Belgium is currently a candidate for a seat on UNESCO's World Heritage Committee for the term 2021-2025. We kindly invite you to read the note on Belgium's intentions and credentials for the committee's membership.
Ever since its establishment in 1945, Belgium has been a member state of UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. We all know UNESCO’s World Heritage, but the organization is also deeply committed to quality education for all, worldwide scientific programs and press freedom.
The National Commissions for UNESCO act as a liaison between UNESCO and the governmental bodies, civil society, and academic and cultural circles in a member state. There are two National Commissions for UNESCO in Belgium: the Flemish Commission for UNESCO and the Belgian Francophone and German speaking Commission for UNESCO.
