U Thant House is a leading centre for learning and dialogue in Yangon, focused on the key challenges facing Myanmar today. At this critical time in the country’s political, economic, social, and environmental history, U Thant House aims to help the people of Myanmar reimagine peace and rethink development.

 

Inspired by the life and work of U Thant, the third Secretary-General of the United Nations, and situated at his former residence in Yangon, programmes at U Thant House are centred around the issues that were most important to him: peace, human dignity, sustainable development, education, and protecting the environment.

 

Programme Areas:

  • Museum & Education - Inspiring Myanmar’s future generations

  • Research & Dialogue - Transforming public debate

  • Research & Outreach - Connecting Myanmar with global debate

  • Heritage - Honouring U Thant’s Life and Legacy

 

One world: We are guided by the values espoused by U Thant – internationalism, education for peace, tolerance, and non-discrimination.
