President of working group: Mr Peter Phillips

The global community of policy-makers, governments and activists is witnessing a historic time of transition in the past two years, as the United Nations has renewed
its commitment to sustainable development with the conclusion of the Millennium Development Goals (of 2000-15) and the adoption of Agenda 2030 for Sustainable
Development, including 17 ‘Sustainable Development Goals’ (SDGs) (#GlobalGoals) in September 2015, and of the New Urban Agenda (NUA) in October 2016.

ICOMOS has also been 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. Since the adoption of the UN Post-2015 agenda, ICOMOS’ mission has shifted to the  implementation of Agenda 2030/ SDGs and the NUA from the perspective of cultural and natural heritage, within the framework of the ICOMOS mandate and collaboration with strategic partners.
