United Nations Head Quarters

While I had reservations about this visit, due to my own personal issues with the United Nations (UN), there is no doubt that its head quarters would impress even the greatest skeptic. Along with my fellow participants, we were taken on a short tour, before attending a Panel on Youth and Peacebuilding. A quote that got my ears perked came from the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon who called us “…the last generation that can avert the worst impacts of climate change”, something I fully agree with.

Remarks By Mr. Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser UN High Representative for the Alliance of Civilizations opening the panel discussion can be found here
