On Tuesday evening, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa was in Paris to attend an event celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of UNESCO. The Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, was also there, as was UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova. The event, entitled "UNESCO: 70 years in the service of human dignity," offered a look at the organization's founding and its future goals. The Grand Duchess met with other attendees, including members of the United Nations System Chief Executives' Board for Coordination (CEB).

For a playback of the live stream of the event, see here. No photos yet of the Grand Duchess, but they'll be added if they're made available. Post and they shall appear: now on the Cour website.

Grand Duchess Maria Teresa has been a Goodwill Ambassador for UNESCO since 1997. Her efforts have focused on microfinance, social economy, and international education rights for girls and women.
