Cities, Cultures and Developments: a report that marks the fifth anniversary of Agenda 21 for culture

“Today, the Agenda 21 for culture has been consolidated as an essential declaration for all those cities which give an important role to culture in sustainable development. The declaration is cited by mayors and councillors, but also by civil society and cultural actors, an unequivocal sign of its open nature. It has been translated into seventeen languages and maintains a website permanently updated through circulars and newsletters... [this report] is a document with detailed explanations of the implementation of the declaration in cities from all over the world, and rich in observations, suggestions and nuances.” (p.5)
