The panel brought together a range of international experts, including lecturer Patrick Michel at University of Lausanne, who presented the Collart-Palmyra Project, Dr. Zaki Aslan, Regional Representative of ICCROM for the Arab States, Mr. Valery Freland, Executive Director of the ALIPH International alliance for the protection of heritage in conflict areas and Prof. Grazia Tucci, director of the GECO Laboratory – Geomatics for Environment and Conservation of Cultural Heritage. 
 
“Our exhibition and panel on the importance of cultural heritage highlight Switzerland's commitment to preserving cultural and natural sites of exceptional universal value for future generations and to fostering dialogue and tolerance around the world”, said Swiss ambassador HE Massimo Baggi.
Until 20 November, visitors can discover the exhibition on tolerance and inclusivity in the Swiss Pavilion, which features the work Collart-Palmyra Project and the Rafisa ICT 4 Autism programme for vocational education in the ICT field for people in the spectrum of autism.
