Paris, France, 19 November 2019 — UNESCO is hosting the Forum of Ministers of Culture, a major event to discuss the central place of culture in public policies around the world and its impact on sustainable development.

More than 140 Ministers and high representatives were present to mark a high point during the 40th session of the General Conference of UNESCO (12-27 November 2019). UNESCO, the only United Nations agency for culture, is returning to the tradition of ministerial meetings in the field of culture, 21 years after the Intergovernmental Conference on Cultural Policies for Development held in Stockholm, Sweden in 1998.

As a platform for priority setting and public policy development, this ministerial meeting is an opportunity to make decisive progress on the role of culture in development.

The Forum would explore these four themes:

In response to contemporary changes, UNESCO is strengthening its multidisciplinary scope and addressing the issue of sustainable development comprehensively by emphasizing the linkages between culture and social, economic, and environmental issues. In the Forum of Ministers of Culture, the ministers will share their views through interactive exchanges. They will present their cultural policy priorities and visions for the future.
