On 24 June 2010, UNESCO Director-General hosted the tenth annual meeting of UNESCO’s Goodwill Ambassadors at the Organization’s Headquarters in Paris, during which she designated the renowned Iraqi-born British architect Zaha Hadid as a UNESCO Artist for Peace.

Twenty-one of UNESCO’s Goodwill Ambassadors attended the day-long event where they discussed ways of promoting UNESCO’s programmes and activities around the world.  Other than sharing the day with Irina Bokova, the present Goodwill Ambassadors held meetings with UNESCO programme specialists and were given presentations regarding the Organization’s pressing priorities.
