18 July is Nelson Mandela International Day. Let's honour today those who fought and continue to fight for freedom, dignity and human rights. This struggle has never been more important in societies today that are weakened by rising and multiple tensions -- economic, social, political as well as climatic.
More than ever, we must renew our commitment to the values of Nelson Mandela, a great humanist defender of the oppressed, who also honoured UNESCO as a Goodwill Ambassador, in order to build societies where every woman and man can live together in diversity and respect.

On World Refugee Day, we honour refugees' strength, courage & resilience in the quest for peace. In a moment where the world is undergoing the largest ever recorded forced movement and displacement of people, it is time to take a step forward and clearly state that we all stand with refugees. And you?

On this day in 1942, Anne Frank received a diary for her 13th birthday. Safeguarded as UNESCO Memory of the World, the "Diary of Anne Frank" is today one of the world's most powerful voices about the fight for human dignity, and the rejection of all forms of racism http://j.mp/yrgTPK

* If you visit Amsterdam, be sure to see the Diary at the Anne Frank House (http://www.annefrank.org/en/)

Ocean sciences are led by a small number of industrialized countries although collecting data and taking the measure of the ocean’s health is a global priority considering the economic and environmental stakes involved, according to the Global Ocean Science Report, compiled by UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission. The Report advocates increased investment into research and calls for greater international scientific cooperation.
