In a special video address to the participants in the forum UNESCO Director General Irina Bokova pointed to the need to strengthen the role of culture for the sake of sustainable development. The year 2018 will be a European Year of Cultural Heritage, Boriana Hristova said in turn. She pointed out that the relationship between cultural heritage, cultural identity and citizens was of great importance for promoting tolerance in response to growing Euroscepticism and disunity.
