Poster : Tenth Anniversary of the Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity

Celebration of the tenth Anniversary of the adoption of UNESCO Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity (2001-2011)
UNESCO organizes a special high level panel debate in the framework of the 36th General Conference, as well as an evening cultural diversity show to celebrate of the tenth Anniversary of the "2001 Declaration".

The Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity, proclaimed by UNESCO in 2001, is celebrating its first decade! This wide-ranging instrument represents a first for the international community, since it raises cultural diversity to the level of “the common heritage of humanity”, “as necessary for humankind as biodiversity is for nature”, and makes its defence an ethical imperative, inseparable from respect for human dignity.
On the occasion of this tenth anniversary, UNESCO is organizing an evening show with the Culture and Diversity Foundation, enabling us to see and hear the incubators of diversity with sensitivity and warmth, promoting a feeling of shared belonging to a diverse humanity.
The programme features a slide show of photographs by Patrick de Wilde, batucada music by the Sabatuc group, Cameroonian griots with the poet Alain Alfred Moutapam, traditional Peruvian dance, classical Khmer ballet, hip hop with the group Vagabond Crew, song with Yasmine Hamdan, China Moses and Raphaël Lemonnier, and the Russian group One World. A fashion show by designers Férouz Allali, Mike Sylla and Andrea Tello will close the evening.
