Routes of Dialogue

Throughout history, peoples have exchanged cultural experience, ideas, values and goods through art, trade and migrations. 

Human history is the tale of such journeys. As we cross into the twenty-first century, we too have embarked on a journey – whose destination holds out the promise of justice, well-being and a peaceful existence for all.

These encounters, in which individual travellers or communities have conveyed their ideas and customs across whole continents and oceans, are celebrated in a series of UNESCO projects.
