Language Days at the United Nations were introduced to celebrate multilingualism and cultural diversity and promote the equal use of the six official languages across the Organization. These days are also an opportunity to sensitize the United Nations community to the history, culture and use of each of these languages. On this occasion, opening remarks will be delivered by H.E. Mr. Nicolas de Rivière, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of France to the United Nations; and Ambassador Ifigeneia Kontoleontos Permanent Observer for the International Organization of La Francophonie to the United Nations. The concert will feature music by composer Eric Neveux, from the motion picture "De son vivant" ("Peaceful"), directed by Emmanuelle Bercot – starring Catherine Deneuve, Benoît Magimel, Cécile de France and Dr. Gabriel Sara. Founded in 2016 by Brenda Vongova, the UNCMS is dedicated to promoting the UN goals at large - through the universal language of music.
