Launch of the #culture2015goal Communiqué


In the years leading to the adoption of the SDGs, several global networks campaigned, under the banner ‘The Future We Want Includes Culture’, for the inclusion of one specific goal devoted to culture, or for the integration of cultural aspects across the SDGs. This campaign was also known as the #culture2015goal campaign.

Four documents were produced between 2013 and 2015, including the Communiqué "Culture in the SDGs outcome document: Progress made, but important steps remain ahead" published in September 2015, which included an analysis of the place of culture in the then recently adopted 2030 Agenda and related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
