Culture & Sustainable Development
Culture for Sustainable Development
The integration of culture in development processes, strategies and policies at the national level is already well underway across the broad public policy spectrum, from reducing poverty through jobs, skills and employment in the cultural sector, to strengthening quality education for all and social justice, to providing context-relevant responses to foster environmental sustainability. UNESCO is engaged in providing a comprehensive support to Member States for the design, adaptation and implementation of their public policies by developing mechanisms and tools to document and measure the impact of culture on sustainable development from an integrated and comprehensive perspective. Culture should not be considered as a policy domain in isolation, but rather as a cross-cutting dimension that may foster a paradigm shift to renew policymaking towards an inclusive, people-centered and context-relevant approach.
