The event scheduled for this Friday afternoon at the headquarters of the multilateral agency is part of the 41st General Conference, one of its governance bodies, which is in session from November 9 to 24 in Paris, with issues such as the strengthening of education, ethics in Artificial Intelligence and the promotion to the Open Science concept.

Speaking about the anniversary, its Director-General Audrey Azoulay stressed that UNESCO emerged from the moral and material ruins of the World War II (1939-1945), under the premise that peace must be built upon the “intellectual and moral solidarity of humanity.”

For his part, Communication and Public Information Director Matthieu Guevel told Prensa Latina that UNESCO has been since its founding the intellectual agency of the United Nations, with an important contribution to cooperation and multilateralism.

According to Guevel, the multilateral agency has worked tirelessly since 1946 in favor of culture and the integration of people, under the criterion that if we can understand each other, we will be capable of building peace and progress.
