UNESCO and China lead drive to include culture in the post-2015 development agenda

UNESCO, the national authorities of China and the municipality of Hangzhou are organizing an International Congress on the critical role of culture for sustainable development. Entitled “Culture: Key to Sustainable Development” the international Congress which will take place in Hangzhou, China, from 15 to 17 May will set a landmark in the global debate on shaping the 2015 global development agenda and beyond.

UNESCO has long advocated that culture is essential to sustainable development, because of the resources it embodies for individuals and communities as a source of innovation and creativity.
