Multilateralism is a word you hear a lot in Geneva, but let us not forget its meaning – it conveys the idea of international cooperation in today’s interconnected world. The challenges we face – from climate change to global health – show that this cooperation between states is more important than ever.
The Delegation of the European Union to the United Nations Office in Geneva has installed a photo exhibition on the benefits that organisations that uphold this value of cooperation bring to the world, in partnership with the UN and the City of Geneva. It is an opportunity for over 30 international organisations, including CERN, to show the impact of their work in Geneva on citizens around the globe.
You can visit the free exhibition on the Quai Wilson, between the Bains des Pâquis and the Parc de la Perle du Lac, throughout September. The inauguration took place on 6 September 2021, with opening remarks by EU Ambassador Lotte Knudsen, High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet, WIPO Director-General Daren Tang and Deputy High Commissioner for Refugees Kelly Clements.
