About the Office in Venice

The UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe, located in Venice, is the only UNESCO field office in the region with a specific mandate on programme development and implementation. Our task is to facilitate the advancement of the overall UNESCO programme through specialised as well as interdisciplinary actions in the field of culture and natural sciences, to foster sustainable development, dialogue, reconciliation, and cooperation, with special focus on South-East Europe and the Mediterranean basin. The bureau includes an Antenna in Sarajevo, responsible for implementation of the activities in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It also supports the development and implementation of programmes and participation in UN development frameworks, in other countries of the region, as required. The bureau also has education expertise and hosts a component of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO dedicated to Ocean Literacy.
