FC Barcelona to sign a historic alliance with UNESCO


On Friday November 23, FC Barcelona, through its Foundation, will sign a collaboration agreement in Paris with Unesco, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.

The event will be held at the Unesco headquarters and will be attended by president Joan Laporta Unesco general manager Koichiro Matsuura. The agreement also involves the participation of the UNESCOCAT centres and the Spanish National Commission for Cooperation with UNESCO.

Little more than a year after signing an agreement with Unicef, FC Barcelona’s Foundation has settled another strategic alliance in order to further establish the club’s position as a caring institute and to promote the fact that it is “more than a club in the world”.

It is the first time that a sports club’s foundation has signed a global agreement with Unesco to promote universal education, one which will be especially aimed at children and the use of sport as en educational tool.

The main areas of collaboration established for the agreement with UNESCO are:

• The promotion of the values of sport through educational and awareness activities, with special attention to the fight against racism and violence and sport.

• The promotion of the values of sport through raising awareness of the dangers of doping.

• The fostering of social inclusion, education and literacy in the most underprivileged sectors of children and youth.

• The creation of a Unesco – FC Barcelona Chair for education and citizenship through sport.
