Re|Shaping cultural policies [Recurs electrònic] : a decade promoting the diversity of cultural expressions for development : 2005 Convention global report

Unesco Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (2005).
ISBN: 9789231001369.Publisher: Paris : UNESCO, 2015Description: 238 p. : digital, fitxer PDF (7,62 Mb).Online resources: E-Link Summary: For the first time at the global level, the recently adopted United Nations Sustainable Development Agenda for 2030 acknowledges the key role of culture, creativity and cultural diversity to solving sustainable development challenges. This recognition resonates with the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions, the 10th anniversary of which we celebrate in 2015. Over the last decade, this landmark Convention –now ratified by 140 Parties– has changed the overall approach on culture and cultural goods and services. It recognized the sovereign right of governments to introduce policies to protect and promote the diversity of cultural expressions. It highlighted the dual nature of cultural activities, goods and services: they have both an economic and a cultural dimension – providing jobs and revenues, driving innovation and sustainable economic growth, and at the same time conveying identities and values, fostering social inclusion and sense of belonging. Today, we can witness the multiple advantages of this combination, as a force for both social and economic sustainability,as a driver to promote human rights and fundamental freedoms. The new 2030 Agenda raises high expectations, and this is the importance of this first-ever UNESCO monitoring Report, to collect, analyse and disseminate information on the many different ways in which countries across the world are integrating culture into sustainable development policies and programmes. This report comes in timely support for the implementation of the new Agenda, to ensure effectiveness and maximize impact, helping countries to evaluate goals, resolve policy questions, and devise new measures that meet people’s demands and needs.
