UNESCO was involved in a number of parallel events, side-events and partnership initiatives associated with the World Summit.
The Organization has long been concerned with activities related to sustainable development, contribution to many of the streams of action generated by the UN Conference on Environment and Development held in Rio in 1992.
UNESCO's contribution to the World Summit built on its mandate in the fields of education, science, culture and communication, and on key documents and events such as the UNESCO Medium Term Strategy for 2002-2007, a resolution of the UNESCO General Conference on the Johannesburg Summit, the UN Millennium Declaration, the World Conference on Higher Education, the Dakar 'Education for All' Forum, the World Conference on Science in Budapest, the World Conference on Culture and Development in Stockholm. more
