UNESCO highlights greater presence in the work of the G20

Paris, Feb 20 (Prensa Latina) The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) acknowledged the Presidency of Brazil for promoting a greater contribution of the multilateral organization in the work of the G20.

In a press release, UNESCO celebrated that for the first time the organization will contribute as a privileged partner to the work of the Group, which brings together the main industrialized and emerging powers.

UNESCO General Director Audrey Azoulay will visit Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday and Thursday to participate in the G20 foreign ministers’ meeting.

Although since 2020 the body of 194 Member States participates in various mechanisms and contributes in its areas of competence to the Group’s final declarations, this year marks a milestone in cooperation, at the initiative of the Brazilian Presidency.

“For the first time, UNESCO is included in the list of privileged partners of the G20 and participates in the entire process,” she stressed.

In Rio de Janeiro, Azoulay will have a broad agenda, and will take advantage of the forum of foreign ministers to address the organization’s responses to conflicts, actions in favor of quality education, global governance reform and the ethical framework for the use of artificial intelligence.

Rio will host the G20 summit in November, with the participation of three Latin American countries (Argentina, Brazil and Mexico), as well as Germany, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Canada, China, the United States, France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, the Republic of Korea, Russia, South Africa, the United States and Türkiye.

Other participants will be the African Union and the European Union (EU), as well as guest countries and international organizations.
