Pax Christi International’s Representative, Ms Bérengère Savelieff, delivered a speech during the General Policy Debate of UNESCO 42nd Session of the General Conference (November 11, 2023).
“UNESCO remains fully committed to making the advent of a culture of peace an essential challenge for the international community. It seems crucial to us that these efforts should continue, and that the guidelines for the next two years should take into account the need to make education for peace and nonviolence a common objective for all nations.”
