Culture has a vital role both in the immediate response to COVID-19, and in planning for long-term sustainable development.
This fact is at the heart of the statement by members of the #Culture2030Goal Coalition on Culture and #CultureCovid19 launched by a webinar on 21 May.
With the endorsement of this statement by His Excellency Mr Tijjani Muhammad-Bande, President of the 74th UN General Assembly, there is a clear recognition at the highest levels of the need to give culture a more central role in decision-making, now and into the Decade of Action.
Join the campaign to mainstream culture- with all its manifestations including cultural heritage, diversity, rights, arts, music, libraries, knowledge, and local government cultural and help spread the word widely!
