About the local hosting organizationGender Equality is one of UNESCO's two global priorities and it is also one of the Millennium Development Goals, with a commitment to promote equality between women and men across the Organization's mandate. Gender Equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for the creation of sustainable and peaceful societies. UNESCO's recently published report on Gender Equality: Heritage and Creativity vividly demonstrates the need for deeper debate, research and awareness-raising on the need for equal rights, responsibilities and opportunities for women and men, boys and girls in the fields ofheritage and creativity. Our Gender Equality & Culture Exchange Program is especially focused on building a world, which people can live together friendly, on achieving better gender equality. It also tried hard to empower women and lead women to have a smart life.
