Two days to discover the highlights of a year’s observation of digital innovation worldwide

UNESCO supports the Netexplo Forum
UNESCO supports the Netexplo Forum which will take place over two days at the Organisation’s headquarters on February 14th and 15th, 2013.
UNESCO works to build peace in the minds of men and women through international cooperation in the fields of education, science, culture, information and communication.
Focusing on the development of digital technologies and their cultural and sociological aspects is an essential part of our mission. The new possibilities for dialogue and participation, but also access to knowledge, education and culture, stemming from the growth of internet are naturally at the core of UNESCO’s work and its mandate to serve peace and development by:
- Promoting the free flow of ideas and universal access to information
- Promoting the expression of pluralism and cultural diversity in the media and world information networks
- Promoting access for all to ICTs (information & communication technologies).
The Netexplo Forum meets those goals by recognising promising digital initiatives worldwide and fostering the emergence of knowledge societies. It is an innovative project that aims to create the conditions for dialogue and sharing knowledge between cultures and peoples, based upon respect for universal values.
