Address: UNESCO BUILDING at 7 Place de Fontenoy

Please use the entrance at 7 Place de Fontenoy in the 7th arondissement – if you take a taxi, sometimes they drop you off at the back entrance on Avenue Suffren, then you have to walk two blocks to get to the main entrance, so insist for the taxi to take you to the main entrance.

If you come by metro, you can use one of three lines – 6, 8 or 10. The stops closest to UNESCO are Cambronne for line 6, La Motte-Picquet for line 8 and Segur for line 10.

ID: We will have sent UNESCO a list of attendees on January 10th. Please bring Photo ID which will be requested at the entrance. 

ARRIVAL: UNESCO opens at 9:00am. Saiye Gülser has been kind enough to allow us to convene at 8:00 am and Joy, her assistant will meet us at the entrance, once we have passed security at 8:00 to ensure a smooth arrival. 

LUNCH: Paying with cash in the cafeteria will allow for a faster checkout.
