UNESCO: United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization

The Organisation


1995, the United Nations Year for Tolerance, saw the launching of a worldwide campaign for tolerance, non-violence and appreciation of social and cultural diversity. It was UNESCO that initiated this undertaking and assumed the coordinating role of lead agency for the year. A declaration was signed by Member States and six specially-created flags of tolerance were hoisted. All of UNESCO’s sectors organized a wide array of special events, meetings and publications. The German graphic artist Helmut Langer created this poster.
