nouvelle devise: construire des ponts, briser les frontières

Building bridges, breaking boundaries


The UNESCO Centre of Catalonia – Unescocat was created in 1984 to bring UNESCO to Catalonia and Catalan language and culture to UNESCO. Today, the Centre aims to become a reference in managing diversity and is committed to the essential values of human rights, the culture of peace, cultural plurality, biodiversity and dialogue between cultures. Unescocat works at “building bridges, breaking boundaries” in Catalonia, the Mediterranean and among intergovernmental platforms, through innovative, interdisciplinary action based on the principles of sustainable development, social cohesion, national identity and promoting democracy. Unescocat maintains official relations with UNESCO and has consultative status with ECOSOC and the United Nations Department of Public Information.
