The Hellenic Cultural and Educational Club for UNESCO is a non-profit organization based in Athens. The Club aspires to contribute to the dissemination of the work and programs of the international organization for the promotion of culture, education and science. This effort is attempted through the organization of conferences, symposia, seminars and lectures directly related to UNESCO Priorities and Programs at local and international level.
The aim is to raise the awareness of the world community and especially of young people on issues of peace, democracy, equality, freedom, acceptance of diversity and human rights.
The Hellenic Cultural and Educational Club for UNESCO, in collaboration with international and Greek organizations as well as educational institutions from around the world, hopes to make a decisive contribution to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, as described in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015.
In 2018 the Hellenic Cultural and Educational Club for UNESCO has launched the World Cultural Heritage Youth Symposium with the support of the Hellenic National Commission for UNESCO under the auspices of the International Olympic Academy (www.olympiayouthsymposium.com )
The World Olympic Summer School is the second international projected developed by the Club.
