Over 1 000 people visited the United Nations exhibition stand mounted by UN Communications Group (UNCG) at a joint UN-The Space Indaba held on Friday 16 November in Harare.
UNIC collected the books, fliers and publications from the agencies and mounted and manned the display for this day-long event. People of different backgrounds visited the UN stand.
The publications were mainly popular with secondary schools, university and public libraries and also researchers and government officials. Secondary schools were mainly interested in the history and structure of the United Nations, which is part of their syllabus. University students and graduates were primarily interested in the book entitled ‘Employment Opportunities’ within the United Nations.
UN Agencies also displayed photographs, reports and other materials highlighting their collaboration with donor agencies in this country. The indaba, which was held under the theme Looking back to the future was aimed at engaging Youth on the 2030 Agenda. During the indaba, UN Heads of Agencies participated in more than five debates focusing on the SDGs.
More than 34 foreign missions accredited to Zimbabwe exhibited at the Fair.
