ICOMOS Webinar Series | SDGWG Webinar 1: Integrating Heritage into the SDGs
The ICOMOS Sustainable Development Goals Working Group (SDGWG) is pleased to announce the first webinar of the SDGWG Webinar Series which will form part of the ICOMOS Webinar Series.
We are witnessing a historic time of transition in the global community of policy-makers, governments and activists, since the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, and the associated New Urban Agenda in 2016. The 2030 Agenda is an action plan of people, planet, prosperity and partnerships, to address the most pressing problems our world is facing today.
ICOMOS has also responded to this call. As a global non-governmental organization advising UNESCO and working to promote the conservation of cultural heritage sites, ICOMOS is closely engaged with the topic of sustainable development in recent years, having held major scientific events and issued policy documents to highlight the vital role of cultural heritage within the sustainable development process.
Details of the first Webinar
This first webinar will provide information on what is the role of cultural heritage in the UN Sustainable Development Goals. It will also showcase the critical work of the ICOMOS SDGs Working Group in strengthening efforts to "protect and safeguard the world’s cultural and natural heritage", Target 11.4 under SDG11, to "make our cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable”. The webinar will also provide examples of key partnerships that ICOMOS builds with urban actors, as well as challenges and opportunities in localizing the SDGs from the perspective of culture and cities.
