The day was marked by the presence of highly anticipated Andrea Agnelli, President of Juventus Football Club, who presented his project implemented with the UNESCO Centre of Turin: “Kick racism out of football: Play with me”.

Welcome

pgWelcome to known and unknown friends visiting UNESCO NGO Partners website

Our objective is to create new ties between UNESCO NGO Partners and visitors who discover this website.

Our Committee archives contain issues of the former newsletter Links which appeared three or four times a year to provide information for NGOs. That was in the last century, a time when internet was just taking root.

Now, we propose to provide you with a permanent link through our renovated website. And since good news never appears on its own, we also invite you to join us on Facebook to share the “continuous information” announced at the International Conference of NGOs last December.

This Conference has profoundly renewed our objectives, programmes and working methods. You will notice right away by navigating through our pages. The collective activities proposed for the coming months are all intended to promote closer cooperation with the different UNESCO Sectors and a culture of partnership via a multitude of projects. That is why many links will direct you to a UNESCO site , in order to strengthen this relationship.

Are you a member of a UNESCO Partner NGO? Are you a web visitor interested in civil society? Your views interest us. Your suggestions are welcome. Do not hesitate to join us on the social networks. There will never be too many of us take up and defend our shared ideals!

Enjoy your website visit
