Young people should ensure their voices are included in global discussions on development issues.

That's the message of Dana Podmolikova from the Czech Republic, this year's outgoing member of the Youth Advisory Board for UN-Habitat.

The UN agency aims to increase youth participation and advocacy in sustainable urbanization and urban development.

Siobhán Garside asked Ms Podmolikova about the tasks she was involved in during her two years with UN-Habitat in Nairobi, Kenya.
