|Educational Spaces No. 3 - Building Basic Education (UNESCO, 1992, 16 p.)|
The Educational Architecture Units of UNESCO present in this issue projects of the 1990/1991 period. These projects have been realized in the light of "Education For All" and show the efforts undertaken by the Educational Architecture Units of UNESCO to design and build a physical environment in accordance with the ideas declared at the World Conference on Basic Education For All in Jomtien, Thailand, in March 1990. This Conference was organized by an interagency commission (UNDP, UNESCO, UNICEF and the World Bank) and brought together experts of UN agencies and NGOs.
The Educational Architecture Units of UNESCO play a crucial role in the promotion of Basic Education For All, by developing Village Basic Education Centres in various regions. These VBECs are not only a place for community participation but are also the result of inter-agency cooperation in the fields of education, health and skills training.
Besides projects for basic education this Newsletter presents educational buildings for primary and secondary education and educational furniture design and gives you an overview on activities in the field of educational architecture.
