International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) with International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), United Cities and Local Governments, Culture, The #Culture2030 Network

This session will investigate how well culture has been integrated into the UN 2030 Agenda process so far, especially the VNRs, and the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It will draw lessons from this experience, and assess how far we have come since 2015.

To find ways to build back better, making the most of the interlinkages highlighted by the 2030 Agenda, there will then be an open discussion. This will explore, holistically, how cultural actors, assets, perspectives and institutions can strengthen policy responses across the board, supported by insights from government agencies, major cultural networks and independent experts.
