Culture in the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda

The “one size does not fit all” motto places culture at the centre of context-based approaches to sustainable development and improved governance. In what ways does culture act as an enabler and a driver throughout the sustainable development agenda? How does culture contribute to building capabilities and agency and achieving transformative change? How can culture strengthen the Post-2015 agenda and answer the most pressing challenges of the global community? What are the consequences of a Post-2015 agenda without culture?
