UNESCO is the United Nations’ specialized agency working in the field of education. UNESCO’s core mandate is to bring education to all, based on the principle that education is a universal human right. Its close links with education ministries and other partners in 193 countries place UNESCO in a key position to press for action. UNESCO believes that education is key to social and economic development. We work for a sustainable world with just societies that value knowledge, promote a culture of peace, celebrate diversity and defend human rights.
