The members of the #Culture2030Goal Campaign strongly welcome the undertaking in the Declaration of the MONDIACULT 2022 Conference to integrate a specific Culture Goal in the post-2030 development agenda.
This commitment by governments echoes the core argument made by the Campaign in its own statement in advance of MONDIACULT – namely that the only way to ensure the proper recognition of culture and cultural actors in supporting sustainable development is through an explicit Culture Goal.
The #Culture2030Goal campaign members, representing global cultural networks, including Culture Action Europe, believe that further concrete action to refine and clarify the form and content of a Culture Goal would pay major dividends, both in terms of engaging early in plans for the post-2030 agenda, and in focusing on the rich and essential role of culture in sustainable development.
The latest statement released today by the #Culture2030 campaign calls on UNESCO Member States to act now and deliver a Culture Goal!
