UNESCO

UNITED NATIONS EDUCATIONAL, SCIENTIFIC AND CULTURAL ORGANIZATION

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) - a specialized agency of the United Nations - has the aim of fostering cooperation on the international stage in the areas of education, science, and culture as forces for peace. Indeed, this is expressed in the UNESCO Constitution with the phrase, “Since wars begin in the minds of men and women, it is in the minds of men and women that the defences of peace must be constructed.”

In line with these sentiments, the UNESCO committee in the 2020 edition of Başkent University Model United Nations (BASMUN) will be discussing two issues: Preventing Violent Extremism and Advancing the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. These topics will be discussed within the UNESCO Executive Board, one of three constitutional organs of UNESCO. Participants will be taking on the roles of representatives of Member States that have been elected to the Board by the General Conference.

“This committee is suitable for intermediate delegates.”
 

Agenda Item:

a) Advancing the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda
