As wars begin in the minds of women and men, it is in the minds of women and men that the defences of peace must be raised.
UNESCO Constitution Established in 1945, UNESCO now has 193 member states and works to share knowledge, develop programmes and adopt international standards, supporting diversity, dialogue, intellectual solidarity and human rights for lasting peace.
With this in mind, for 75 years, UNESCO has defended freedom of expression, a fundamental right and an essential condition for living fully as a citizen of the world. UNESCO works to ensure that every child and adult has access to a quality education. UNESCO strengthens ties between nations by promoting cultural heritage and equality of all cultures. UNESCO promotes science programmes and policies, which are real platforms for development and cooperation.
At the same time, UNESCO is actively contributing to the implementation of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015, which address global challenges related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice.
75 years later, UNESCO’s mandate is more relevant than ever, in the face of current issues such as environmental degradation, the questioning of the contribution of science, attacks on cultural diversity, the oppression of women or the mass displacement of populations.
UNESCO thus constantly reaffirms its humanist and international cooperation missions, in order to support the foundations of a stable peace, a fair and sustainable development.
