Mr Boris Trajanov, a renowned opera singer, was appointed UNESCO Artist for Peace in February 2005, in recognition of his commitment to the defense of humanistic values and the promotion of dialogue between cultures and civilizations.

He is widely regarded as one of the best interpreters of the role of Scarpia in Puccini's Tosca. His wide repertoire contains the most important roles from Verdi's operas, such as Nabucco and Conte di Luna.

In his capacity as a UNESCO Artist for Peace, he contributed to the creation of Tree Day in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia to help reforest the country and raise ecological awareness. Over 2 million saplings were planted during the first edition of this day through the participation of 200,000 people.
