Take a quick look out of the window to enjoy this beautiful view! Tranquil tarns, craggy mountains, glistening lakes, drystone walls and deep green fells. Today's stop is in the #LakeDistrictnational park, located in the Northwest of England by the Scottish border. Shaped by glaciers in the Ice Age, the area bears testimony to the centuries-long harmonious relationship between local communities and this beautiful piece of land. Its unique culture of communal hill-farming lies at the heart of this captivating area to this day and has shaped the landscape for hundreds of years. The photo above was taken from a Bothy, a rustic shelter found across England and Scotland's mountainous regions, and features the jaw-dropping view of Buttermere, one of the region's many lakes, from Warnscale Head. The Warnscale bothy, built in the 1750s for a local slate mine, is easily camouflaged in the surrounding landscapes. The Lake District has inspired the literary minds of great British writers such as William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter, and keeps enthralling visitors as one of the UK’s most favourite national parks today.⁣ Did you like this?

The cultural landscape of Budj Bim (Australia) within the Country of the Gundijmara, an Australian aboriginal nation, is now part of the World Heritage List. So is the Canadian site Writing-on-Stone / Áísínai’pi, whose landscape is considered sacred to the Blackfoot (Siksikáítsitapi) people, who perpetuate their centuries-old traditions through ceremonies and respect for places. The knowledge, actions and experience of indigenous peoples are essential for the preservation of our common cultural and natural heritage. For this reason, indigenous representatives from all regions of the world, including - for the first time - the Arctic region, are also taking part in the 43rd session of the World Heritage Committee, held until 10 July in Baku, Azerbaijan. This participation, which coincides with the International Year of Indigenous Languages 2019, is to be welcomed Photo: A Blackfoot tipi is erected at the park to celebrate National Aboriginal Day (June 21) © Alberta Parks/Budj Bim Cultural Landscape © Gunditj Mirring Traditional Owners 📸📸📸. . . . . . #WorldHeritage#43whc#Culture#Heritage##UNESCO#Nature#Earth#Life#Australia#Canada#Azerbaijan#Baku#WeAreIndigenous#IndigenousPeople#IYIL2019

“Feet, what do I need them for if I have wings to fly” - Frida Kahlo. 6 July marks the 112th anniversary of the birthday of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. She was an artist who explored the female psyche with immense bravery and imagination, undaunted by excruciating physical handicaps. Frida Kahlo mostly painted self-portraits and her art was inspired by Mexican popular culture. After her death in 1954, aged only 47, Kahlo’s work remained quite unknown until the 1970s, when art historians and political activists rediscovered it. Today, Frida Kahlo is considered one of the major forces in the 20th century art. On the anniversary of her birthday, we pay tribute to a life devoted to art and political struggle. #FridaKahlo#Mexico#Art#Culture#History#Heritage#Arts#UNESCO#VivaLaVida#VivaLaFrida#Artist#Heritage

Our pristine places on earth will become polluted by air and land if we do not act now. This week, the World Heritage Committee, meeting in Baku since 30 June, has decided to inscribe the Islands and Protected Areas of the Gulf of California (Mexico) in order to continue protecting the area that humans and other species alike call home. A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2005, this site is comprised of 244 islands, islets and coastal areas located in the Gulf of California in northeastern Mexico. The Sea of Cortez is known for its natural laboratory of species and its oceanographic processes vital to researchers. An attraction for many, the site is inviting to all from its sandy beaches to its high cliffs, all coming together with its surrounding turquoise waters. It’s here in this beautiful setting where we can find the last ten remaining vaquitas known to man today. Mexico continues its efforts to protect threatened species as an increase in marine mammals’ deaths due to asphyxiation are causing a rupture in the ecosystem. When our planet’s animals and plants suffer, we suffer alongside them. Look around you. The air we breathe is increasingly more polluted. The water we drink is increasingly less safe to ingest. It’s our responsibility towards future generations to save and protect our planet. Only cooperation and mutual efforts can help us achieve a better future for all.

On this day in 1934, Polish and naturalized-French scientist Marie Curie dies aged 66. Today we pay tribute to the career of this woman who passionately dedicated her life to scientific research. Mostly known by her work in the radioactivity field, she was the first woman ever to receive the Nobel Prize and the first woman to lecture at the Sorbonne University. Marie Curie will always be an inspiring example to all women wishing to pursue a career in science. Today let us remember Marie Curie and let us remember that the World still needs more women in science. #MarieCurie#Science#WomenInScience#NobelPrize#History#France#Poland#Sorbonne#Radioactivity#Scientists#Research#UnescoCourier#ForWomenInScience#GenderEquality#OnThisDay

Timeless Baku. Eternal Baku. Several millennia old, the fortified city of Baku, the Azerbaijani capital, retains traces of Zoroastrian, Sassanian, Arabic, Persian, Shirvani, Ottoman and Russian presence. The modern city, fruit of the first oil boom in the 19th century, has an equally eclectic cultural heritage. Because of its bay and its proximity to caravan roads, the city has always been crossed by multiple currents. The result is an extraordinary harmonious diversity, reflected both in its architecture and its cosmopolitan spirit The 43rd session of UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee is currently underway in Baku. The opening ceremony of this year’s session was held on 30 June marking the start of the Committee’s work. Until 10 July, the Committee members will examine the inscription of 35 sites on the World Heritage List and the state of conservation of 166 sites already on the List. UNESCO Director-General @audrey.azoulayemphasized the fact that this Convention remains “an essential resource” as it “broke new ground and is still a major instrument in the protection of heritage around the world.” 👉 If you want to follow all the debates and the latest updates, check out our Twitter account and follow the #43WHC& #WorldHeritage.👈 #WorldHeritage#Baku#UNESCO#Unite4Heritage#Culture#43whc#WorldHeritageConvention#WorldHeritageCommittee#Azerbaijan Photo:Walled City of Baku with the Shirvanshah's Palace and Maiden Tower, UNESCO World Heritage, since 2000. © Getty Images 📸📸📸 . . . . . #WorldHeritage#UNESCO#Heritage#Culture#Baku#Azerbaijan#Tourism#Diversity#43WHC

It's not just a game. It's more important than that, because number's don't lie. In football, 1 male players makes as much as the combined salary of 1,693 female players. Gender equaliy is still not a reality in sport and the fight continues. We don't want to wait any longer!

“It is Mosul that I love the most, that I consider home. A city surrounded by vast green plains (...), gardens dappled with red poppies and yellow chamomiles”. But that Mosul is now gone. This is how Iraqi novelist Inaam Kachachi describes a city she remembers from the past. Once, famed for its silks, the city was a melting pot of people and ideas, bustling with colorful markets and soaring minarets straddling the Tigris River. But Mosul’s occupation by ISIS has left the city ravaged. Neighbourhoods have been entirely wiped out, schools are destroyed and many historical sites lie in ruins. Hundreds of thousands of the city’s residents have fled their homes to save their lives. Today, many residents are slowly returning - they have not given up on their home. Rebuilding takes combined efforts. Now, UNESCO’s initiative #ReviveTheSpiritOfMosulaims to coordinate international efforts for the city's restoration. But this is not only about restoring stones. Reviving the spirit of Mosul is about restoring its social fabric of men and women who inhabit it. It is about education, culture and a future for all. #Mosul#Heritage#Culture#Education#UNESCO#SustainableDevelopment#CulturalHeritage#RightToEducation#Iraq#BuildingPeace#Peace#Future#History Photocredit: Ali Albaroodi
