The UNESCO Office in Montevideo is participating in the #Unite4Heritage campaign, organizing activities at the regional level to actively participate in international efforts to stop extremist attacks on the cultural heritage of humanity. These concrete actions for Latin America aim to promote the role of culture as a factor of tolerance and dialogue between peoples and to counter violent extremism in all its manifestations.
