CCUNESCO recognizes that to promote sustainable development, we must create peaceful and inclusive societies, which is why it prioritizes initiatives focused on:
- respecting human rights
- educating people of all ages to become responsible global citizens
- creating resilient, inclusive and innovative societies
- developing critical thinking
- supporting freedom of the press and freedom of expression
CCUNESCO is therefore actively involved in global efforts aimed at achieving sustainable development in our societies, as envisaged by UN Member States in the 2030 Agenda.
