It was a proud moment for India when little Aarya was invited by Ms. Mechtild Rossler, Director of the UNESCO World Heritage Centre, Paris, to participate in ‘The Opening Ceremony of the 43rd World Heritage Committee in Baku, Azerbaijan.’ Aarya represented India and was honored to share stage with Her Excellency, Ms. Audrey Azoulay, Director General, UNESCO. She presented narratives from her book ‘Ahmedabad, my city my heritage’ in front of 2500 dignitaries from 180 countries, including ministers, ambassadors of international organizations, along with members of Azerbaijani government.

In April 2020, UNESCO World Heritage Centre, Paris invited Aarya to advocate worldwide campaign “Share our Heritage” to call upon children around the world to participate for ‘Little Artist’s exhibition’. Through this campaign, children from 55 countries shared global cultural diversity. It was a rare opportunity given to Aarya to bring positive message of hope and to engage children to enhance their understanding of global cultural diversity during difficult times of COVID- 19.

In January 2021, Aarya was invited as Guest of Honor in presence of Chief Guest, Hon.

 Through her passion for writing, Aarya has continued to inspire thousands of children. All of her books have been published in digital platforms like UNESCO Digital library and UNESCO Global Citizenship Education. Through these platforms, her books are read by readers of all age worldwide.

In her role, Aarya actively contributes in raising awareness through her campaigns. She sets a path for younger generation like her, and urges fellow citizens to take steps towards preservation of heritage and sustainable living.
