Cultural diplomacy

Cultural diplomacy is a type of public diplomacy that includes the "exchange of ideas, information, art, language and other aspects of culture among nations and their peoples in order to foster mutual understanding.

The Institut has been actively involved in promoting cultural diplomacy.
Multidisciplinary collaboration leads to opportunities for new innovation and stimulates art and culture.

UNESCO IPL PUBLIC DIPLOMACY E-TEAM (Section "Cultural Diplomacy")  focuses on the co-creation of the public diplomacy ecosystem and on aligning cultural diplomacy practices with the standards of inclusive policies.
In order to encourage the active participation of ecosystem actors in the co-creation process, this E-team should ensure a clear vision and a shared value base on which the ecosystem activities may be built.

Through the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the international community has recognized, for the first time, the essential role of culture as an enabler of development. Among the 2030 Agenda’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals, SDG 11 on sustainable cities makes it clear that culture has an essential role to play in realizing sustainable urban development, particularly through strengthened efforts to protect and safeguard the world’s cultural and natural heritage.

Culture is an enabler of the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development. The cultural and creative industries are among the fastest growing in the world, representing 30 million jobs worldwide. Intercultural dialogue and respect for cultural diversity are powerful tools for reconciliation and the creation of peaceful societies. Intangible culture heritage represents a source of resilience and knowledge for addressing key challenges, including poverty, providing quality education and climate change. Culture is who we are, where we have been, and where we are going. Development cannot be sustainable without it.
