Mayors, experts and activists reiterated the importance of culture as a key dimension of sustainability at the 2nd UCLG Culture Summit (10-13 May 2017, Jeju, Republic of Korea). Urban leaders attending the Summit also acknowledged that UN 2030 Agenda and the New Urban Agenda will not be achieved unless culture is at the center of action.

Entitled “Commitments and Actions for Culture in Sustainable Cities”, the Summit served as a meeting point for local governments and other stakeholders on the role of culture in sustainable development, with particular emphasis on the importance of cities and local spaces. Among the key questions addressed at the Summit were: How are cities working to fully integrate culture in their sustainable development strategies and programmes? How much progress has been made on the UN 2030 Agenda (including the SDGs – Sustainable Development Goals) and the New Urban Agenda? How to further strengthen the global constituency and knowledge on culture and sustainable development?

ASEF supported the Summit, which was organised by United Cities and Local Governance (UCLG) and hosted by the Jeju Special Self-Governing Province.

Gathering over 500 participants, the 2nd UCLG Culture Summit follows the inaugural edition in Bilbao, Spain in 2015. The Summit is one of the Urban Thinkers Campus promoted by the World Urban Campaign of UN-Habitat.
