Address by Mr Higgins, President or Ireland, to Permanent Delegates during his visit to UNESCO on 19 February 2013.

President Higgins spoke about the emancipatory power of culture for laying the foundations of peace in a world undergoing profound change, and he thanked UNESCO for providing an opportunity for peoples to come together. He underlined the importance of UNESCO's action “not just to build the defences of peace but to celebrate peace secured,” through education for all, the sciences, culture, communication and information.
