More than fifty years after the creation of the first UNESCO Club, the Organization has today the privilege to count on the action of almost 3800 Clubs in 80 countries.
Conscious of the growing role of civil society in decision-making relating to public life, the UNESCO Medium- Term Strategy 2002-2007 underlines the unique role that UNESCO Clubs, Centres, and Associations can play in education to achieve sustainable development, in cooperation with other partners of civil society.
News: Database of Associations, Centres and Clubs for UNESCO
To improve information flow and communication between the UNESCO Secretariat and its numerous partners, the Section of UNESCO Clubs and New Partnerships opened access via Internet to its database on its cooperation with Associations, Centres and Clubs for UNESCO.
The First World Congress of UNESCO Clubs met at UNESCO Headquarters in April 1978 and unanimously adopted the principle of establishing a World Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centres and Associations (WFUCA).
- The Federation was officially founded in July 1981, and its General Secretariat is located in Paris, France. The Federation provides general co-ordination services and encourages active co-operation among National Federations through interregional and subregional programmes.
