1961 United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) in Sri Lanka
The United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) Colombo is the information arm of the United Nations in Sri Lanka. Since 1961, UNIC has been mandated to share global, regional and local information about the United Nations with the general public.
Marking important United Nations declared days, years, observances and congresses and through outreach activities and media, UNIC raises public awareness of the world organisation, its purpose and ideals. In close partnership with Zonal Education Offices, United Nations Association of Sri Lanka and NGOs, UNIC reaches student communities across the country through speaking engagements. It also assists United Nations Regional Commissions in launching flagship publications and runs a reference library where the public has access to United Nations information sources.
