The History of Africa, like the history of humankind as a whole, is really the story of an awakening.

We need thorough understanding of the past to understand the present and prepare for a better future. This is why, since 1964, @UNESCO has been working to shift the context of the History of Africa, freeing it from racial prejudices & promoting an African perspective. Africa’s history told by Africans themselves.

And this is how UNESCO's General History of Africa initiative was born. The result is a unique 8 volumes work. It was the first of its kind to present the entire history of the African continent. And it contributes as well to one key target: passing the values of the History of Africa to the African Youth, priority for UNESCO

Would you know where to find the 'Moai 🗿' ?
Well, to find them you will have to go to a UNESCO World Heritage site, to Rapa Nui National Park, in Chile.
Rapa Nui, the indigenous name of Easter Island, bears witness to a unique cultural phenomenon. A society of Polynesian origin that settled there c. A.D. 300 established a powerful, imaginative and original tradition of monumental sculpture and architecture, free from any external influence. From the 10th to the 16th century this society built shrines and erected enormous stone figures known as moai , which created an unrivalled cultural landscape that continues to fascinate people throughout the world.

November 16 is International Day for Tolerance.
Tolerance is respect, acceptance and appreciation of the rich diversity of our world's cultures, our forms of expression and ways of being human.

Across the world, societies are undergoing deep transformation, just as globalisation is accelerating. This is opening vast opportunities for dialogue and exchange. It is also raising new challenges, sharpened by inequality and poverty, enduring conflicts and movements of people. We see today the rise of exclusive politics and discourses of division. We see diversity being rejected as a source of weakness. We see myths of ‘pure’ cultures of lore being gloried,

In this context, tolerance must be more than indifference and the passive acceptance of others. Tolerance must be seen as an act of liberation, whereby the differences of others are accepted as the same as our own. This means respecting the great diversity of humanity on the basis of human rights. It means reaching out to others across new bridges of dialogue. This means standing up to all forms of racism, hatred and discrimination, because discrimination against one is discrimination against all.

Join us today in celebrating #ToleranceDay!

@unesco has new Director-General!
On Friday 10 November, UNESCO's General Conference officially appointed Ms Audrey Azoulay as Director-General of the Organization. She is the 11th Director-General of UNESCO and the second woman to occupy this position, after outgoing Director-General Irina Bokova. Azoulay will take office on 15 November.

Born in 1972, Ms Azoulay was France’s Minister of Culture and Communication from February 2016 to May 2017. She has occupied senior positions in France’s public broadcasting sector and then served as rapporteur to France’s public auditing authority, the Cour des comptes, and as a European Commission legislative expert on issues of culture and the media.

Wanna join us for a little stroll? 😉

Come with us! We are heading to Mostar. Did you know that the Old Bridge Area of the Old City of Mostar is inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List?

Let's get into details. The historic town of Mostar, spanning a deep valley of the Neretva River, developed in the 15th and 16th centuries as an Ottoman frontier town and during the Austro-Hungarian period in the 19th and 20th centuries. Mostar has long been known for its old Turkish houses and Old Bridge, Stari Most, after which it is named. In the 1990s conflict, however, most of the historic town and the Old Bridge, designed by the renowned architect Sinan, was destroyed. The Old Bridge was recently rebuilt and many of the edifices in the Old Town have been restored or rebuilt with the contribution of an international scientific committee established by UNESCO. The Old Bridge area, with its pre-Ottoman, eastern Ottoman, Mediterranean and western European architectural features, is an outstanding example of a multicultural urban settlement. The reconstructed Old Bridge and Old City of Mostar is a symbol of reconciliation, international co-operation and of the coexistence of diverse cultural, ethnic and religious communities.

On this day in 1867, Polish and naturalized-French scientist Marie Curie was born in Warsaw. Today we pay tribute to this woman who passionately dedicated her life to scientific research. Largely known for her work in the radioactivity field, it is important to recall that Marie Curie was the first woman ever to receive the Nobel Prize, the first person and only woman to win twice, the only person to win a Nobel Prize in two different sciences, as well as the first woman to lecture at the Sorbonne University in Paris.
Marie Curie will always be an inspiring example to all women wishing to pursue a career in science. Today let us remember Marie Curie and let us remember that the World still needs more women in science.
To mark this anniversary, we would like to invite you to read the articles published in The Unesco Courier on the 100th anniversary of Marie Curie’s birthday. Copy & paste this link in your Internet browser and enjoy the reading! http://on.unesco.org/2tmMr21 [PDF]

What you see in this picture is part of the Timbuktu mausoleums, in Mali.
They were destroyed by extremists in 2012, but only 3 years later, the mausoleums were restored thanks to the extraordinary work carried out by local craftsmen and with international support led by UNESCO experts. Timbuktu, and Mali in general, is an example of how culture has become a victim of conflict.
The targeting of ethnic and religious minorities, along with the forced displacement of millions of people, have contributed to the erosion of intangible cultural heritage practices and cultural expressions.
These attacks on culture and people form a deliberate strategy that UNESCO Director-General has called “cultural cleansing”. On Monday 6 November, UNESCO brought together Ministers from Iraq and Mali, the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and international experts to strengthen cooperation in response to cultural cleansing and violent extremism.
Today more than ever we need to #unite4heritage, share our history and transmit the values it carries to future generations.
