Cooperation with NGOs

UNESCO works closely with a variety of international, regional and local youth and student organizations.

These partnerships intend to be a space for the identification, testing and implementation of youth-led ideas and innovative approaches. Young people are generally interested in a culture of teamwork, democratic participation and concrete action and results.
