Angola and UNESCO analyze conditions for Luanda Biennial

The Minister of State for the Social Area, Dalva Ringote, and the UNESCO Regional Director for Central Africa, Paul Coustere, analyzed the conditions for the Luanda Biennial, in a meeting that took place this Tuesday.


The meeting served to analyze the conditions and the work plan for the 3rd edition of the Pan-African Forum for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence – Luanda Biennial, which the country will host in October this year, says a government statement, to which VerAngola had access.

Cited in the note, Paul Coustere – who was speaking to the press after the meeting – referred that the minister highlighted the relevance of the event for the country, for the African continent and for the world. "The minister said that it is important to frame the Biennial of Luanda in all aspects for peace in Angola, in Africa and in the whole world. The culture of peace belongs to all those who fight or work in favor of freedom, education and of sustainable development", said the official.

The regional director for Central Africa at UNESCO also said that UNESCO is committed to strengthening collaboration with Angola, for the realization of other projects and programs in areas such as culture and education.

"We are also going to take advantage of this mission in Angola to find other development and cooperation partners between Angola and UNESCO. We were with the Ministry of Education yesterday [Monday] and tomorrow [Wednesday] we will be with other ministries to reinforce other projects and programmes. The highlight of the mission is the Biennial of Luanda, but we also have other areas of cooperation between Angola and UNESCO", he pointed out, quoted in the statement.

During the Luanda Biennale, adds the note, "parallel activities" will be developed, namely the Kongo International Festival - Festikongo, 2023 edition which, according to Paul Coustere, will have "the institutional and technical support of UNESCO".

It should be noted that Angola is going to hold, in partnership with UNESCO and the African Union, the 3rd edition of the Luanda Biennial. The event will take place from the 12th to the 14th of October this year, and will have as its motto "Education, Culture of Peace and Citizenship as Tools for the Sustainable Development of the Continent".

"The Bienal de Luanda is a cross-border discussion and concertation platform that promotes actions that contribute to the strengthening of the Pan-African movement and the maintenance of a culture of peace and non-violence on the continent and in the world, combined with the aspirations of the Union African", reads the statement.

With previous editions having taken place in September 2019 and October 2021, the event was instituted "by decision No. 558/XXIV of the African Union and adopted at the 24th Session of the Assembly of Heads of States and Government of this continental organization", completes the note.
