NOTRE ENTREPRISE

L'UNESCO est l'Organisation des Nations Unies pour l'Education, la Science et la Culture. L'UNESCO cherche à instaurer la paix par la coopération internationale en matière d'éducation, de science et de culture. Les programmes de l'UNESCO contribuent à la réalisation des objectifs de développement durable définis dans l'Agenda 2030 adopté par l'Assemblée générale des Nations Unies en 2015.

NOTRE VISION
La coopération politique et économique des gouvernements ne suffit pas à assurer l’adhésion durable et sincère des peuples. La paix doit être fondée sur le dialogue, la compréhension mutuelle ainsi que la solidarité intellectuelle et morale de l'humanité.

Dans cet esprit, l'UNESCO développe des outils éducatifs pour aider chaque individu à vivre en tant que citoyen du monde. L'UNESCO travaille pour que chaque enfant et chaque adulte ait accès à une éducation de qualité. L'UNESCO renforce les liens entre les Nations en promouvant le patrimoine culturel et l'égalité de toutes les cultures. L'UNESCO favorise les programmes et les politiques scientifiques qui sont des plateformes de développement et de coopération. L'UNESCO défend la liberté d'expression, un droit fondamental et une condition essentielle pour la démocratie et le développement. Servant de laboratoire d'idées, l'UNESCO aide les pays à adopter des normes internationales et gère des programmes qui favorisent la libre circulation des idées et le partage des connaissances.

La vision fondatrice de l'UNESCO est née en réponse à une guerre mondiale marquée par des violences racistes et antisémites. 70 ans après et de nombreuses luttes de libération plus tard, le mandat de l'UNESCO est plus pertinent que jamais. La diversité culturelle est attaquée et de nouvelles formes d'intolérance, de rejet des faits scientifiques et de menaces à la liberté d'expression menacent la paix et les droits humains. Le devoir de l'UNESCO est de réaffirmer les missions humanistes de l'éducation, de la science et de la culture.
