    UN Talk & Tour Event : Employment For All- (How) Is It Possible? @ United Nations Nairobi
    Apr 25 @ 2:30 pm – 5:00 pm
    UN Talk & Tour Event : Employment For All- (How) Is It Possible? @ United Nations Nairobi

    The UN Nairobi hosts a monthly lecture/tours series, concentrating on one of the different Sustainable Development Goals every month.  The Sustainable Development Goals are the global agenda that the United Nations together with the countries of the world have given each other until 2030. Goal number 8 focuses on Decent Work and Economic Growth for all.

    During our Talk & Tour Event, we want to focus on two of the sub targets:

    1. By 2030, achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all women and men, including for young people and persons with disabilities, and equal pay for work of equal value
    2. By 2020, substantially reduce the proportion of youth not in employment, education or training

     Is it possible to achieve employment for all in Kenya? How can we make sure that especially our youth finds employment at the end of their education? You are invited to discuss with us! The International Labour Organization and the United Nations Visitors Service invite you to a talk on the topic “Employment for all – (how) is it possible?” and a subsequent tour through the UN Complex where we explain the history, structure and work of the United Nations.

    Please register for the event.
