The future we want includes culture - global campaign
Global expenditure on development over the next 15 years will be defined by the final goal document to be agreed by UN Member States in coming months. If culture is not mentioned, it will be extremely difficult for countries to elaborate policies and provide funds for projects that rely on culture’s role as a driver and an enabler of sustainable development.
‘Culture’ was completely absent from the Millennium Development Goals document . Don’t let this happen again.
Agenda 21 for Culture, the International Federation of Coalitions for Cultural Diversity, Arterial Network, International Council on Monuments and Sites, the International Music Council, Culture Action Europe and the International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies (IFACCA) have launched on May 1st a campaign calling on governments and policy makers defining the post-2015 UN Development Agenda to ensure that targets and indicators on culture will be included as part of the Sustainable Development Goals.
