Gustav Fridolin to take part in Nordic annual review with UNESCO in Paris

Today, Thursday 11 May, Minister for Education Gustav Fridolin is in Paris to take part in an annual dialogue on and follow-up of the financial support that Sweden, via the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), has given to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).

This support goes to UNESCO’s work to strengthen freedom of the press and freedom of expression, sex education and the freedom of expression of artistic practitioners. The support also goes to measures to build up research capacity in developing countries to address the growing impact of climate change, for example.

This year, the review has been coordinated with the other Nordic countries.
