  • The UN House is well positioned for international conferences. Offers a wide range of cultural and historic information. A good site to visit when in Geneva.
  • It's an amazing place where the whole world converges to find a community Human in the best interest of all humanity. The former President of Ireland and the Human Rights Council in Geneva amazingly championing Human Rights to this day is commendable!
