AYLI is thrilled to announce its delegation to the UN's Habitat III Conference in Quito, Ecuador, next month.
The delegation will be led by alumnus Piet Ubels, who was a member of our delegation to UNEA II in Nairobi, Kenya, earlier this year. He will be joined by Luke Christensen, Charlotte Clouston, Natasha Eichler, Hannah Shingler, Mel Taylor, and Bruce Tsai - all of Auckland.
