Peace must be established on the basis of humanitys moral and intellectual solidarity. UNESCO strives to build networks among nations that enable this kind of solidarity, by: Mobilizing for education: so that every child, boy or girl, has access to quality education as a fundamental human right and as a prerequisite for human development. Building intercultural understanding: through protection of heritage and support for cultural diversity. UNESCO created the idea of World Heritage to protect sites of outstanding universal value. Pursuing scientific cooperation: such as early warning systems for tsunamis or trans-boundary water management agreements, to strengthen ties between nations and societies. Protecting freedom of expression: an essential condition for democracy, development and human dignity.WHY IS UNESCO IMPORTANT?UNESCO helps to keep natural wonders, national monuments as well as places housing endangered species of animals safe and prevent the extinction of other species of animals.This also allows our children ,grandchildren and descendants to be able to admire these wonderful Phenomenon.
