Welcome to the 39th session of the UNESCO General Conference!

The 39th Session of the General Conference of UNESCO will mark a turning point since Member States will adopt the programme of the Organization and elect the next Director-General for the coming four years. It will also provide a special opportunity to reflect on the challenges to be faced in the coming biennium, defining a new path for our Organization.
