The World Heritage Centre and the World Air League, a U.S.-based nongovernmental organization, will present an ambitious new partnership at UNESCO Headquarters on 24 September aiming to promote environmental protection and the use of lighter-than-air skyships as a means to reduce pollution and pressures caused by transportation. Tomorrow’s announcement will showcase the World Sky Race, one of the key components of the partnership.  

The Event is by invitation and open to interested parties upon request. Please contact J. Sullivan at j.sullivan@unesco.org for more information.
