World Heritage and Culture of Peace represent universal values on which UNESCO has a special focus.
Importance of the preservation of common heritage of human kind is expressed in armed conflicts and in areas threatened by extremists. For more information on world heritage in danger visit the link.
Spreading the Culture of Peace is an important factor in preservation of cultural sites which are a symbol of the identity of one nation and also a part of the common heritage of whole human kind. Special area of activity of UNESCOâ€™s Culture of Peace programme is Heritage and contemporary creativity as tools for building peace through dialogue.
Importance of learning about World Heritage Sites for better understanding and affirmation of different aspects of peace is outlined in a chapter of the manual World Heritage in Young Hands.

In the framework of the cycle â€śChanging societies, changing journalism: a global discussion on the future of journalismâ€ť led by the University Institute of Lisbon ISCTE â€“ IUL (Portugal) and Dialogue CafĂ© Lisbon, a third global session on Â â€śThe new whistleblowers: what is the role of journalists in the digital age?â€ťÂ will be held in 26 November 2015 from 14h00 to 15h30 London time.
2nd Session DC – Changing Societies, Changing Journalism
Journalism is facing big challenges. Technology, internet, social changes, and other factors are bringing many questions to what and how is going to be the future of journalism. Is journalism still important? Whatâ€™s the role of journalism in a networked society? Are people still interested in what journalists have to tell them? Do they trust journalism as a good source of information? Are there new paths for journalism? Is journalism still considered the 4th power?
For example, cases like Wikileaks, the Snowden case, and even more recent LuxLeaks, brought to discussion whistleblowing and its new ways. Technology, transparency and globalization are key words in this new framework.
Discussing journalists role in this framework is of great importance, because the relation between whistleblowers and journalists is changing.
The session will be moderated by Gustavo Cardoso, Centre for Research and Studies in Sociology, University Institute of Lisbon (CIES-IUL).
Special speakers will join us in DC Lisbon: Luis de Sousa, TIAC – TransparĂŞncia e Integridade, AssociaĂ§ĂŁo CĂvica, JoĂŁo Paulo Pardal, TIAC – TransparĂŞncia e Integridade, AssociaĂ§ĂŁo CĂvica, and Micael Pereira, Journalist at Expresso.
Other participants will join us in DC Novi Pazar and DC Rio de Janeiro.
