UNESCO Courier: The story of Magdalena - South Sudan

WPDI Youth Peacemaker Magdalena Nandege's story was highlighted in the October-December 2017 edition of the UNESCO Courier:

"I think that art can do a lot for peace in South Sudan, so much more than long speeches. It can show positive characters that people can identify with, inviting them to practise peace and sustainable development. We need more art in South Sudan so we can have more peace."

About The UNESCO Courier

Of all the journals published by the United Nations and its specialised institutions, the UNESCO Courier has always occupied first place for the number of its readers and the range of its audience, said the American journalist Sandy Koffler, the Courier's founder and first editor-in-chief, in 1988.  The magazine has changed a great deal over the years, both in content and in form. But it pursues its original mission: promote UNESCO’s ideals, maintain a platform for the dialogue between cultures and provide a forum for international debate.

Available online since March 2006, the UNESCO Courier serves readers around the world in the six official languages of the Organization (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish) and in Portuguese.
