EUNIC publishes report: The Cultural Dimension of Sustainable Development

EUNIC publishes report: The Cultural Dimension of Sustainable Development

EUNIC Global recently published a report summarising the main discussions and findings of the Knowledge Sharing Workshop held in April 2021.
By Janna Schwab

EUNIC Global organised the Knowledge Sharing Workshop together with the British Council and ifa, with the aim to discuss and further drive the role of culture in sustainable development and to share examples of activities and best practices in the cultural field.

In the report The Cultural Dimension of Sustainable Development: Opportunities for National Cultural Institutes, EUNIC Global summarises the main points of discussion and findings of the two-days online Knowledge Sharing workshop they organised in April this year. This workshop zoomed in on the role and possibilities of culture in the UN Sustainable Development Agenda. The report concludes with recommendations on partnerships, dissemination & communication, advocacy, relevance & efficiency, and monitoring & evaluation.

Further, the report gives deeper insights into the context, policy background and evolution of the role of culture in the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The 2030 Agenda is a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and improve lives and prospects on a global level. Even though the 2020 Agenda predominantly articulates economic, social and environmental dimensions, culture is as well included as a relevant enabler of sustainable development. In the workshop, speakers from the British Council, Culture Ireland, Danish Culture Institute, Goethe-Institut, Institut français, EUNIC, and the European Commission presented case studies dealing with the cultural dimension of social, economic, and environmental sustainability at national, regional, and global level.
