Since the first UNESCO Club was founded in Japan, in 1947, Clubs, Centres and Associations for UNESCO have been very valuable partners for the Organization.

Club movement members, who are all volonteers, include people of all ages and nationalities from every walk of life. they share a commitment to UNESCO’s ideals and work to translate them into reality on the ground. Members are therefore well placed to present the views of civil society to decision-makers.

In the half-century the UNESCO Clubs movement has been in existence, the world has witnessed a vast range of events concerning every one of UNESCO’s fields of competence.

In 2010, the movement includes some 3.800 associations, centres and clubs for UNESCO in more than 80 countries throughout the world.

At the international level, the World Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centres and Associations (WFUCA) is responsible for informing, coordinating and mobilizing its members, with UNESCO's support and cooperation.

In the light of civil society's growing role in public policy-making, the Club movement can play a key part in educating citizens, and can contribute to dialogue between cultures and generations for sustainable development.
