26. 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 UNESCOS mission and activities.
The broad goals and concrete objectives of the international community as set out in the internationally agreed development goals, including the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) underpin all UNESCOs strategies and activities. Thus UNESCOs unique competencies in education, the sciences, culture and communication and information contribute towards the realization of those goals.
UNESCOs mission is to contribute to the building of peace, the eradication of poverty, sustainable development and intercultural dialogue through education, the sciences, culture, communication and information.

Please contact your congressperson. This needs to be addressed.
