Africa is a global priority for UNESCO

With a young population and an abundance of natural resources, Africa is undoubtedly the continent of the future.

Africa is one of UNESCO's two global priorities. The Operational Strategy for Priority Africa 2022-2029 has been developed based on consultations with Member States, including the UNESCO Africa Group, programme sectors at Headquarters in Paris, field offices in Africa and the Bureau of Strategic Planning. The team of the UNESCO Chair on 'Physical Activity and Health in Educational Settings' endeavours to support the goals of UNESCO in its field of research with its focus, strategy and its own goals and projects.
