World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development
21 May, 2021
The Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity was adopted in 2001 by UNESCO and in 2002 the World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development was established to affirm culture’s contribution to the three dimensions of sustainable development, acknowledge further the natural and cultural diversity of the world, and recognise that cultures and civilizations can contribute to, and are crucial enablers of, sustainable development. The Day is also to advance the four goals of the 2005-adopted UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions of:
- supporting sustainable systems of governance for culture
- achieving a balanced flow of cultural goods and services and increase mobility of artists and cultural professionals
- integrating culture in sustainable development frameworks
- promoting human rights and fundamental freedoms.
