#Unite4Heritage is a global movement powered by UNESCO that aims to celebrate and safeguard cultural heritage and diversity around the world. Launched in response to the unprecedented recent attacks on heritage, the campaign calls on everyone to stand up against extremism and radicalization by celebrating the places, objects and cultural traditions that make the world such a rich and vibrant place.

Illicit Trafficking

Illicit trafficking of cultural objects not only threatens heritage, but also provides a source of funding for extremist groups. Supported by the recent UN Security Council Resolution 2199, we've built a global coalition of partners dedicated to ensuring that objects cannot be moved across borders and are implementing training and assistance programmes on the ground.

Extremism and radicalization

We proudly stand against the kinds of extremist narratives that call for attacks on cultural diversity and tolerance. We're working to ensure young people can use the Internet without risk of radicalization, and to counter online hate speech through media and information literacy.
