Romanian initiative for intercultural dialogue agreed to by UNESCO

The UNESCO might implement worldwide a Romanian initiative in the field of young people’s being involved in the intercultural dialogue. It was presented at the conference titled ‘Ethics – Save the Planet Earth,’ which was held on August 22-24 in Kazakhstan’s capital Astana.
During the conference Romania’s delegation presented an innovating document, created and meant for young people: ‘Passport for Global ETHICS.’ This is a working instrument for the younger generation, a symbol of the values UNESCO wants to offer young people through the agency of various programmes and platforms supporting the intercultural dialogue.
Romania’s suggestion was agreed to by all the representatives of the UNESCO clubs the world over and they suggested it should be implemented worldwide. UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova thanked Romania for this initiative.
President of the European association ‘Youth for the Future’ Claudiu Marius Pascovici told the officials attending the conference that ‘the new generation wants to have a competitive environment, an open and correct society in which tolerance and the observance of human rights are fundamental values that must unequivocally be observed.’
In December 2012 Romania took over as president of the European Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centres and Associations for a mandate which will end in 2016.
UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova, president of the World Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centres and Associations George Chrisophides, president of the Republic of Kazakhstan’s Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centres and Associations Bolat Akchulakov and chairman of the UNESCO national commission of the Republic of Kazakhstan Imangali Tasmagambetov attended the conference titled ‘Ethics – Save the Planet Earth,’ which was held in Kazakhstan.
