UNESCO and the IYHF -- towards an active working partnership
The beginnings of the formal relationship between UNESCO and the International Youth Hostel Federation (IYHF) can be traced to April 2003 when UNESCO's Director-General, Koïchiro Matsuura and IYHF's President, Harish Saxena signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). This MoU formalises and concretises the already existing partnership between both Organisations and provides a concrete framework for future cooperation. It provided for a new focus on a three-year Campaign for International Peace and Understanding, the annual celebration of International Youth Day (12 August - proclaimed by the UN in 1999) and awareness-raising activtities pertaining to HIV/AIDS in the context of preventive education.
