Kia ora John,

 

Thank you for the below enquiry, which was passed on to me for reply as
the Secretary General for the New Zealand National Commission for UNESCO.
I would be pleased to provide some information about the National
Commission.

 

The New Zealand National Commission for UNESCO (the National Commission)
was established by the New Zealand government as part of its
responsibilities as a UNESCO Member State. National Commissions ensure the
permanent presence of UNESCO in Member States and contribute to the
Organisation’s efforts to promote international co-operation in the fields
of Education, Natural Sciences, Culture, Social and Human Sciences and
Communication and Information.

 

The National Commission comprises of a Chair and five Commissioners
appointed by the Minister responsible for the New Zealand National
Commission of UNESCO (currently Minister Salesa has this responsibility).
The National Commission operates under a Constitution and its activities
are guided by its Constitution and Charter.

 

The National Commission is provided with Secretariat support by the
Ministry of Education.

 

Three Commission terms are coming to an end in 2019, including the Chair.
I anticipate that an invitation for expressions of interest in these roles
will be publicly advertised on the Ministry of Education website as has
been done in the past and notifications sent to the Commission’s Associate
Members and Co-operating Agencies. I attach the position description used
for previous appointment rounds, but please note that since the last round
there has been a small rise in the fees. The position profile will be
updated ahead of the next round of appointments.

 

The Commissioners receive fees in line with Cabinet Office Circular CO
(12) 6: Fees Framework for members appointed to bodies in which the Crown
has an interest.

 

The role of the Special Advisor Youth is not constitutional and is
appointed by the Chair. This role is unpaid, but actual and reasonable
expenses associated with the role are covered by the National Commission.
The Special Advisor Youth acts as the Chair for the Aotearoa UNESCO Youth
Leaders group and is generally selected from the membership of that group.
Applications to join the youth leaders group have just closed for the
year, but we are likely to recruit annually, with the next advertising
expected in November 2019.

 

I encourage you to follow our website, facebook page and sign up to our
newsletter (I included the link below). These will keep you informed on
our work and developments regarding the appointment of youth leaders.

 

The New Zealand National Commission for UNESCO ministerial appointment
process is managed by the Monitoring and Appointments team in the Ministry
of Education. If you have any further queries you can them on this email
address: [1][email address]

 

Ngā mihi
