Destination Unesco: a voyage of discovery around the world
Our March 1976 issue marked the 30th anniversary of Unesco and focussed on the creation and early years of this Specialized Agency of the U.N. devoted to education, science and culture. The unesco courier is now happy to present to its readers, young and less young alike, this exceptional double number: 68 pages of comic strips relating the adventures of a youngster who sets out on a voyage of discovery of unesco activities around the world. Obviously, this issue makes no attempt to present anything even approaching an account of UNESCO's work during the past 30 years. In the course of his rapid journey through time and space our young hero manages to observe a few examples of some of the major problems Unesco has tackled In different parts of the world. Naturally, if more space had been available, each story could have been expanded and developed more fully and many other examples of UNESCO's action could have been presented.
This entire number has been specially conceived and drawn for the unesco courier by a 28-year-old French biologist, Jean-Marie Clément, a research scientist in molecular genetics, assisted by his wife, Safoura Asfia, who is a specialist in genetics and a member of the Permanent Delegation of Iran to Unesco.
