Survey could provide insight into youth values: UNESCO official

A survey that has given voice to one million young people in Europe could also be carried out in other parts of the world, according to a senior officer with the UN cultural agency, UNESCO.

Sue Vize, who's with UNESCO’s office in Bangkok, has high hopes for a regional version of Generation What?, which asked so-called millennials to share their views on what it means to be young in Europe.

World Day celebrates “the memory of mankind”

Films, videos and sound recordings are a means to tell stories about the world’s people while also reflecting their diversity.

That’s according to the UN cultural agency, UNESCO, which highlights their value on the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, observed on 27 October.

The celebrations this year include a film festival in Myanmar that pays tribute to the rich audiovisual heritage in South-East Asia.
