The Asia/Pacific Culture Center for UNESCO

ACCU training in audio visual production

The Asia/Pacific Cultural Centre for UNESCO (ACCU) is a non-profit organization for Asia and the Pacific regional activities in line with the principles of UNESCO, working for the promotion of mutual understanding and cultural cooperation among peoples in the region.

ACCU was established in 1971 in Tokyo through joint efforts of both public and private sectors in Japan. ACCU has since been implementing various regional cooperative programs in the fields of culture, education and personnel exchange in close collaboration with UNESCO and its Member States in Asia and the Pacific.

It has a vigorous program. Too bad that the United States has not worked with its neighbor countries to establish a comparable center for our region!
