Meeting by Member States or Institutions

Over 500 Rotary members from more than 20 countries gathered in Paris for a Rotary Conference organized at UNESCO Headquarters, in support of UNESCO’s 70th Anniversary Celebrations.
The vision, objectives and programmes of Rotary and UNESCO converge on many levels. Both organizations defend education for all regardless of race, gender, beliefs and cultures. They advocate for the protection and diversity of cultures, and for dialogue as a source of tolerance and mutual respect. Building peace through intercultural dialogue was a theme addressed by UNESCO representatives, Rotarians, Rotaractors, and Rotary programme alumni alike.
