As part of its newly-formed partnership with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Seabourn is hosting world heritage experts for its Seabourn Conversations enrichment and special guest entertainment program. Conversation topics will include culture, heritage, history and sustainable tourism in preserving World Heritage Sites.
Sharing their insights onboard Seabourn vessels over the next year-and-a-half will be a host of UNESCO advisors and consultants. UNESCO seeks to encourage the identification, protection and preservation of cultural and natural heritage around the world.
There are more than a dozen UNESCO speakers scheduled to take part in Seabourn Conversations on voyages around the world through fall and the year ahead. A sampling includes: Jacinta Nzioka, (Seabourn Sojourn, Dec. 13, 2014) the director of marketing at the Kenya Tourist Board; Dr. Carol Westrik, author of "The Future of World Heritage" for UNESCO's 40th anniversary, and Dr. Juan Jose Negro, a speaker on natural heritage and director of the Doñana Biological Station in Spain (Seabourn Quest, May 12, 2015); and Dr. Ray Bondin (Seabourn Sojourn, May 31, 2015), who has experience in the rehabilitation of heritage sites and served as ambassador and permanent delegate of Malta to UNESCO.
