The “Culture 21 Actions” toolkit provides guidance for cities aiming to evaluate, design and implement cultural policies contributing to sustainable development was adopted at the 1st UCLG Culture Summit, held in Bilbao on 18-20 March 2015 under the title “Culture and Sustainable Cities”.
The ‘Pilot Cities’ programme fosters increased local and international understanding of the connection between culture and local sustainable development in the participating cities.
Pilot Cities programme enables the design, implementation and evaluation of innovative pilot measures in areas relevant to culture and sustainable cities, through collaboration between public, private and civil society actors. It facilitates exchanges, evaluation, peer-learning and capacity-building among cities concerned with culture and sustainable development and provide wide visibility to the participating cities and their policies and programmes in global discussions on the role of culture in sustainable development. The programme contributes to the advocacy for the explicit consideration of cultural factors in the paradigm of sustainable cities internationally.
