In the Media

The Digitizing our shared UNESCO history project aims to contribute to UNESCO's visibility online and throughout the world by making more UNESCO Archives content available using technology that supports changing modes of information and resource delivery. UNESCO communication platforms, including UNESCO's official social media channels, will be used to encourage public engagement in the project and the sharing of archival resources and knowledge.
