Private Sector

UNESCO cooperates with a wide variety of Private sector partners such as business enterprises, including small and medium-size firms, national, international and multinational corporations, philanthropic and corporate foundations, financial institutions and private individuals to carry out its vast mandate.

Over these last two decades, the Private sector has become an increasingly valuable partner for UNESCO - contributing its core business expertise, creativity, innovative technological solutions, social media outreach, financial and in-kind contributions to achieve shared objectives in the area of Education, Culture, the Sciences and Communication and Information.
