UNITED NATIONS EDUCATIONAL, SCIENTIFIC AND CULTURAL ORGANIZATION
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization was founded in 1945 with the purpose of “contributing to peace and security by promoting international collaboration through educational, scientific, and cultural reforms in order to increase universal respect for justice, the rule of law, and human rights.” UNESCO pursues its objectives through five major programs: education, natural sciences, social/human sciences, culture and communication/information, and has sponsored a myriad of projects relating to education, media, and world history.
This committee is designed for both beginners and experienced delegates alike. Position papers, although strongly recommended, are not required. However, delegates who wish to be considered for an award must submit their position papers by Sunday, January 13, 2019, at 23:59 PST. More information about position papers can be found on page 3 of the Background Guide.
