To strengthen culture as a factor of sustainable development, UNESCO implements a number of activities to promote creatives and artists at the national, regional and global levels.
Based on South-South and North-South-South cooperation and favouring public-private collaboration, these activities focus on exchange, training,
advice and capacity building,
which target in particular youth, especially those in developing countries. They are conceived in synergy with the initiatives developed within the framework of international culture Conventions.
The International Fund for the Promotion of Culture, the Creative Cities Network, the Aschberg bursaries and the “Culture et Diversité” bursaries programmes, as well as the promotion of arts education, are at the heart of this commitment.
