Engage with UNESCO

Stay connected with UNESCO


Interview with Nadia Nadim on RTL, May 31, 2021.

Designated UNESCO Champion for Girls' and Women's Education in 2019, she spoke about her role with the Organization:

"For me, education is important. If you want to change something in the world, it is with education. That's the reason (for her involvement with UNESCO). They are doing a fantastic job. There are many children who can't study or go to school. I hope this will change because if you want to change something, it will be with school."
