CAMPUS UNESCO: inspire the citizens of tomorrow

UNESCO CAMPUS, launched in 2014, intends to put the expertise of UNESCO teams and partners, at the service of youth, for a better understanding of major world challenges.

Practical information for schools

The CAMPUSES will be organized throughout the period 2017-2020 between September and June during the school year, one or two times per month.
