"Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defences of peace must be constructed." (UNESCO Constitution) "A peace based exclusively upon the political and economic arrangements of governments would not be a peace which could secure the unanimous, lasting and sincere support of the peoples of the world, and that the peace must therefore be founded, if it is not to fail, upon the intellectual and moral solidarity of mankind. The purpose of the Organization is to contribute to peace and security by promoting collaboration among the nations through education, science and culture in order to further universal respect for justice, for the rule of law and for the human rights and fundamental freedoms which are affirmed for the peoples of the world, without distinction of race, sex, language or religion, by the Charter of the United Nations." The Constitution of UNESCO was signed by 37 countries in London on the 16th November 1945. It came into force on the 4th November 1946.

AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL: HUMAN RIGHTS EDUCATION Human rights education is both a lens through which to observe the world and a methodology for teaching and leading others. Amnesty International believes that learning about human rights is the first step toward respecting, promoting and defending those rights. The Human Rights Education program (HRE) was established in order to facilitate the teaching of human rights. Designed to support teachers of kindergarten through college as well as educators working in non-formal settings such as community associations and cultural forums, HRE is dedicated to promoting the human rights principles and positive value system that are set forth in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
