Docip is happy to share with you that on October 30th UNESCO recognized 33 years of “Statements made by Indigenous Peoples at the United Nations 1982 to 2015” as a key  element of World Heritage. (More information on the collection).

With the aim of sharing the good news with public opinion, as well as with our close partners, we would like to invite you to a press conference, followed by a celebration cocktail. The conference will take place next Tuesday, November 14 at the Club Suisse de la Presse, at « La Pastorale » Route de Ferney 106, 1202 Geneva.
 
Youtube: Un pont vers l'avenir (Docip)With the inclusion of Docip’s Collection in the Memory of the World International Register, UNESCO recognizes the priceless value of those documents created by indigenous people around the globe on behalf of their communities. They contain juridical, historical, and cultural arguments and claims on a variety of topics addressed by the UN which are important for the development of international law, the advancement of indigenous people's rights at a national level, and the inspiration of younger generations.
