Visiting the UN

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
I previously mentioned going to the UN buildings. It was really interesting going there, but I don't recommend going on the weekend. They seem to have a reduced staff, so there are no guided tours, only audio tours, and the information desk didn't seem to be staffed.

They had some displayers in the foyer including
  • the Haitian earthquake disaster and recovery effort
  • how climate change is affecting diverse communities
  • young peoples photographic display

The photos in the young peoples display were often extraordinarily good. They were asking people to reflect on their gender, and how it shapes them and hinders them.
