Seminar on Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development — Field Work Projects

A bit more than ten years ago, the year 2002 was the United Nations Year for Cultural Heritage. At the end of that year, on December 20, 2002, the General Assembly of the United Nations declared May 21 to be the World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development. The General Assembly emphasized links between the protection of cultural diversity and the importance of dialogue between civilizations in the modern world. This session will be an opportunity to promote the field projects in education and cultural heritage that are a contribution for cultural diversity for dialogue and development.
