Un Agreement On Cultural Diversity

Creation draws on the roots of cultural tradition, but thrives in contact with other cultures. That is why heritage in all its forms must be preserved, valued and transmitted to future generations as a record of human experiences and aspirations, in order to promote creativity in all its diversity and encourage a genuine dialogue between cultures. Date: 21 May 2020 Location: worldwide www: www.un.org/en/events/culturaldiversityday/ UNESCO`s Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity was adopted unanimously in a very unusual context. It took place following the events of 11 September 2001 and the General Conference of UNESCO, which met for its 31st session, was the first ministerial meeting to meet in the wake of these terrible events. The declaration aims to preserve cultural diversity as a living and therefore renewable treasure, which should not be perceived as an immutable heritage, but as a process guaranteeing the survival of humanity; and to prevent segregation and fundamentalism which, in the name of cultural differences, would sanctify those differences and thus counteract the message of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. All cultural actors are required to participate as guardians of the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions. These include States and institutions recognized by the Convention, civil and civil society actors, private actors such as cultural enterprises and industries, particularly in developing countries, minorities and indigenous peoples. .
