Celebrating UNESCO's 70th Anniversary
IN 1945, UNESCO was founded to build international understanding through protection of heritage and support for cultural diversity. UNESCO created the idea of World Heritage to protect sites of outstanding universal value, a few of which are represented by the photographs in this calendar. Its goals are to assure that every child, boy or girl, has access to quality education as a fundamental human right; to pursue scientific cooperation such as early warning systems for tsunamis and to strengthen ties between nations and societies; to protect freedom of expression, an essential condition for democracy, development and human dignity.
