The UNESCO Club HAEMUS was born of individual initiative: as an answer to a widespread feeling among their members of the need to participate more actively in international life, in harmony with UNESCO’s approach and within its ﬁelds of competence. Our activities are directed towards the ideals set forth in the Preamble to the UNESCO Constitution.
