musical group “Ghetto Classic.”

We look forward to an informative and productive week!
