Under the auspices of President Abdel-Fatah El-Sisi, the Ministry of Antiquities is to organise two events tomorrow afternoon at the Giza Plateau in support of the recently launched UNESCO campaign #Unite4Heritage that aims at celebrating and safeguarding cultural heritage and diversity around the world.

The first event is a group stand, organised in collaboration of the ministries of defence, social services, youth and sports as well as education and higher education.

Participants will stand arm in arm around the Khufu's Pyramid for 15 minutes.

A number of prominent Egyptian figures are set to participate in the event.

Actresses Laila Eloui, the #Unite4Heritage envoy, and Elham shahin will be among participants.

Later in the day, renowned Egyptian traveller Sherif Lotfy is to tour around the Giza Plateau on his motorbike, carrying the Egyptian flag in his hand.

Lotfy has travelled through several countries, including Austria, the Czech Republic, Poland, Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, and Japan.

Last year, Lotfy started biking from the foot of the Giza Pyramids to Switzerland and Tokyo carrying the Egyptian flag in attempt to promote Egypt’s tourism and break a record in the Guinness Book of Records, spreading a message of peace and love of nature throughout his travels.
