UNESCO is the acronym for United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, and is an agency of the UN that was established in 1945. UNESCO initially focused on rebuilding  libraries, schools, and museums in Europe that had suffered destruction during World War II. Besides the emphasis and support UNESCO places on environmental, educational, and science programs, it also focuses on efforts to protect humanity’s common cultural heritage.
