Coming Events: Launch of the International Year of Water Cooperation 2013

"...since wars begin in the minds of men it is in the minds of men that the defenses of Peace must be constructed...Peace must be founded, if it is not to fail, upon the intellectual and moral solidarity of mankind." (Constitution of UNESCO)

 

UNESCO works to create the conditions for dialogue among civilizations, cultures and peoples, based upon respect for commonly shared values. It is through this dialogue that the world can achieve global visions of sustainable development encompassing observance of human rights, mutual respect and the alleviation of poverty, all of which are at the heart of UNESCO’S mission and activities.
