New Delhi, 24 July 2019 — Union Minister of Commerce & Industry and Railways, Piyush Goyal, launched the Global Innovation Index (GII) 2019 in New Delhi, today.

India jumped five places to improve its position from 57th last year to 52nd in 2019.

The Minister, Piyush Goyal, congratulated all those involved in the process. He said that India has made significant progress to 52nd rank in the GII-2019 and now the culture of innovation is coming to the center-stage. Mr. Goyal further said that India would not rest on past laurels until it achieves its target of positioning itself among the top 25 countries of the Global Innovation Index. To achieve this ranking, he urged all stakeholders to work in mission mode.

Piyush Goyal urged the R&D institutions, universities, and the private sector to transform the country into a hub of innovation.

The Commerce and Industry Minister in his address said that the improvement in the rankings should inspire Indians to help marginalized and underprivileged section of society. He said India needs innovative solutions to problems like rising pollution levels in cities, water crises, depleting natural resources, climate change, and food wastage.

“The rise in the GII by economic powerhouses like China and India have transformed the geography of innovation,” said WIPO Director General Francis Gurry.

Mr. Gurry thanked the Government of India for hosting the global launch of the GII. “India’s high-level focus on using innovation to foster economic development makes the country an ideal location for the GII 2019 launch,” Mr. Gurry said.

• The GII rankings are published every year by Cornell University, INSEAD and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).

The GII rankings of 129 economies use 80 indicators ranging from intellectual property filing rates to mobile-application creation, education spending, and scientific and technical publications.

Switzerland remains number one in the GII index. Sweden follows it. The United States of America, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Finland, Denmark, Singapore, Germany, and Israel come after that.

New York, 19 July 2019 — The voices of governments, donors, international organizations, youth, and teachers struck a universal chord in calling for stepped-up action to achieve relevant, equitable and inclusive quality education. They were participating in an event organized by UNESCO, the Group of Friends for Education and the SDG-Education 2030 Steering Committee during the High-Level Political Forum at UN Headquarters in New York.

“Education is a fundamental right and the supporting structure for the entire 2030 Agenda,” said UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay, opening the event. “It is urgent that we act together and step up efforts to invest more in education.” “Governments hold the primary responsibility, but civil society, multilateral and international actors must join their efforts to achieve this common goal,” she said. Ms. Azoulay asserted that UNESCO would continue to make education a top priority to accomplish its global coordination and monitoring role.

Government representatives gave examples of how Sustainable Development Goal 4 on education is influencing national policy, demonstrating its relevance to all contexts. The Minister of Research and Higher Education of Norway, Ms. Iselin Nybo, proposed actions to integrate sustainable development across all school subjects and university programs. To achieve the SDGs and build better societies, she called for the “democratization of knowledge” to ensure that the fruits of research are widely shared.

Argentina has placed a priority on ‘leaving no one behind” through affirmative actions at all levels, explained Oscar Ghillione, the country’s deputy Minister of Education. Having hosted the first G20 conference of education ministers in 2018, Argentina is also striving to “place education at the heart of the global debate,” he said.

Jaime Saavedra, head of Education Global Practice at the World Bank, called for a “completely different level of political commitment.” He warned that “many kids are in learning poverty” as proven by assessments showing that over half cannot understand a simple story. “This is morally unacceptable,” he said.

UNESCO Assistant Director-General for Education, Stefania Giannini, wrapped up the event by stressing urgency, accountability, solidarity, and political engagement to accelerate global action for education.

Paris, France, 12 July 2019 — UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay on 5 July named Nadia Nadim, the Afghan-born Danish football striker for the French women’s Paris Saint-Germain team, UNESCO Champion for Girls’ and Women’s Education.

Ms. Azoulay designated Ms. Nadim in recognition of her role in promoting sport and gender equality, her contribution to UNESCO’s educational action in favor of young people, advocacy for girls and women’s education and support for the Organization’s work worldwide.

The designation took place as UNESCO launched a significant initiative, “Her Education, our Future” to mobilize political and financial support for girls and women’s education. UNESCO is working to improve the quality of data that education policymakers require to accelerate gender parity.

Ms. Nadim was born in Herat, Afghanistan. Following the execution of her father, an Afghan National Army (ANA) general in 2000, the family sought refuge in Denmark where Ms. Nadim began her career in football. In 2018, she published a book, My Story.

While pursuing her career in football, Ms. Nadim is a student of medicine at the University of Aarhus (Denmark).

The star football player shares UNESCO’s conviction that education can improve girls and women’s future. Ms. Nadim subscribes to UNESCO’s belief that knowledge can enhance their economic independence, self-confidence, and ability to assert their rights. Ms. Nadim’s award comes in recognition of her inspiring ability to serve as a role model, and her determination to put her heart and reputation at the service of girls and women everywhere.

As a UNESCO Champion for Girls’ and Women’s Education, Ms. Nadim joins UNESCO’s family of distinguished champions, committed to the Organization’s ideals and objectives, like the football players Edson Arantes Do Nascimento (Pelé) and Rabah Madjer.

UNESCO and G7 Countries Raise the Alarm about Bullying, Join Forces against Violence in Education.

Unesco, G7, Education

Paris, 04 July, 2019 — During their meeting in France, the Education Ministers of the G7 countries, with the participation of the Director-General of UNESCO, Audrey Azoulay, adopted a declaration to “unite against bullying in all of its forms, proclaim respect as a fundamental principle for all, and help ensure that our schools are safe and welcoming for all students.”

G7, or the Group of Seven, is a group consisting of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. These countries, with the seven largest IMF-described advanced economies in the world, represent 58% of the global net wealth.

“Bullying is unacceptable and is getting even worse. UNESCO is committed to combat this educational scourge, which costs lives, ruins childhoods, and jeopardizes the future. We have big data and practical guidelines in place. We now must intensify efforts with all Member States, including G7 countries, to end this plague,” said the Director-General of UNESCO during the ministerial meeting.

As the United Nations’ lead agency for education, UNESCO works to measure and assess the prevalence and many forms of bullying and its impact. UNESCO built a global indicator to compare situation among countries and is committed to helping strengthen legislation, train, and support teachers in the fight against school violence and bullying.

UNESCO welcomed the G7 declaration and called on all countries to intensify efforts against bullying and violence in schools. Bullying takes place in all states and affects many children and young people. According to the recent UNESCO report, “Behind the Numbers: Ending School Violence and Bullying,” almost one in three students worldwide (32%) has been bullied by their peers at school at least once in the last month. With the growing presence of online social networking platforms, cyber-bullying has extended the scope of bullying. Bullying, whether psychological, physical or sexual, including online, is a severe issue and a global threat to quality education and self-confidence, UNESCO said.

According to UNESCO, several factors contribute to effective national responses, including political leadership, the collaboration between the education sector and other sectors, evidence-based approach, and training for teachers.

Meanwhile, UNESCO has joined the French proposal to organize an international conference in Paris on this issue. UNESCO will also propose to its Member States the adoption of an international anti-bullying day.

In a related development in India, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has notified “Regulations on Curbing the Menace of Ragging in Higher Educational Institutions.” These regulations are mandatory for all higher educational institutions in the country.

UGC has written a letter to the Vice-Chancellors of all Universities. It has warned, “Any violation of UGC Regulations or failure to suitably punish the perpetrators of ragging, will attract punitive action under the UGC Act.”

Meanwhile, on 23 July 2019, UGC issued a Public Notice listing 23 “fake,” “self-styled” universities that are “functioning in various parts of the country in contravention of the UGC Act.”

New Delhi, July 06, 2019 — In yet another landmark achievement, India’s nomination, Jaipur City, Rajasthan, got inscribed today on the World Heritage List of UNESCO during the 43rd Session of the World Heritage Committee held at Baku, Azerbaijan. Jaipur City was successfully nominated complying with the various UNESCO guidelines of 2017. With the inscription of Jaipur City, India has 38 world heritage sites, that include 30 Cultural properties, 7 Natural properties, and one mixed.

India’s nomination was initially recommended by the ICOMOS (advisory body of World Heritage (WH) Centre for cultural sites) as Deferral, but the 21 nation World Heritage Committee debated it and after discussion decided to inscribe it on the World Heritage list.

India’s Minister for Culture, Prahlad Singh Patel, expressed his happiness for the inclusion of Pink City Jaipur in world heritage list and congratulated people of Jaipur for this prestigious tag. The Minister thanked the global community for recognizing the historical and cultural importance of Jaipur.

Here are excerpts from the statement presented by India before the World Heritage Committee, outlining Jaipur’s Outstanding Universal Value (OUV):

The City of Jaipur is an exceptional urban example in indigenous city planning and construction in South Asia. Unlike other medieval cities of the region, Jaipur was deliberately planned as a new city on the plains open for trade as opposed to hilly terrain and military cities of past, though its planning still ensured a response to the surrounding hilltops in all directions. The site selected within the valley that lay to the south of Amber hills was comparatively flat and unmarred by any previous construction. Besides exemplary planning, its iconic monuments such as the Govind Dev temple, City Palace, Jantar Mantar, and Hawa Mahal excel in artistic and architectural craftsmanship of the period. Jaipur is an expression of the astronomical skills, living traditions, unique urban form, and exemplary foresighted city planning of the 18th-century city from India. Jaipur is an exemplary development in town planning and architecture that demonstrates amalgamation and important interchange of several ideas over the late medieval period.”

The countries that supported India’s nomination are as follows:

Brazil, Bahrain, Cuba, Indonesia, Azerbaijan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Zimbabwe, China, Guatemala, Uganda, Tunisia, Burkina Faso, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Angola, St. Kitts and Nevis. Australia and Norway initially proposed referral, but after the debate, they agreed for Inscription of Jaipur city.

With this, India now has 38 World Heritage Sites, that include 30 Cultural properties, 7 Natural properties, and one mixed site.

Paris, 28 June 2019 — Team “Zero” Heroes from the Delft University of Technology, (the Netherlands) has won the top prize of 25,000 euros of the 2019 Airbus Fly Your Ideas global student competition organized by Airbus in partnership with UNESCO. In recognition of their easy to use battery-less wireless smart switch application to replace traditional wired systems in aircraft.

Team “Zero” Heroes got selected from among 269 projects and a subsequent shortlist of seven. The biennial competition is a celebration of creativity, designed to inspire young people to get involved in sustainable innovation and engineering.

All seven finalist teams spent the last week of the competition in Toulouse, France, prototyping their idea in Airbus’ cutting-edge Innovation and R&D facilities with support from dedicated Airbus mentors and experts using state-of-the-art equipment. On 27 June, the teams presented their projects to a panel of aerospace and academic experts, and the general public through live streaming.

The jury of aerospace and academic experts from Airbus and the International Space University (Strasbourg, France) was impressed by the innovative spirit and economic understanding of the students of the “Zero” Heroes Team. Their development of wireless systems solves the main limitation of using the Internet of Things (IoT) in aircraft by removing battery integration, current safety, and regulatory challenge. Their innovation furthermore reduces fuel consumption and weight while simplifying aircraft retrofit and maintenance needs.

The runners up, Team Airfish from the University of Cambridge (UK), also presented a persuasive project with their ocean monitoring system using a satellite and video imaging technology. Their development can help governments combat illegal fishing, reduce the bycatch of endangered species, and generally decrease damage to the marine habitat.

Airbus Fly Your Ideas is a global competition challenging students to innovate for the future of aerospace in six key areas: Electrification, Data Services, Cyber Security, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, and Mixed Reality.

Since its launch by Airbus in 2008, and the signing of a partnership agreement with UNESCO in 2012, over 22,000 students from over 700 universities in 100 countries worldwide have registered for Fly Your Ideas.

This year’s finalist teams represent 11 countries and eight different universities from Asia, Europe, and South America.

The winning team received a prize of €25,000 and €10,000 were awarded to the runner-up project. The remaining finalists shared an additional €10,000.

Fabriano, Italy, 21 June 2019 — From 10 to 15 June 2019, in Fabriano, Italy, the UNESCO Creative Cities Network XIII Annual Conference gathered 50 Mayors among 480 participates from some 145 cities worldwide.

Committed to achieving the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, through culture-oriented policies, the Mayors exchanged ideas on the theme of “The Ideal City,” and shared examples of how their cities are addressing community needs by building on culture and creativity to develop innovative and inclusive urban strategies.

Sergio Mattarella, President of Italy, Ernesto Ottone, UNESCO Assistant Director-General for Culture, Gabriele Santarelli, Mayor of Fabriano, and Maria Francesca Merloni, UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for Creative Cities, who opened the Conference on 12 June, emphasized culture’s capacity to connect peoples and communities, to foster dialogue and to bring about positive social, economic and environmental change. “Culture goes beyond all boundaries,” said President Mattarella.

• The cross-cutting power of culture for sustainable development:

Participants explored prospects for the future of their cities by focusing on the role of culture across development areas including education, inclusiveness, environment and economic growth.

City Planners and Mayors are investing significantly in culture to make their cities better and sustainable. As new practices evolve, Creative Cities are emerging as hubs of experimentation that lead to innovative and successful models of sustainable development —

• LAB.2030 - Generating innovative ideas

The Conference provided an opportunity to share the first publication of the UCCN LAB.2030 Initiative, entitled “Voices of the City: UNESCO Creative Cities moving towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”. The book demonstrates diverse ways in which the Creative Cities embrace culture in their local policies.

For example, a strategy on transitioning from an industrial to a forward-thinking city is used in Saint-Étienne (France) to explore new paths towards economic development, including innovative solutions for vacant infrastructures. In Santos (Brazil), a Creative Ecofactory has been established to stimulate skills development and boost employability for people from marginalized communities. Other examples include Cairo (Egypt), where new ways of connecting heritage to local economies are emerging, and Sydney (Australia), whose local government is committed to countering gender bias and where the number of female writers has increased in three years from 32% in 2015 to 53% in 2018.

There are currently 180 Creative Cities in 72 countries. While differing geographically, demographically or economically, they are all committed to develop and exchange innovative best practices to promote creative industries, strengthen participation in cultural life, and integrate culture into sustainable urban development policies.

The Annual Conference in 2020 will focus on the theme of “Creativity, Path to Equality.” City of Santos (Brazil) will host it.

New York, USA, 18 June 2019 - The World Economic Forum and the United Nations have just signed a Strategic Partnership Framework outlining areas of cooperation to deepen institutional engagement and jointly accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Framework was drafted based on a mapping of the existing collaboration between the two institutions. It would enable a more strategic and coordinated approach towards delivering impact.

The UN-Forum Partnership was signed in a meeting held at United Nations headquarters between UN Secretary-General António Guterres and World Economic Founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab.

“Meeting the Sustainable Development Goals is essential for the future of humanity. The World Economic Forum is committed to supporting this effort, and working with the United Nations to build a more prosperous and equitable future,” said Schwab.

“The new Strategic Partnership Framework between the United Nations and the World Economic Forum has great potential to advance our efforts on critical global challenges and opportunities, from climate change, health and education to gender equality, digital cooperation and financing for sustainable development. Rooted in UN norms and values, the Framework underscores the invaluable role of the private sector in this work - and points the way toward action to generate shared prosperity on a healthy planet while leaving no one behind,” said Guterres.

The Strategic Partnership Framework will focus on the following areas:

Financing the 2030 Agenda - Mobilize systems and accelerate finance flows toward the 2030 Agenda and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, taking forward solutions to increase long-term SDG investments.

Climate Change - Achieve clear, measurable, and public commitments from the private sector to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. Help create public-private platforms in critical high-emitting areas and scale up the services required to adapt to the impacts of climate change.

Health - Support countries achieve good health and well-being for all, within the context of the 2030 Agenda, focusing on significant emerging global health threats that require stronger multistakeholder partnership and action.

Digital Cooperation - Meet the needs of the Fourth Industrial Revolution while seeking to advance global analysis, dialogue, and standards for digital governance and digital inclusiveness.

Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women - Foster partnerships and coalitions at all levels for full participation and equal opportunities of women . Promote equal pay to women for work of fair value across sectors and occupations as well as within them.

Education and Skills - Promote public-private partnerships to address global reskilling and lifelong learning for the future requirements for work, and empower youth with competencies for life and decent work.

The leadership across the United Nations will engage in and utilize the different platforms provided by the World Economic Forum to advance impact in the above areas. Both institutions will annually review the partnership to streamline collaboration further, take stock of results, and identify additional areas to invest in efforts jointly.

“A King rules by divine right. He carries in him an authority from God, or man will never give it him.

Can I choose my own King?

I can choose my own King ‘Popinjay’, and play what farce or tragedy I may with him: but he who is to be my Ruler, whose will is to be higher than my will, was chosen for me in Heaven.”

— Thomas Carlyle, Sartor Resartus.

Paris, France, 06 June 2019 — The Italian city of Fabriano will host this year’s UNESCO Creative Cities Conference from 10 to 15 June. A cradle of papermaking in Europe since the second half of the 13th century and throughout the Renaissance, Fabriano joined the UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN) six years ago in the field of crafts and folk art.

Sergio Mattarella, President of Italy; Gabriele Santarelli, Mayor of Fabriano; Ernesto Ottone R., Assistant Director-General for Culture of UNESCO; and Maria Francesca Merloni, UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for Creative Cities; will open the first plenary session of the meeting on 12 June 2019.

Some 400 delegates representing the 180 cities of UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network will debate this year’s theme, “The Ideal City,” and exchange their diverse experiences and ideas for meeting the challenges of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at the city level.

A record 50 mayors will participate in the conference, which will bring together municipal decision-makers from Al-Ahsa (Saudi Arabia) to Buenos Aires (Argentina), from Dakar (Senegal) to Budapest (Hungary), and from Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) to Wuhan (China). They will examine ways to anchor culture in development frameworks and policies and promote sustainable urban regeneration, social cohesion, employment, and entrepreneurship.

Flagship initiatives featured at this year’s conference will include the Lend a Hand project targeting vulnerable communities in Nassau (Bahamas), a regeneration program promoting green areas and walkability in Porto-Novo (Benin) and an innovative citizen-led project aimed at engaging youth in Geelong (Australia).

Launched in 2004, the UNESCO Creative Cities Network includes 180 cities from 72 countries focusing on seven fields of activity: crafts and folk art, media arts, design, film, gastronomy, literature, and music.

Representatives of the three UNESCO Creative Cities from India — Jaipur, Varanasi, and Chennai — are also expected to attend the conference.

New Delhi — On 30 April, celebrating International Jazz Day 2019, the new Piano Man Jazz Club in Gurgaon, jointly with UNESCO New Delhi, will bring on stage young jazz talent from all over India and the world. India’s leading Latin Jazz Pianist, Pradyumna Singh Manot will drive The Piano Man Gurgaon’s first performance. Elena Diletta Friedrich Sciubba on voice, Kunal Netrapal on drums, and Sonic Shori on bass will accompany him.

The UNESCO New Delhi Director, Eric Falt and the founder of the Piano Man brand, Arjun Sagar Gupta, will take the stage with the band to welcome all the guests on the occasion of International Jazz Day, which will also be celebrated at other locations in India — including Mumbai, Goa, Hyderabad, and Bengaluru.

UNESCO proclaimed 30 April as the International Jazz Day in 2011, upon a proposal made by legendary jazz pianist and composer Herbie Hancock, who is also a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for Intercultural Dialogue. The Day aims to recognize the power of jazz music to promote peace, dialogue, and mutual understanding, and its diplomatic role of uniting people in all corners of the globe. This year the global celebration will take place in Melbourne, Australia and International Jazz Day will be celebrated in more than 190 countries around the world.

“Jazz has its roots in the struggle for freedom and resistance against oppression. This music, with its various styles, has been embraced and integrated into many cultures, morphing into new forms of expression, infinitely resonating with the diversity of song and sound across the globe,” says UNESCO Director-General, Audrey Azoulay in her message on the occasion of International Jazz Day 2019.

The Piano Man first location in New Delhi has hosted almost 1,400 concerts in the three and a half years since its inception, including some of the finest musicians from all over the world. The opening of a second Piano Man location in Gurgaon marks the beginning of a new journey for the brand and its mission.

United Nations, New York, 28 March 2019 — The UN is hailing a new Security Council resolution adopted on Thursday as a landmark step in suppressing the funding of terror groups worldwide.

Speaking via video-link from Rome, where he has been meeting specialist Italian law enforcement officials to discuss building closer ties to tackle the problem, the UN’s counter-terrorism chief, Vladimir Voronkov, said that the adoption comes at a “critical time,” with recent attacks demonstrating that terror groups continue to have access to both legal and illegal sources of funding.

Underscoring the necessity for active collaboration and targeted efforts, to achieve “concrete results” in the fight against terrorism and terrorist financing, Mr. Voronkov said that Resolution 2462 on Countering the Financing of Terrorism, pulls together previous resolutions to create a consolidated document that also covers several critical emerging issues.

The resolution calls for the UN Office of Counter-Terrorism (UNOCT) to play a leading role in identifying ways to suppress terrorist financing. The UN Office of Counter-Terrorism (UNOCT) was set up in 2017 to strengthen the Organization’s ability to implement s global counter-terrorism strategy.

Mr. Voronkov identified three priorities. The first is expanding the focus of the UNOCT to cover intelligence sharing, risk assessments, and public-private partnerships. The second priority is the development of a comprehensive approach to the problem.

The third priority is to work closely with the Financial Action Task Force, an inter-governmental body which sets standards for combating money laundering, terrorist financing and other related threats to the integrity of the international financial system and regional regulators.

Marshall Billingslea, President of the Financial Action Task Force, and Mercy Buku, an expert in the countering of terrorist financing, also briefed the Security Council on the subject.

Paris, February 11, 2019 — On the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science celebrated on 11 February, the L’Oréal Foundation and UNESCO have announced the laureates of the 21st International Awards For Women in Science, which honors outstanding women scientists, from all over the world. These exceptional women are recognized for the excellence of their research in the fields of material science, mathematics and computer science.

Each laureate receives €100,000, and their achievements will be celebrated alongside those of 15 promising young women scientists from around the world at an awards ceremony on 14 March at UNESCO’s Headquarters in Paris.

EXTENDING THE AWARD TO MATHEMATICS AND COMPUTER SCIENCE

Mathematics is a prestigious discipline and a source of innovation in many domains. However, it is also one of the scientific fields with the lowest representation of women at the highest level. Since the establishment of the three most prestigious international prizes for the discipline (Fields, Wolf, and Abel), only one woman mathematician has been recognized, out of a total of 141 laureates.

The L’Oréal Foundation and UNESCO have therefore decided to reinforce their efforts to empower women in science by extending the International Awards dedicated to material science to two more research areas: mathematics and computer science.

Two mathematicians now figure among the five laureates receiving 2019 For Women in Science Awards. Claire Voisin, one of five women to have won a gold medal from the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), and the first women mathematician to enter the prestigious Collège de France; and Ingrid Daubechies of Duke University (USA), the first woman researcher to head the International Mathematical Union.

Since 1998, the L’Oréal Foundation, in partnership with UNESCO, has worked to improve the representation of women in scientific careers, upholding the conviction that the world needs science, and science needs women.
