On this week's episode, Rheal Leblanc explains the cultural events that you can attend at the Palais des Nations this week, including the exhibition “Migratory Birds”, which  opens today. This is in collaboration with artist Atilla Can, who uses a technique called water marbling. The exhibition is a commentary on migrant children. (Exhibition on until 16 February.)

Tuesday 6th Feb is the International Day of Zero Tolerance to Female Genital Mutilation and there will be many activities worldwide.

Finally we take a brief glance at the press conference from the humanitarian coordinator for Libya, Maria do Valle Ribeiro, taking place tomorrow and talking about the humanitarian response plan 2018.
