Seoul has been made a UNESCO City of Design as of July 20, 2010. This designation is in appreciation of the city's abundant cultural heritage and creative potentials as well as its strong pursuit of diverse design policies. The U.N. agency also highly evaluated the city's potential to help developing countries with its creative urban development programs.

UNESCO launched the Creative Cities Network in 2004 to enhance the social, economic and cultural development of cities in the world, to promote their local creative scenes, and to fulfill the UNESCO's mission towards cultural diversity.

UNESCO appoints the cities network members in seven fields -- literature, film, music, crafts and folk art, design, media arts, and gastronomy. Eight cities including Seoul have been selected as members in the field of design. The others are Buenos Aires, Berlin, Montreal, Nagoya, Kobe, Shenzhen and Shanghai.

Appointed to the network as a City of Design, Seoul will enjoy a variety of benefits.

Seoul is expected to report its national and international activities as a City of Design to the U.N. agency every year and to maintain close relationship with the Korean National Commission for UNESCO.

Mayor Oh Se-hoon said Seoul's appointment as a UNESCO City of Design reflects the international recognition of the city's design policy.
