Culture and Education are the backbone of sustainable development.
Together, they shape who we are and who we will become.

UNESCO works to engage its interdisciplinary mandate in culture and education as part of a renewed vision of education grounded in the respect for cultural diversity and human rights. In an increasingly diverse, interdependent and volatile world, what counts as high quality education has evolved. Having the breadth of skills to understand, adapt and thrive in the face of changing social, economic and technological demands is paramount. Creativity, innovation, critical-thinking, resilience and empathy – this skillset is vital to harness the promises and mitigate challenges today and in the future. Working at the nexus of culture and education, UNESCO mobilizes its expertise and resources to support its Member States and a broad range of stakeholders in policy development and cross-cutting actions. From heritage to the cultural and creative industries, UNESCO strives to integrate culture in a wide range of education contexts and approaches to better equip learners of all ages with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to fulfill their potential, face future challenges, and forge more equitable and peaceful futures for all.
