UNESCO Campuses: our expertise at the service of tomorrow's citizens

UNESCO offers thematic information sessions, specifically dedicated to students aged 14-17 years, who mostly come from educational priority zones in Paris and its surrounding suburbs.  These sessions aim to teach this new generation of citizens about the important contemporary issues UNESCO focuses its work on, such as citizenship, peace, girls' education, freedom of expression, the values of sport, the ocean and climate change.  During these two-hour Campus sessions, the students interact with UNESCO specialists and experts from civil society.

  • If you are a teacher and would like your class to participate, please visit our Campus page.
