“Since wars begin in the minds of men (and women), it is in the minds of men (and women) that the defenses of peace must be constructed.”  UNESCO Constitution, 1945

The mission of UNESCO is one of peace and security for all. UNESCO works to deliver this through forging international cooperation in education, science, culture, and communication & information.

The UKNC supports the UK’s contribution to UNESCO and brings the benefits of UNESCO to the UK. The Commission is supported by grant funding from the UK government, but is an independent, not-for-profit organisation.
