The 5th Global Forum of the „UN Alliance of Civilizations“ (UNAOC) took place in Vienna in February 2013. The event’s main topic was „Promoting Responsible Leadership in Diversity and Dialogue“. The UNAOC Youth Event took place the day before the Global Forum and offered young participants the possibility to develop common positions on different questions.
The photo exhibition is the result of a photo competition which has been organized ahead of the Youth Event in order to reach out to a wider public and raise awareness about the issues relevant to the UNAOC. The photos display different perspectives on the topics of the conference. Youth from all over the world have been invited to submit entries in one of the following categories: Perspectives on Religious Pluralism; Freedom of the Media Matters; A new Narrative on Diversity.
The best 24 photographs – among 130 entries – have been chosen for display.
