UNESCO congratulates to the Kopaonik School of Natural Law for its choosing such a significant and actual topic for its 24th annual Conference.
Relationship between fundamental principles and values such as human dignity, justice, equity, freedom, solidarity and the like, and the individual and joint responsibility is a primary concern of UNESCO.
UNESCO has adopted at its 1997 General Conference the Declaration on Responsibility of the present generation to future generations, where it was emphasized that the present generation must have in mind also the interests of future generations, and that UNESCO must play a particular role in general widening and promoting of that idea.
I wish you most successful work at your 24th Conference, hoping that cooperation between the Kopaonik School of Natural Law and UNESO will continue to develop.
