PDF File Size: 21 KB | Download   
The World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development, which is
worldwide celebrated on 21 May, provides an opportunity to promote culture in all its diversity and in all its forms: tangible and intangible heritage, creative industries, goods and services. “Culture, in all its diversity, can foster a sense of identity and cohesion for societies at a time of uncertainty. It is also a powerful source of creativity and innovation. No development can be sustainable without it”, says Irina Bokova, UNESCO Director-General, in her message for the day that was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in December 2002. Culture is a driver of development, led by the growth of the cultural sector and creative industries and the benefits arising from safeguarding tangible and intangible cultural heritage. It is also an enabler for sustainable development - the context in which development policies can move forward, through local ownership, with efficiency and impact. Intercultural dialogue is essential to make the most of diversity, to deepen the roots of development and share its benefits.
