Belarus and UNESCO: the Milestones of Cooperation

65 years of Belarus’ membership in UNESCO


In 2019, the Republic of Belarus marks the 65th anniversary of joining the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). For many years, our country has maintained fruitful and dynamic relations with this international organization.

UNESCO is an important partner of Belarus in solving socio-cultural challenges, as well as a unique platform for promoting the achievements in culture, science, education, information technology, the state’s foreign policy initiatives and mutually beneficial bilateral contacts.

The Republic of Belarus attaches great importance to the cooperation with UNESCO. The country takes an active position in the governing and subsidiary bodies of the organization, makes a significant contribution to shaping its policy and agenda, participates in the development of normative documents, and initiates new fields of work.

The anniversary of Belarus’s membership in UNESCO is a landmark event and a good reason to show the results of this fruitful cooperation.

This virtual project reveals the most important areas of cooperation between the Republic of Belarus and UNESCO.
