It is with delight that we officially announce imminent cooperation and understanding between ‘Global Shapers Thessaloniki Hub’ and the ‘United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) ’ established by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).
An MOU is essentially an expressed agreement between parties to proceed regarding a reciprocal goal. Although not legally binding, it is a serious declaration that the parties communicate an agreement on a common goal and a desire to see it through to completion. MOUs communicate the expectations and prospects of the people, organizations, institutions or enterprises involved. The signing of an MOU is a significant step for our hub as it ensures a network of support directed towards our projects and aspirations.
It is truly an honor to have established such a relationship with UNESCO. This United Nations agency is focused on promoting world peace and security through international cooperation in Education, the Sciences and Culture.
The MoU was signed based on our mutual commitment to foster projects and advocate policies as stepping stones for development and cooperation. UNESCO challenges issues regarding global citizenship, sustainable development and human rights. As Global Shapers aspire to impact the global community by confronting the most pressing issues of our time, a collaboration with UNESCO is a great and detrimental step towards this goal.
