logo3Here are the latest initiatives for the month of June that ICOMOS Sustainable Development Goals Working Group is doing, including different topics such as world heritage and other matters on cultural policies.

SDG item 11. What is needed to create a Culture Goal for sustainable development?

ICOMOS, together with the the Culture 2030 Goal Campaign is doing a survey on how to create concrete and bold steps to shift thinking wherein culture is at the core of decision-making. The campaign is also searching for ideas on how a stand-alone goal on culture can be created. 

Please answer these surveys written in English, French or Spanish but you are free to respond in a language you will be most comfortable with, even if the 3 languages are not used specifically. 
Deadline for responses is 21 June 2022.
