It's probably in the nature of a UN conference that you have a range of UN agencies presenting their information stalls. Presumably, these agencies support their respective causes at conferences on a regular basis. Their presence at APUF-5 is of course necessary and important. However, at CityScapes, we’re traditionally more interested in the view of young-and-fresh, small-but-growing, and therefore (arguably) more passionate projects. One of the most interesting and ambitious projects is certainly the Estonia-based organisation World Cleanup 2012.
