Building peace in the minds of men and women

40th Session of the General Conference - 12-27 November 2019

UNESCO General Conference Multimedia

From 12-27 November 2019, UNESCO’s General Conference will host delegations from 193 countries to decide the future of some of the most pressing issues of today. For two weeks, six Commissions, four Committees and about 25 side events involving Heads of States and more than 150 ministers, will turn UNESCO into a laboratory of ideas where “multiculturalism in action” will be seen from the meeting rooms to the corridors of the organization.

Below, you will find video coverage of our General Conference including interviews and special inside looks into our events during November.
