It was officially designated a World Decade for Cultural Development activity by UNESCO in 1989.
For purposes of the Project, culture is defined in the holistic sense as a dynamic and organic whole or total way of life. It is concerned with the way people visualize and interpret the world, organize themselves, conduct their affairs, elevate and embellish life, and position themselves in the world.
The Project is divided into an International Component and a Canadian Component. The International Component is designed to develop the holistic concept of culture in broad, general terms, as well as apply it to a complex set of global issues and problems. The Canadian Component is designed to develop the holistic concept of Canadian culture in specific, practical terms, as well as to apply it to a similar set of Canadian issues and problems. As a case study, the Canadian Component provides an opportunity to examine the holistic concept of culture for a country that may be called upon to play a seminal role in the world of the future.
