United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)
The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) was founded in 1945 in the hope of opening a peaceful dialogue between cultures based on mutual respect and understanding. This committee concerns itself primarily with the building of peace, sustainable development, and the eradication of poverty through education and the development and sharing of technology. UNESCO’s two current priorities are gender equality and development in Africa, but it discusses issues as diverse as bioethics and the preservation of cultural heritage. It is composed of 195 members and 8 associate members, so it functions as a forum for a wide range of cultural and political viewpoints.
Topic 1: The Economic and Social Status of Women in Agricultural Communities
Topic 3: The Role of Media in Combating Human Rights Violations
