Organized by UNESCO and co-sponsored by the Permanent Missions of the Republic of Peru and the Republic of Korea to the United Nations, the event draws inspiration from the ground-breaking 2014 UNESCO report, “Gender Equality, Heritage and Creativity”, which explores the challenges and opportunities for gender equality in cultural life.
