Natural Sciences

Since its establishment in 1945, with its duty to promote education, science, culture and communication, UNESCO decided to establish a culture of peace by encouraging knowledge creation and exchange, including scientific knowledge thanks to international cooperation, capacity-building and technical assistance for its Member States.

In this way, the Organisation endeavours to provide the essential conditions to create a real dialogue between civilisations, cultures and its people, based on mutual respect and respect for shared values. The Natural Sciences Sector contributes to UNESCO´s mission by using science to consolidate peace, eradicate poverty and promote sustainable development.
