Since 1945, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) works to build peace in the minds of men and woemn, fostering tolerance and mutual understanding. Jordan joined UNESCO on June 14th, 1950 and in 1986, Amman became the regional office for Education, Science and Communications. In 1996, UNESCO Amman was designated as a Regional Office for Culture and Communication and in the year 2000, it became the National Office for Jordan.
All you need to know about our Strategy
"We are living in a unique period in human history. The dawn of a technological revolution, combined with climate challenges, heralds a major anthropological transition. These changes raise questions about humanity itself. Faced with technological developments, environmental changes, and at the risk of these transformations deepening inequalities between and within societies, we must now, more than ever, cultivate, preserve and transmit what makes us human.
This ambition summarizes UNESCO’s core work since its inception. Today we carry out this kind of work in all areas of our mandate so that education, culture, science, and information can serve to build a more just and sustainable future.
The purpose of this publication is to present some of UNESCO’s specific achievements over the past year. This short and illustrated report tells the stories of the men and women who transform the ideals of the Organization into reality."
Audrey Azoulay, Director General
