Post-2015 dialogues : stakeholders call for the inclusion of culture into the sustainable development agenda

POST 2015
October 7, 2014

A recent report by UNDG reviews the outcomes of the multi-stakeholder consultations conducted by the United Nations about the means of implementation of the post-2015 agenda. A section of the report is devoted to culture.

The consultations have shown a strong consensus on the importance of linking culture to the priorities of the post-2015 development agenda” : this is one of the findings from the report “Delivering the post-2015 development agenda” (see below) released on September 25 by the United Nations Development Group. The report summarizes the results of the “post-2015 dialogues” (#dialogues2015), the global consultations launched by the UN in April 2014 to discuss the means of implementation of the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the process of being defined. Dialogues on implementation explore six themes,  including one about “Culture and development”(#culture2015).

Vivendi took part in this consultation by responding to a call for papers inviting stakeholders to contribute ideas and best practices. Vivendi’s paper focused on Corporate Social Responsibility as a way for cultural and creative industries to fight against material and intellectual poverty. The paper can be found on the platform that hosted the consultation, along with 138 other case studies that were submitted to the consultation’s co-leading organizations UNESCO, UNDP and UNFPA.

The results of the post-2015 Dialogues on “Culture and Development” were showcased at the UNESCO World Forum on Culture and Cultural Industries (2- 4 October 2014), organized in cooperation with the Italian Government. The Forum concluded with the adoption of the Florence Declaration, which proposes recommendations on maximizing the role of culture to achieve sustainable development.
