UNESCO participates in 20th International Cultural Heritage Show
Thanks to the generous support of the French National Commission and Ateliers d'Art de France, UNESCO will participate in the International Cultural Heritage Show at the Carrousel du Louvre, in Paris, France from 6 to 9 November. The Organization will have stand 30 during the four days and will present its activities in the culture sector, particularly concerning cultural heritage. UNESCO will also participate in a one-hour conference on Saturday 8 November from 3:45 to 4:45 pm.
The International Cultural Heritage Show will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year, and UNESCO is especially proud to be associated with the 2014 edition, given that heritage, creativity, savoir-faire and the diversity of cultural expressions are at the heart of UNESCO’s activities.As a specialized agency of the United Nations, UNESCO has a unique mandate in the field of culture: the challenge of showing that culture has an essential role to play, not only in today’s world, but especially in the world of tomorrow, as a driving force for development and a key milestone in forging a new and sustainable culture of development. The six culture Conventions of UNESCO work in this context, particularly the 1972 World Heritage Convention, the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, and the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions. UNESCO also has a voice in the international debate led by the United Nations regarding the role of culture in sustainable development, and the post-2015 agenda.
