The first Culture Summit of UCLG will be hosted by the City of Bilbao (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 actors.
The highlight of the first UCLG Culture Summit will be the presentation of “Culture 21: Actions”, a document that builds on the Agenda 21 for Culture that makes a strong link between culture and sustainable development, while providing guides to self-assessment and implementation. “Culture 21: Actions” recommends further expertise, peer-learning, and exchanges.
