Voices of Culture report on ‘Culture and the Sustainable Development Goals'
The Brainstorming Report on the topic ‘Culture and the Sustainable Development Goals: Challenges and Opportunities’ has been published.
This ‘Culture and the UN Sustainable Development Goals: Challenges and Opportunities’ Brainstorming Report results from a Brainstorming Meeting organised by Voices of Culture on the 2nd and 3rd of December 2020.
This Brainstorming Report was presented to the European Commission in a Dialogue Meeting on the 11th if February 2021.
The Structured Dialogue framework enables communication between the European Commission and the cultural sector. Its main objective is to provide a channel for the voice of the cultural sector to be heard by EU policymakers, a voice represented by a group of expert practitioners in Europe selected through an open call. These dialogues are also intended to strengthen the advocacy capacity of the cultural sector in policy debates on culture at a European level, whilst encouraging the sector and the Commission to work in as collaborative a way as possible.
It is important to stress at the very outset, that the use of ‘culture’ throughout this report is intended to be inclusive, its use embracing, at the very least, the arts, participation, creative and heritage sectors.
