#Unite4Heritage: A Social Media Campaign by UNESCO
“Today, we send a clear message,” said the Director-General. “We do not accept cultural cleansing and we will stand together to do everything we can to stop it.”
The campaign #Unite4heritage invites everyone, especially young people from the Arab region: “Take a photo of your favorite heritage site or artifact and tell us why it’s important for you. Post it to Facebook, Twitter or Instragram using the #Unite4Heritage hashtag.”
The launch has taken place in the presence of students, government ministers and university officials. During her visit to Baghdad, the Director-General Irina Bokova met with the Prime Minister of Iraq, Haider Al Abadi and the Speaker of the House of Representative, Salim al-Jabouri along with several other high level officials.
