On the occasion of May 21, World Day for Cultural Diversity 2008, the UNESCO Office in Kathmandu encourages all journalists, artists, entrepreneurs and civil society players to actively participate in this celebration in order to promote dialogue and development. Of the seven international conventions promoted by UNESCO to strengthen cultural diversity throughout the world, the 2003 “Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage” and the 2005 “Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions”, are now entering into an operational phase in many countries. In particular the latter seeks to reaffirm the links between culture, development and dialogue, and to create an innovative platform for international cultural cooperation. UNESCO Kathmandu would support Nepal in the ratification of both. “Cultural diversity is not decreed, it is observed and practiced. The aim of this Day is thus to nurture the experience of this diversity in a spirit of curiosity, engaging in dialogue and listening to one another, and so, to test out the practical possibilities of development offered by cultural enterprises, creative industries, cultural tourism and the safeguarding of cultural heritage, not least within the framework of national development plans and the common country programming of the United Nations system,” as the Director-General of UNESCO, Koïchiro Matsuura stresses in a message on the occasion of this celebration. He also added, “We must now
give greater recognition to culture as a contributor to truly sustainable development that respects people and environments, and serves the cause of dialogue and peace. In this way we shall be able to recover the sense of our joint commitment to promoting the intellectual and moral solidarity of mankind”.
