UN Photo Exhibition Touring Japan Starts at Roppongi Hills:
“Human Security for All”

Press Release 07-062-E 2007.08.31

The United Nations (UN) will organize a photo exhibition entitled “Human Security for All: Integrated Responses to Protect and Empower People and Communities,” starting from Saturday, 15 September. This event will be co-hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The exhibition aims to showcase the activities that have been conducted by the UN, with the support of the Government of Japan, in order to promote “human security.” It is hoped that through this exhibition, many people in Japan would be able to understand the international actions to protect the human beings from serious and wide-spread threats such as civil conflicts, poverty, environmental degradation and infectious diseases, with the aim of empowering people.

Among the various projects which are being carried out worldwide through the UN Trust Fund for Human Security, the Roppongi Hills Exhibit will highlight five projects operated in Tanzania, Cambodia, Honduras, East Timor and Lebanon. Photos of East Timor include those taken by Actress Ms. Norika Fujiwara.

It is United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) Tokyo’s strong wish that, through this exhibition, many people will learn how the concept of human security is bringing hope to the people and making a difference to their lives. We hope the occasion will serve to make the audience more familiar with Japan’s international cooperation conducted in the global arena today.
