TOLERANCE OF INTOLERANCE IS COWARDLINESS.

‪#‎Unite4Heritage‬: Currently, a video circulating on social media shows the destruction of Nimrud, an ancient Iraqi heritage site. The propaganda and hatred underlying this horrific act demands in response messages of peace and knowledge of history. We support all those – in Iraq and elsewhere – who are mobilizing to explain the importance of this heritage and why nothing justifies its destruction. Support our #Unite4Heritage campaign & speak out against these crimes http://ow.ly/LxL4Z

UNESCO Director-General has strongly condemned yesterday’s armed attack on the Ministry of Culture and Higher Education in Mogadishu, Somalia, which resulted in the death and injuries of civilians, members of the security forces and Government workers. The intentional targeting of education and culture is a war crime - education and culture must be protected and kept out of any conflict http://ow.ly/LEm0Q

The reconstruction of the Timbuktu’s World Heritage monuments has entered its final stage. Launched in March last year, the rehabilitation of the 14 mausoleums that were destroyed by armed groups in 2012, is scheduled to be completed in July 2015.
Work is underway in the three mausoleums located in the cemeteries of the three saints (Sheikh Sidi Ben Amar, Sheikh Abdoul Kasim Al Taouati, and Sheikh Sidi El Mikki), as well as the mausoleums of Alpha Moya, Sidi Mahmoud, El Moktar, El Boukkou, and others scattered around the city.
The reconstruction draws on technical and architectural studies of the site, with local masons using traditional building techniques to respect the integrity of the monuments. The project places local communities at the heart of the rehabilitation process and aims to preserve the heritage value of the mausoleums for the inhabitants of Timbuktu.
The work is part of an Action Plan developed by UNESCO and Mali in February 2013 with the support of France and funding from partners such as Switzerland and the European Union. Their contribution has provided for the implementation and coordination of the restoration of the site. The MINUSMA has brought logistical support to the project.
The mausoleums bear witness to the economic, intellectual and spiritual Golden Age of Timbuktu in the 15th and 16th centuries. They are exceptional examples of earthen architecture whose upkeep had been ensured by the inhabitants of the city until they were deliberately stopped by occupying armed groups. Sixteen such monuments are included in the Malian site inscribed on the World Heritage List.

Why do you think it's important to learn another language? We believe learning multilingualism is the foundation of ‪#‎globalcitizenship‬ - an asset for working cross-culturally, living together, understanding each other.
