The first Culture Summit of UCLG will be hosted by the City of Bilbao (Basque Country, Spain) from the 18-20 March 2015. The UCLG Culture Summit is a new event to promote knowledge-sharing and networking of cities and local governments, recognizing the important place of culture in sustainable cities. It envisages gathering all key stakeholders in the promotion of cultural policies, with special emphasis on cities, local governments, and urban actors, in order to create a full global learning experience among participants.

It will feature good practices of Agenda 21 for culture. It will showcase the best projects of the first edition of the “International Award UCLG – Mexico City – Culture 21”. Additionally, the results of the Pilot Cities programme will be presented.

The Summit will also connect the UN Post-2015 Development Agenda and culture, building on the work carried out in the process of defining the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly #culture2015goal and #UrbanSDG. It will be an occasion to exchange with the international community and UN Agencies as well as civil society organizations.

As Agenda 21 for Culture -UCLG is one of our partners, Culture Action Europe will take part to this summit.
