The International Conference of NGOs that I represent wishes to stand by UNESCO Director General who sent a strong message on the tragic fire that devastated Notre Dame,World Heritage of Humanity, of outstanding universal value.
The planetary suffering entailed is on a par with the symbol and the universal beneficent vocation of this unique heritage in the world.
Testimonies from around the world and from NGOs show the attachment to the work of art and to the spiritual dimension of this heritage of the human community and its cultural diversities.
This global momentum is in keeping with the dimension of UNESCO and its universal values.
President of the ICNGO and NGO-UNESCO Liaison Committee
