10 years of UNESCO-UNEVOC in Bonn

On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of its establishment in Bonn in 2002, the UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training published a brochure retracing its activities over the last decade, in order to reflect on past achievements, present ongoing projects and look towards the future. The brochure provides an overview on UNEVOC’s aims, actions and themes in the area of skills development for the world of work.

Through this publication, UNESCO-UNEVOC would above all like to pay a tribute to the many partners that have accompanied UNESCO-UNEVOC on its path, and to acknowledge their contribution to the development and the activities of the UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre, which originally started as a UNESCO-funded project in Berlin in the 1990s before taking up its activities at the United Nations premises in Bonn in 2002.

This publication is also closely linked to the photo competition organized by UNESCO-UNEVOC earlier this year, depicting the different faces of work and learning. The aim of the photo competition was to highlight the diversity of occupations and ways of training for work in different parts of the world. The winning photos can be viewed in our web gallery.

The publication was officially launched during the three-day International Forum on the Role of the UNEVOC Network in Transforming TVET for a Sustainable Future, held in Bonn, Germany from 14 to 16 November 2012, in the presence of the Mayor of Bonn Angelica-Maria Kappel, the Head of the TVET Section of UNESCO Borhene Chakroun, the German Ambassador and Permanent Delegate to UNESCO Dr. Michael Worbs, and the Head of the International Department of the German Federal Office for Vocational Training (BIBB) Ms Birgit Thomann.
