International non-governmental organizations maintaining formal relations with UNESCO

  • As distinct and autonomous entities, international non-governmental organizations must not use the logo of UNESCO on a permanent basis.
  • Instead, international non-governmental organizations may use the sentence “NGO maintaining official relations with UNESCO” to state their relationship with UNESCO for the purpose of information and promotion.
  • However, international non-governmental organizations may request UNESCO’s authorization to use UNESCO’s logo for events under patronage or covered by contractual arrangement.
