UNESCO Artists for Peace

UNESCO Artists for Peace are internationally-renowned personalities who use their influence, charisma and prestige to help promote UNESCO’s message and programmes. UNESCO works with these distinguished personalities in order to heighten public awareness regarding key development issues and to inform the public what our Organization's action is in these fields.

UNESCO Champions for Sport

UNESCO Champions for Sport are truly outstanding sport personalities, like Formula One World Champion Michael Schumacher, football legend Pelé, Olympic Judo Champion David Douillet, Olympic Champion in pole-vaulting Serhiy Bubka, the legendary hockey player Viatcheslav Fetisov, the Ukrainian Boxing Champions Vitaliy and Wladimir Klitschko and WTA tennis player Justine Henin. This family of world-class athletes purveys UNESCO's message the world over. By the same token, they reflect UNESCO's concerns to promote the values of physical education and sports with a view of building a better future for younger generations.
