A United Nations conference was held in November 1945, with the participation of forty-four countries, of which thirty-seven approved the founding of UNESCO. The UNESCO Constitution was signed, the document entered into force as of 4 November 1946. Subsequently, its headquarters were opened in the 7th arrondissement of Paris in 1958.
