UNESCO to open representation in Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) says they will open a club in Playa del Carmen to have representation in the state of Quintana Roo.

The announcement was made by Enrique Rentería Castro, vice president of the World Federation of Clubs, Centers and Associations UNESCO and local deputy, Sonia López Cardiel. The function of the clubs, according to Rentería Castro, is to act on global problems with local repercussions that contribute to the reflection process of social priorities.

Deputy Sonia Lopez stressed that “the expectation now is to take these programs and actions to young people, especially in troubled areas like Villas del Sol in Playa del Carmen, a large-scale subdivision where there is a lack of cultural, educational and recreational options, precisely because of poor planning with small houses.”

During their presentation, they highlighted the participation of non-government organizations that have joined the proposal to transform the country.

“Our society needs programs that invest in cognitive processes that allow for the education of the culture of peace. Only then will we face violence,” said Rentería Castro.
