It was such an honor to be a guest of the @unitednations@ungeneva yesterday! 🙏🏻 Thank you so much for making my visit and our meeting so bespoke and special! One of the most incredible places I have ever visited and I am so excited for what’s to come! 🕊🌎🇺🇳💙😊 | #unitednations#UNgeneva
Anna and Paula, enrolled in our LLM in IHL and Human Rights, will participate in the oral rounds of the Mandela Moot Court @worldmoot will take place at the Palais des Nations from 15 to 19 July 2019. A first for the Geneva Academy!
They will take over this space for the duration of the competition to give us news and updates about their participation. Good luck to them and to all the other teams!
The Broken Chair sculpture opposite the entrance to the United Nations Office at Geneva. This giant chair with a broken leg was originally conceived to urge nations to ban land mines and cluster bombs, and continues to serve as a reminder to the world's nations to protect and aid civilian victims.

On Mr. Møller’s last day as @ungeneva Director-General, the SHP team thanks him for his continuous support to the Strategic #Heritage Plan project since its conception in 2013. It has been an honor and pleasure to work with such a visionary leader on this amazing project. While we will miss him, we reiterate our commitment and dedication to the project and to UNOG. We wish Mr. Møller the very best on his new adventure and look forward to welcoming him to the new permanent #building next year and to the renovated #PalaisdesNations in 2024.

Il nous manquera mais nous réitérons notre engagement et détermination au service du projet et de l’ONUG. Nous souhaitons à M.

Today is the last day of Michael Møller as Director-General of the UN Office at Geneva.
I’ve had the chance to photograph him quite a number of times over the past three years, mostly shaking hands and delivering speeches, which didn’t seem to me like it was his favorite part of the job.
What he seemed to enjoy most was rather to move and shake this old and honorable organization, and to bring it up to speed with what our world looks like today.
All I can say for sure is that he’s always had either a word or a smile for the people working around him, including myself.
He’ll be missed by many at the Palais des Nations, including by the security staff, who threw him a little goodbye celebration this morning.
#LeSaviez -Vous? Il existe une salle dédiée au Maroc 🇲🇦 au sein du Palais des Nations 🇺🇳 😍
La Salle S4 appelée Salle Marocaine ou Salon Marocain depuis sa rénovation et son aménagement par le Royaume du Maroc en 2011 est l'une des rares salles dédiées à un Etat au sein du Palais des Nations des Nations Unies à Genève @ungeneva.
Moderne et équipée de technologies audiovisuelles avancées pour les besoins des conférences et des réunions, la salle adopte une #MoroccanTouch où s'intègrent harmonieusement des éléments authentiques ou revisités de l'artisanat marocain. Elle est entièrement décorée de bois de cèdre sculpté avec des fournitures de bureau en marroquinerie - le mot provient de Maroc d'ailleurs -. Cette salle résume bien le savoir-faire et le raffinement de l'artisanat marocain. #SalleMarocaine#SalonMarocain
Welcome to the 'Moroccan Room', one of the most distinct meeting rooms in the #PalaisdesNations . Here is a detail of the room’s intricate ceiling centerpiece.
The room owes its name to the Kingdom of Morocco 🇲🇦 responsible for its 2011 renovation. The designer created a space that emanates an authentic aura of Moroccan culture and represents the country's craftsmanship. This is exemplified by the cedar wood and plaster interior, coupled with the copper and leather details arranged in accordance with the rules of traditional and contemporary arts. The meeting room is also equipped with state of the art audiovisual technology. 📷 UN Photo/ Sophie Timmermann #ungeneva#un#unitednations
Nineteen years ago I visited Geneva🇨🇭for the first time and top on my list was to visit the UN 🇺🇳 but I met a French boy and went on a date instead. I guess you could say that the date went well. I finally made it back today with our two big kids! They loved learning all about it and had fun practising their submissions to the General Assembly in both English and French. #peace#security#humanrights#globalkids#bilingualkids#palaisdesnations#unitednations

City Recommendation: So a couple weeks ago some of you guys asked for some recommendations on where to go. So here’s one of my fave places! Geneva, Switzerland is a relatively small city in the south west part of Switzerland but its absolutely gorgeous. It’s placed right on the beautiful Lac de Genevé and surrounded by the cascading peaks of the Swiss alps. Some of my fave things were taking a short cruise out onto the lake, eating traditional Swiss fondue, touring the Palais de Nations Genevé, witnessing the famous Jet D’eau water fountain, riding up the aero car to the top of Mont le Blanc, and paddle boating on the lake. Besides these sights, Geneva has a lot to offer! There are a ton of cafes and awesome little restaurants placed on street corners. Since I’m a nerd, I absolutely loved the architecture and street design. I also have some practical tips. The first would be to stay in a hotel sightly outside the city. Hotels in the city are CRAZY expensive. And it’s super easy to get around using public transportation. In fact, if you are visitor and stay at a hotel or hostel, they will give you a free travel card valid for use on all public transport in and around the city for the duration of your trip! This is yet another reason to love Geneva. Another tip, actually a warning is that Geneva is very expensive. It’s actually one of the most expensive cities in the world so you might want to only spend a couple days there. But it’s also one of the safest cities! And the last tip is that most things close early in the night and may even be closed on Sundays so be mindful of your time! Overall I freakin love Geneva and know you’ll love it too! ⠀
Pictured is the famous Jet D’eau water fountain. It truly is an awesome sight! Although it looks like a natural geyser it’s actually a man-made water fountain. From basically any point in Genevé you can see this incredible feat.⠀
