UNESCO wished to solicit independent and recognized personalities to the High Level Reflection Group with the objective in order to feed the undertaken reflection within the Organization on the emerging global trends and challenges, which are likely to have an impact on UNESCO’s field of competence.
The High Level Reflection Group
Initially appointed in September 2019, this Group of 12 of scientists, historians, philosophers, writers, academics and other figures has now started its work. It is expected that this Group will enrich and shed light on UNESCO's Medium-Term Strategy for 2022-2029, which is under preparation and will be adopted by UNESCO's Member States in 2021.
Dismantling discrimination and racism crucial to creating « a new world based on tolerance, peace and equality »
