ICOMOS - MONDIACULT 2022 Culture Forum | Culture & Heritage Policies & Practice for Sustainable Development: Past, Present and Future
As part of global discussions on cultural policies and sustainable development that are happening in the lead up to the UNESCO World Conference on Cultural Policies and Sustainable Development in September 2022, ICOMOS is holding a three-part Culture Forum which is discussing the role of culture and heritage in Sustainable Development.
Since May 2022, discussions have been happening to look at the role of culture and heritage in supporting communities, policymakers, future thinkers and governments to achieve sustainable development objectives. These events provide reflections of the past, present and future of international culture and heritage policies and practices with the conclusions from these events being used to shape ICOMOS’ approach and response to MONDIACULT 2022 and other future policy recommendations.
Event 1: Looking Back: A MONDIACULT 1982 Retrospective
The MONDIACULT 1982 Conference was an international forum that aimed to shape global policy and celebrated the distinctive cultures and heritage of people around the world. It identified that culture encompasses ways of life, value systems, traditions and beliefs that are a fundamental human right. Forty years on, this event looked back and took stock of the aspirations, expectations, and outcomes of Mondiacult 1982. With an expert panel of culture and heritage professionals, this event discussed whether the aims of MONDIACULT 1982 were met and questioned what were the effects on global policies after 40 years.
