UCLG Culture Summit 2017
Wednesday, May 10 2017 All Day

The second UCLG Culture Summit will be held in Jeju (Jeju-do, Republic of Korea) on 10-13 May 2017, hosted by the Jeju Special Self-Governing Province.

The UCLG Culture Summit is the main meeting point at global level of cities, local governments and other stakeholders that are committed to the effective implementation of policies and programmes on culture and sustainability.

Entitled “Commitments and Actions for Culture in Sustainable Cities”, the second Culture Summit of UCLG aims to develop and reinforce messages on the role of culture in sustainable development, with a particular emphasis on the importance of cities and local spaces. It can also be seen as a forum for knowledge-sharing, peer-learning and networking among cities and local governments. It expects to gather approximately 300 participants from all world regions.

The second Culture Summit of UCLG will also respond to the growing importance given to the nexus of culture, cities and sustainable development by international organisations and frameworks. It builds on the results of the first UCLG Culture Summit, which took place in Bilbao on 18-20 March 2015 with the title “Culture and sustainable cities”. On the occasion of the 1st UCLG Culture Summit, a practical toolkit called Culture 21: Actions was adopted, which enables local governments, civil society activists and other relevant stakeholders to evaluate, implement and exchange knowledge on how to fully integrate culture in local sustainable development. Experiences from cities currently implementing Culture 21: Actions will be presented and discussed at the Jeju Summit.

Over three days, the 2nd UCLG Culture Summit will combine plenary sessions, smaller, thematic parallel sessions, project presentations and networking spaces. Additional information about the Summit themes and structure is presented in this document and is also available on the Summit website.
