Taman Wetland, Putrajaya 28 May 2016 – Malaysians from all walks of life got to witness the 6th celebration of Hari UNESCO Malaysia with the theme “Inclusiveness” which involved the participation of school children, teachers, parents and various organizations.

The celebration of Hari UNESCO is something that is very significant  to Malaysia especially because  at the same time we also celebrate our success  at the  38th UNESCO  General Conference in November 2015.  Malaysia’s contribution to UNESCO is increasing ever year. Malaysia’s effort in preserving and maintaining our national heritage  received international recognition. The 4 world heritage site are : Taman Negara Kinabalu, Taman Negara Gunung Mulu, Malacca & George Town and Lembah Lenggong Archaeology  Site.

Each booth sat up at the Hari UNESCO 2016 has its own function and uniqueness . Public  were given the opportunity to learn more about education, science and most importantly the social culture of Malaysia. There are also concerts, traditional dancers and music throughout the night to entertain visitors. There is also the Wayang Pacak  where  in the  pre- war era people  go to see movies in open space or field.  Well, needless to say, every UNESCO Celebration is all about education in an entertaining way.
