Dialogue and Civic Spaces
The hbs contributes to democratic governance and social cohesion in the region through advancing civic and political spaces for dialogue. We partner with civil society, academia, private sector and decision makers from the region and beyond to discuss pertinent issues with regards to political, social and economic developments affecting the region. We work with youth to explore and engage in alternative forms of politics towards a more democratic future; and support civic actors to leverage new approaches to protect and advance spaces for democratic practice.
'Uwaga,' a music video, aimed to inspire Kenyans to stand up to police brutality by demonstrating the power of unity and reimagining a nation based on equality and justice. Uwaga, which stars Juliani, Flawless Konya, Mugureness, Anthem Republiq, and Abudabi Tembekali, was created in collaboration with the Missing Voices coalition, of which hbs Nairobi is a member.
