Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 9, No. 1. March 1, 1946

UNESCO Month

UNESCO Month

As the location of the General Conference will [unclear: vary] from year to year, it can be expected to arouse considerable public interest in the countries where it takes place. Accordingly it has been suggested that for a few weeks before and during the Conference, the host country should "put its cultural life on show." Special exhibitions of arts and crafts could be held, drama and music festivals could be arranged, and recent scientific achievements could he brought before the public. Delegates would be encouraged to arrive some time before the Conference in order to deliver public lectures. If this were done, the entire educational, scientific and cultural life of the country would receive an impetus similar to that received by the educational community in New Zealand from the New Educational Fellowship Conference held here in 1937.
