The world moves, UNESCO too

“We provide a unique international platform where governments, researchers and civil society come together to cast words into action.”

As UNESCO prepares for the 34th session of the General Conference at its Paris Headquarters, another international event in France is also drawing the world’s attention – the 6th Rugby World Cup. Confined for a long time to a select few countries, this sport has grown to global proportions to encompass all continents today. While the spirit of the game has remained the same, the sport itself has undoubtedly evolved; new rules have been introduced and new traditions formed.
