This spirit of Jazz has inspired musicians, as well as poets, painters and writers all over the world, reminding us that culture is far more than entertainment – culture is a window onto the soul, culture is the shape we give to that which we most cherish. Create. Celebrate. Participate. Educate. 30 April is International Jazz Day! This year the global host city is #Havana, #Cuba! Join in via #JazzDay or follow us on @twitter and @facebook

  1. Congratulations to Malala Yousafzai, new UN Messenger of #Peace focused on #GirlsEducation. An inspiring example to the world! #Regram #RG @unitednations: "It is girls like me who believe in education. It is girls like me who are Muslims and are proud of their religion who stand for education and believe in education. And we tell the world that all Muslims believe in education and believe in peace". Congratulations to Malala Yousafzai on her new role as #UnitedNations Messenger of Peace! As youngest-ever Messenger of Peace, Malala will focus on girls' education. After her designation by Secretary-General António Guterres at UN Headquarters in #NYC on Monday (pictured), she had a powerful message for the young girls of the world: "You are the real change-makers. If you do not stand up, change will not come. If you want to see your future bright you have to start working now… Change starts with us and it starts now." 📷: UN Photo / Eskinder Debebe #globalgoals #malala
