Preserving and respecting the specificity of each culture, while ensuring that it preserves and respects the specificities of another culture, and involving it in an approach that bring them together and extends beyond them in a more interactive and interdependent world, is the challenge which must be met by the international community and, on its behalf, by UNESCO and its partners.

UNESCO’s cultural priorities:

Promoting cultural diversity, with special emphasis on the tangible and intangible heritage

Cultural policies as well as intercultural and interfaith dialogue and understanding

Cultural industries and artistic expressions
