The potential of culture to drive sustainable development is too often unrealised. In a world where resilience, creativity, cohesion and a right-based, people-centred approach are more essential than ever, we simply cannot afford to leave culture out in our efforts to respond to global challenges and build a better world.
How can we ensure a higher place for culture on the agenda, and so trigger the necessary shift of paradigm?
Entitled “Toward a Culture Goal in the Sustainable Development Agenda“, the #culture2030goal campaign ResiliArt x Mondiacult event explored how to do this, and the potential explicit priorisation of culture to make a difference. In doing so, it also offered insights into how we can do better today, both in designing culture policies that support sustainable development, and in designing sustainable development policies that integrate culture fully.
