Description

The function of culture as a pillar of sustainable development is increasingly recognized. This dialogue will discuss how heritage, creativity, diversity, cultural participation and the transmission of knowledge are instrumental to building people-centred societies. It will also explore the operational role played by cities and local governments within this context, and the need for them to be acknowledged in, and empowered by, the New Urban Agenda.
