United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
The United Nations Economic and Social Council is a UN agency specialized on enhancing international collaboration through educational, scientific, and cultural reforms. It is composed of 193 member states and 11 associate members.
Furthermore, the members of the UNESCO aim to contribute to the eradication of poverty, building peace, and ensuring sustainable development on a global level. Even though the headquarters are located in Paris, there are over 50 field offices all around the globe.
The Council has been a part of the United Nations ever since its foundation, but its roots were established even earlier during the 1920's in the League of Nations. Therefore, it is one of the oldest of the UN committees and bears great responsibility.
