To receive a UNESCO United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization status is a special honor of which we can be rightfully proud. In this network of excellence, that is recognized worldwide, the Manicouagan area begins a promising journey, full of opportunities offered by this designation.

In the region, such a designation has to be better known, better understood and better displayed. It can serve as a foundation for the creation of a regional identity based on sustainable development and foster a sense of belonging. Outside the region, we must better display our territory, our creative efforts and our successes.
