Five year agreement

On November 23, FC Barcelona and Unesco signed an agreement at the headquarters of the United Nations Education Science and Culture Organisation in Paris. The historic agreement will last for five years and will mainly work on issues related to the fight against racism and violence in sport, awareness of drug problems and the development of the education and literacy of children at risk.
