We believe that it is now time for culture to be at the heart of a positive transformative change. We believe that all cultural actors are ready. UCLG is pleased to communicate that an important document to support the inclusion of a goal explicitly focused on culture in the Post-2015 Development Agenda has been recently published. The document has been promoted by four global cultural networks: IFACCA, Agenda 21 for culture, IFCCD and Culture Action Europe. The document was presented at the World Congress of UCLG, which took place on 1-4 October 2013 in Rabat (Morocco).
The document carries the justification for such a goal and puts forward several targets and indicators. The wording we suggest for the Culture Goal is “Ensure cultural sustainability for the wellbeing of all”. Such a goal would provide coherence, conceptual clarity and strength to the Agenda. It would also accelerate change in other areas and the achievement of other goals.
