Statement of Support by UNESCO Hong Kong Association (UNESCO HK) to UNOSSC

The UNESCO Hong Kong Association (UNESCO HK) is dedicated to facilitating and achieving UNESCO’s mission, creating conditions for dialogue among civilizations, cultures and peoples based upon respect for commonly shared values. It is through this dialogue that the world can achieve global visions of sustainable development encompassing observance of human rights, mutual respect and the alleviation of poverty. The Association strives to work towards the building of peace and to facilitate the sustainable development of society, economy and environment through education, science and culture.

 

The UNESCO HK Association is pleased to be a supporting organisation for the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC) “South-South Entrepreneurship Academy” initiative. This initiative reflects the need of entrepreneurial spirit, design thinking, and SDGs in the daily life of young people for transformation and social inclusion.

 

In March 2018, UNESCO HK Association supported the first Youth Dialogue hosted by Cyberport and co-organised with UNOSSC and Gratia Christian College.  The Statement of support is driven by the positive experience and enthusiasm for the Association’s input to the event shown by participants.
