The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all 193 United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.
At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets demonstrate the scale and ambition of the universal Agenda. They recognise that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
The Culture 2030 Agenda provides evidence of culture’s transformative role and looks at culture as a driver for change and for sustainable development. The conceptual framework assesses both the role of culture as a sector of activity, as well as the transversal contribution of culture across different SDGs.
Rather than monitoring the contribution of culture to each relevant SDG Target, the Culture 2030 Agenda considers the contribution of culture across several of the Goals and Targets, with a view to linking them together.
