What UNESCO Is Doing Now

What UNESCO Is Doing Now

A Preparatory Commission has been set up with Sir Julian Huxley as Secretary, its main function being to call the first session of the General Conference. It will also provide without delay for immediate action on urgent matters. A most urgent matter is, of course, the problem of the devastated countries, a problem that cannot be left until the General Conference meets some time this year. It has therefore appointed a special technical sub-committee to examine the problems relating to the educational, scientific and cultural needs of the devastated countries. This committee will work in collaboration with UNRRA, which is already tackling the problem of education in these countries. If it is satisfied that any ameliorative measures are immediately practicable, it will report accordingly to the Preparatory Commission and the Commission will then the steps to co-ordinate the provision of relief by approaching Governments, organisations or persons wishing to contribute money, supplies or services.
