.

We are extremely proud to be part of the upcoming twenty-sixth session of the Governing Council of UN-Habitat (GC26), that will take place on 8 – 12 May 2017, at the UN Habitat Headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya. The Governing Council is an intergovernmental decision – making body for UN Habitat, the United Nations Agency on Cities and Human Settlements. 
This session of the Governing Council follows the adoption of the New Urban Agenda during the Habitat III Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development held in Quito, Ecuador in October 2016. 
Participation in the Governing Council is open to all Member States and relevant stakeholders, including parliamentarians, civil society organizations, local authorities, professionals and researchers, academia, foundations, women and youth groups, trade unions, indigenous peoples organizations, financial institutions, and the private sector; as well as organizations of the United Nations system and Intergovernmental Organizations.

Our President Luisa Bravo was named for accreditation at the GC26 and was granted with an ad-hoc accreditation by Member States. In Nairobi, she will be an active participant, engaged in the discussion with governmental and local authorities and other stakeholders, contributing with an oral statement related to our commitment to implement contents of the New Urban Agenda related to public space, through our global campaign 'Stand up for Public Space!' and our academic journal 'The Journal of Public Space', that we founded in collaboration with the Queensland University of Technology and in partnership with UN Habitat.
