In the true spirit of ASEAN cultural diplomacy, regional artists shared their talents online with a Papua traditional song by YouTube Content Creator Zeva Aulia from Indonesia, and a tourism vlog directed by Philippine Film Ambassador Rhadem Musawah.

As referenced by colleagues from UNESCO in Almaty and Vietnam, sustainable tourism, or “tourism with a conscience,” is indeed a vehicle for peacebuilding and development. Arina Myassoyed, UNESCO Youth Focal Point for Central Asia, concluded that beyond the gaps that the internet has bridged, at the heart of the matter are people, especially the tech-natives, the next generation of tourists, cultural enthusiasts, peacebuilders, and leaders who have both gift and responsibility – to build renewed capacities, share innovative skills and co-create a sustainable world, that truly leaves nobody behind, both online and offline.
