The desire to represent historical and cultural heritage sites in the UNESCO World Heritage List is demonstrated by all countries of the world. Today the list includes 1052 objects, 814 of them are cultural, 203 are natural and 35 are mixed. They are located in 165 nations, Belarus is among them. The Belarussian heritage site list is not that diverse, it ha only four cultural heritage sites - Architectural, Residential and Cultural Complex of the Radziwill Family at Nesvizh, Mir Castle Complex, Struve Geodetic Arc and Bialowieza Forest.
These sites became the most popular places to visit by few tourists coming to the country. Just recently in February 2017, Belarus opened its doors to 80 more countries, the country is eager to attract new visitors. Do we have enough landmarks to show to the newcomers? We might as well. The Ministry of Culture has recently approved a timetable for the preparation of five sites that by 2020 are planned to be presented to the international experts of the World Heritage Centre in Paris. Among them: Saviour Transfiguration Church and St. Sophia Cathedral in the town of Polatsk (2004) SS. Boris and Gleb (Kalozha) Church in the city of Hrodna (2004) Edifices for Worship of Fortress Type in Belarus, Poland and Lithuania (2004) and Worship wooden architecture (17th -18th centuries) in Polesye (2004). It seems like the country is getting ready for a possible touristic boom.
But the citizens are eager to know how the restoration works will be handled. Belarus has a history of restoring its cultural sites, not paying much attention to the authenticity of the place, but rather giving places a new polished look. The most famous example is Lydski Castle, restored by the Belarussian government and rejected by the UNESCO Committee. Why was it rejected and what qualities is UNESCO looking for in sites in order to include them on the list? Two main principles must be met: authenticity and uniqueness. In case of the Lydski Castle, both principles were ignored. First, inappropriate constructing materials were used, so the site now looks almost too perfect. Second, the architecture of the castle is not much different from any other medieval fortress in Europe.
The trend of restoring the structures to its original version is not new to post World War II Europe. Warsaw municipality has restored the whole neighbourhood, Berlin has demolished the Palace of the Republic and is in the process of rebuilding the City Palace instead. There are a lot of reasons for such changes, among them national identity and social memories that people are trying to maintain or create.
The world is moving forward, and social trauma will be forgotten with new generations taking over. Maybe one day the soviet architecture will al on UNESCO list. We will just have to try and not to restore it too much.

Cooperation and collaboration amongst countries is vital to international diplomacy. UNESCO creates a platform where countries can come together, express themselves freely, celebrate their heritage, and ensure equal access to education. Understandably, the United States was an active member of this organization from the beginning. As a leader in the global economy during the 1940s, they helped lay the groundwork for UNESCO’s goals and became an extremely large contributor to the organization as a whole. However, what happened when they decided to withdraw their support in 1984? What specific events led them to turn their backs on an organization that they helped to build? The answer lies within a political structure that fears radicalization in the struggle for power.
UNESCO was established as a “meeting of diverse minds,” however when it was founded, the countries had an extremely westernized point of view. By 1984, UNESCO had grown from 30 countries to 153 and the new members wanted their voices to be heard. This only became a problem for the United States with the development of new communication strategies for developing countries, specifically those involving the press. Many countries feared for the safety of their journalists, and therefore made plans to limit their media outlets. Although this was a valid concern in some cases, many member states were using this as an opportunity to hide their government activities, therefore eliminating any form of global transparency. The United States were averse to these limitations and in fact threatened to withdraw their support if they were accepted. The aversion came from a fear that if there was not some form of transparency between countries, the United States and their political power would be threatened.
Another condition that led to the withdrawal of the United States was the view that UNESCO was overstepping boundaries in politics. Understandably as the overall make-up of the organization shifted, so did its political agenda. UNESCO’s core values from the beginning included a commitment to the economic, social, and cultural wellbeing of the world. However, this value system made it susceptible to radicalization and the United States felt that the organization was moving in the direction of a completely radicalized system. Their objection started with UNESCO’s involvement in the Israeli occupation of Jerusalem. The organization condemned Israel for destroying Jerusalem’s cultural heritage site and the US felt as if they should not be involved in such a political conflict. Although protecting heritage sites is an important part of their mission, they thought such a conflict should be handled by the United Nations, themselves.
The threat of the loss of global transparency with the direction of radical politicization within the organization are vital pieces to the larger puzzle to explain the United States’ withdrawal from UNESCO. They continued their hiatus for many years, not renewing their membership from 1984-2003. However, the most important point to remember is that a decision to disengage from these global organizations is always political. It’s a question of control and the effort to maintain political power that leads certain countries to make these decisions.
“Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defenses of peace must be constructed” is the main UNESCO’s purpose and the base of its Constitution.
The main focus of UNESCO (United Nation Education Scientific Cultural Organization) is “to contribute to peace and security by promoting collaboration among the nations through education, science and culture in order to further universal respect for justice, for the rule of law, and for the human rights and fundamental freedoms which are affirmed for the peoples of the world, without distinction of race, sex, language or religion, by the Charter of the United Nations”. Nowadays, UNESCO's prior concern has never been more significant. There should be established general policies to address the social, environmental and economic dimensions of sustainable development. The new vision on sustainable development reaffirms the founding principles of the organization and enhances its role: in a globalized and interconnected world, intercultural dialogue is important if we are going to live together while acknowledging our diversity. In recent years the terrorist phenomenon called Isis has spread, claiming its own ideology through a series of attacks, violating the reality of peace in many countries of the West and the Middle East. Not only aiming at a human massacre, but also cultural ones. This could be a new method of annihilation: by destroying the cultural heritage of a people, they will also clear its history.
In his battles, UNESCO seeks to help the victims of this deprivation, imposed by funding and recognizing the affected areas (Aja Convention, since 1954). Compared to all previous conventions, this is the first general instrument devoted exclusively to the issue of protection of cultural heritage in which it appears. The definition of "cultural heritage includes -for the first time in an international treaty- not only solutions to avoid wars between states, but also not international ones. The convention provides two levels of protection of cultural heritage: the "general" for the goods that can be identified in times of war by a special distinguishing mark, and the "special" to apply only to certain heritages, placed in a special "registry "international held by the director general of 'UNESCO. Belonging to this last category are Egyptian Museum in Cairo, the Mousul Museum, the Mosque of al- Nabhy (the tomb of the prophet Younis), Library of Timbuktu and much of the archaeological heritage of Palmyra and Aleppo, where there was UNESCO's intervention that sent support, thanks to the presence of the military authorities as a result of the massacre, to protect the area.
To realize this purpose the Organization will collaborate in the work of advancing the mutual knowledge and understanding of peoples, through all means of mass communication and give fresh impulse to popular education and to the spread of culture (by collaborating with Members, by instituting collaboration among the nations, by suggesting educational methods best suited to prepare people of the world for the responsibilities of freedom).
We can say that UNESCO is fighting for whatever being an “individual” is: culture. This means defending not only the person, but its identity.

“Heritage is about dialogue among different cultures and this is why extremists are afraid of history” said Irina Bokova, the Director-General of UNESCO, in a news conference in Rome last year. Extremists destroyed archeological, cultural and religious sites in the last few years, since they do not want this dialogue to be true.
From 2012 in Syria started a Civil War which brought to the destruction of mosques, churches, suqs, khans, madrassas, hammams museums and other significant buildings of the National Heritage.
For instance, in Aleppo, more than 60% of the old city has been severely damaged, and 30% totally destroyed.
In order to face this catastrophe, UNESCO led an emergency mission to Aleppo from 16 to 19 January 2017 to undertake a preliminary assessment of the extent of damages, and UNESCO is working on an emergency initiative to coordinate international efforts.
In spite of the fact that from 2014 ISIS has been destroying several sites in Mosul, Iraq, including some mausoleums and the Archeological Museum, in 2016 an Assyrian ancient temple has been found. Thanks to the British Museum, a team of 50 archaeologists is going to rebuild the museum and preserve the archaeological treasure of Mosul.
Fryad Rawandouzi, the Minister of Culture in Iraq, would like to receive help from UNESCO in order not only to rehabilitate museums, cities and sites but also to return stolen objects sold by extremists on the internet and in the black market.
To prevent further disasters, president Hollande spoke about the defence of humanity's shared heritage. This is the incentive for building a new global coalition, drawing on UNESCO's experience and on existing conventions, and crafting new mechanisms.
"The drive to build, the drive to sanctify traditions is what makes us human, and this is why defending cultural heritage is defending all humanity" said US Vice President Joe Biden.

When Paolo Petrocelli, 32, takes the stage at the last session of the Open Ceremony of the International Careers Festival at the Auditorium della Tecnica, everyone is impressed by his young age. After having heard distinguished professionals, among which the Minister Plenipotentiary Francesca Tardioli and the Director of Human Resources at FAO Monika Altmaier, no one would have ever imagined to be impressed by the last speech of the inauguration.
With a natural approach, he humbly starts his dissertation on “Youth and the UN” in front of more than one thousand young students gathered at the imposing conference hall of Confindustria. From the very beginning, his speech reveals an extraordinary personality and a remarkable curriculum. Indeed, his intervention results in being far more inspiring than a simple presentation.
With his charisma, he introduces the UNESCO institution, founded in 1945 with the aim of spreading worldwide peace and dialogue through education, science and culture. He stresses the fact that the organisation was created in war time, when the only purpose people had was surviving from the harsh World War II. Petroncelli puts the focus on the values that the different ministers of education, collected in 1943 to fight Nazis through the promotion of culture, were trying to convey while creating the organisation. After seventy years, the same creativity and desire motivate him to act. He is concerned about the interaction of the organisation and youth and he personally aims at promoting the cooperation among the two.
Therefore, he was nominated Youth Delegate for the National Committee for UNESCO at the Paris Congress in 2011, where he represented Italy at the 7th Global Youth Forum. The main issue discussed was the understanding on how young people could access UNESCO, in order to boost the change in our societies in a collaborative environment.
Six years ago, his motivation has driven him to the brilliant idea of proposing the foundation of the first Youth Committee of UNESCO in Italy. “We wanted to let our voices be heard from the UN in Paris” he claims, and that is what actually happened: with the implementation of his project, the Youth Committee of the Italian National Commission for UNESCO was founded and the First National Assembly took place in Rome on 15-16 January 2016.
“I didn’t want to wait for an opportunity to come. I wanted to act.” That is the ultimate message he launches to the young audience. While considering the idea of creating an opportunity for youth to be an active part of UNESCO, he has made an impact on the system.
