Organisation des Nations Unies pour l'éducation, la science et la culture
There was broad agreement on the continued relevance of the five main functions of the Organization, as defined in the 31 C/4: a laboratory of ideas (the intellectual function), a standard setter (the normative function), a clearing house (the knowledge-sharing function), a capacity-builder in Member States, and a catalyst for international cooperation. Many participants strongly underlined the importance of UNESCO's ethical mandate and recommended that an ethical dimension should be part of all major programmes and that they should be pursued in an intersectoral manner. The Organization could play a key role in promoting common ethical values in areas such as education for peace, dialogue among cultures and civilizations, all scientific disciplines, environment and information and the media. Several participants also emphasized that the function of a clearing house was critical to promote the exchange of information and knowledge sharing, especially in the sciences.
