Permanent Delegation of Denmark at UNESCO headquarters

UNESCO provides Denmark with a platform for cooperation with the governments of other countries on issues of global importance to ensure that we move in the same direction. We wish to strengthen the interaction between the UNESCO-related work carried out in Denmark and expand Denmark’s contribution to and influence on UNESCO’s global work.

To support this endeavor, Denmark has a permanent delegation based at UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris, which plays an important role in the multilateral cooperation and in safeguarding the interests of Denmark.
