United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization

Activities

The activities carried out by the Clubs are varied and depend, above all, on the age and the interests of their members and also on the financial resources and means of action available.
Irrespective of their nature and scope, these initiatives foster the dissemination of UNESCO’s principles and objectives in civil society. These Clubs therefore make it possible to publicize the values represented by the Organization in local communities.

For example, the Clubs’ action involves:

  • the dissemination of general principles such as those set out in the Preamble to the Constitution of UNESCO, the United Nations Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights;

  • participation in the celebration of international days and years proclaimed by the General Assembly of the United Nations and the General Conference of UNESCO;

  • the promotion of literacy activities, the preservation and presentation of the cultural heritage;

  • the organization of study camps for young people;

  • education for the prevention of AIDS;

  • the publication of newsletters and information documents;
