In the very near future, the Institute of International Relations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan plans to open a second UNESCO Club called “Culture of Peace”. Chinar Rustemova, Executive Secretary of the National Commission of Turkmenistan for UNESCO, wrote about this in her article in the newspaper “Neutral Turkmenistan”.
This fact once again proves that Turkmenistan, within the framework of UNESCO requirements and local legislation, stands for the active strengthening of the Clubs of this major international organization in the country, the author notes.
In Turkmenistan, the first UNESCO Club “Languages of the World” was inaugurated in July this year at the Turkmen National Institute of World Languages named after Dovletmammet Azadi. The organizers of this project were the Secretariat of the National Commission of Turkmenistan for UNESCO and the Rector’s office.
Traditionally, the activities of UNESCO Clubs are aimed at uniting young people for joint activities in the field of science, culture and education to promote the humanistic principles and ideals of UNESCO, the ideas of peace and mutual understanding between people; the formation of tolerance, communicative abilities and intercultural competence among students to disseminate and support the initiatives of this organization, to intensify activities to promote and implement its programs and projects.
The basis for the creation of the UNESCO Club is the desire to participate in the peacekeeping, international, educational, cultural, environmental and other activities of the Organization. ///nCa, 1 October 2022
