Kia ora tātou,
In response to the current situation, and New Zealand's level 4 lockdown, the National Commission is seeking to continue to support the values of UNESCO by opening up applications for minor grant projects that aim to develop social inclusion in light of social and physical distancing.
Our work is about connecting people through ideas and fostering peace through dialogue and we encourage you all to stay connected and support each other. We are going to need a strong, inclusive society now more than ever.
We would like to support creative thinking that will build social inclusion – albeit at a physical distance. The National Commission is now inviting applications from people with ideas for projects that can connect us all in these disparate times.
For more information, visit our website: https://unesco.org.nz/awards-and-grants/minor-grants/
We’ll be sharing information from UNESCO and from organisations whose work is also focused on education, the sciences, culture and information and communication on our Facebook page over the coming weeks.
We wish you safety, strength and connection during this difficult time.
National Commission Chair
